Just a note ...

'Allo, 'allo, 'allo :)  It has been a while since I last posted (beginning of December!)  Since then Christmas and New Years has been and gone and now looking at the date we are already half way through January.
Today I have a clean and simple card to share with you,  it is stinking hot here in Melbourne, if you are watching the tennis the poor athletes are suffering in the 40 degrees plus temperatures and I have to admit that I did suffer that type of heat making this card in my craft room!  It gets the hot afternoon sun so I sort of quickly made it and got out of there and have come to the lounge where the air conditioner is to post it on my blog.  Personally I don't mind the heat wave we are going through at the moment.
The clean and simple card is for Top Tip Tuesday - CAS, I have followed the sketch from Annabelle Stamps (AC175) and have used the recipe from The Pink Elephant - 2 patterned papers, 1 border die/punch and 1 heart.
 here is my card ...

not sure where the heart stamp is from (I found it buried at them bottom of my stamp collection!), the butterfly and title is from Annabelle Stamps 'cherry blossom' stamp set.
materials - vanilla cardstock, Core 'dinations sunflower cardstock, Kaisercraft duck egg cardstock; Pink Paislee 'prairie hill' papers; Annabelle stamps 'cherry blossom' stamp set, heart ???; Versafine onyx black ink; MFT mini tab quartet and notebook edge dies.
Have a lovely afternoon everyone and don't suffer too much with the heat ... me I am going to have a game or 2 of 'rummykub' - I learnt this game while on Pitcairn Island and became addicted to it (a bit like the card game gin rummy but with tiles) so Neil bought me it at Xmas ... so far I have gone from minus 189 points to only minus 25 but now I am back at minus 69 points ... I need to concentrate more!

Super cute design Janet! I just returned to the Gold Coast from Victoria today and I didn't mind the heat either, but those fires were just a little scary, my cousin was so lucky it totally burnt around his house.
Hope you have a great week, so glad to have you play along at AnnaBelle Stamps!

So many cute elements here. Love the notebook paper edge and the Yellow Grey color combo is one of my favorites. Sweet.
