365 Cards: Day 136

Ahh, amazingly similar to the card I made for day 135 ... I know.

If my husband knew I spent 10 minutes making a card, instead of finishing packing ... ack! (I'm leaving on a 6am flight to Oregon today. The kids' clothes are still strewn around as I do the final inventory of clothes.)

So, I came to the computer area to collect my camera and took a quick peek at 365 Cards and saw the inspiration for today: red, white and black. I am always in love with when I see others create cards with this combo. How could I possibly pass up the opportunity to create?

And so, here's another simple card from li'l me. And, of course, since I'm supposed to be packing and haven't had any time to clean and reorganize, the supplies I used for Monday's card are still laying on the craft table. So, of course, I reached for those items as I crafted a quick and easy card.

Quick and easy doesn't mean any less heartfelt when I use this card to thank a friend for a special something! :)

Supplies - Paper: CTMH Animal Crackers. Stamps: CTMH Solo T. Ink: CTMH Tulip and Black. Tools: SU scallop circle, CM circle. Embellishment: Ribbon.

Ok ... now I *really* need to finish packing.
