When I saw the Alphabet Challenge a couple of days ago it jogged my memory as far as not having done a black and white card in a while. Instead of doing one though I figured I might as well do two while I was at it - and sorta reverse some of the black and white. The flower die is from Memory Box and the sentiments are from Simon Says Stamp. Oh, and if you stare at the second card long enough with that checkered patterned paper you may start getting dizzy. I'll enter this first card in the black and white Alphabet Challenge.

Just a little flower (Lawn Fawn), a few die cuts, a sentiment, and lots of white. What else can I say other than this is a really, really short post............You didn't have to listen to any of my bull today!
I'll enter this in the challenge at Less Is More (Anything Goes)
Thanks for stopping by........and keep smiling!

I assume this is lavender anyway. It's purple - although I could have colored it pink I guess. We'll go with lavender though. I had this image all printed, colored, and die cut and then it sat...and it sat, and sat, and sat. I've tried at least 10 different things with this and patterned paper, solid card stock, embossing, and whatever else I could think of and it just wasn't gelling at all. I even dug out the texture paste - and of course it was all dried up. Figures. So.......here you go with another very clean and simple card.
.....and while I'm on the subject of flowers. It's starting to get a little warmer in this part of Texas and my pansies are finally looking a little like someone probably stepped on them. They're still hanging in there for now though and I just had to snap a picture before it was too hot and they all died......
......and last but not least. (I know you're getting tired of reading this) This part of Texas is not only warming up but it's also dry. Bone dry! The last couple of months we've had winds like you can't even image. Combine the wind and the dry weather and that equals tumbleweeds around here....thousands of them - to the point where they had drop off points around town and you could haul your tumbleweeds there and they'd dispose of them. These are some that got stuck between two homes here in town (thankfully it wasn't ours)!

Just a little note for today...........

One last Wabbit before Easter. Whether you celebrate Easter or not, I hope you have a great day.
This Wabbit is from Gerda Steiner Designs and he's such a cutie. I love all his little eggs lined up beside him. CAS card using a die from My Favorite Things, colored in Copics, a few clouds sponged in the background, and mounted on a piece of patterned paper.

Gosh, here it is April and almost Easter already. Not sure where all the time goes......but it's going. It won't be too much longer and we'll be sitting here making cards for Christmas.
