many thanks.

here's a simple card in summer colors :D i love madras print & plaid (don't own much in relation to clothing, but still enjoy it), especially when it's fun paper like this! i kept this card really simple... and i like how easy it was to make, but next time i think i'll add a bit more, or change the focal point.

one thing that's nice is that there's no ribbon, glitter, or bling, so this could actually work for a GUY card :D i have been trying to expand my abilities, and my brothers tell me that brads are the best part of the "guy cards" i make :D (not that i can totally rely on them for a sense of style... haha!)
this is quick because i have some storytelling to do tomorrow for VBA (it's been going great this week), and i weeded at church after our "day" was over--thus, i am wiped out.
have a great thursday, and don't forget to enter the giveaway if you haven't. and please come back tomorrow for another post (*crosses fingers*) TFL :D

I like it when you pare down your style a little bit and give us one of these 'simpler' cards. It's more in line with something I could make without all the fancy gadgets you have, and you're absolutely right about it being appropriate as a 'guy card.'

Good going!
