Repurposing and Keeping it Simple

365 Cards Challenge for Day 11 - Repurposed.  We were challenged to find a paper in our stash that was designed for one season or occasion - and use it for something completely different.  I chose to work with Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses line - used a Penny Black sentiment, buttons, lace and WOC paper flowers for a card that is not at all Christmas-y.

Day 12 -  Ah, the old KISS principal.  Keep It Simple.   3 basic ingredients... Design Paper, Sentiment + 1 (ONE!) embellishment.   I started with some jungley themed DP by Doodlebug  & DCWV, printed up a computer generated sentiment and topped it off with an adorable Hippo feltie from Cosmo Cricket. (I'm a sucker for googly eyes!)

It's been a good day.  Crafting, reading, relaxing... but now it's time for bed (after I move my clocks forward an hour)    Thanks for looking.  

I always enjoy your comments, so if you've got time - say hello
