It's Stamp Simply Time!

Well, it's Friday and that means time to stamp simply with Sharon Johnson! Sharon has the coolest challenge for us today! For this challenge you just need to think spring! I'm so excited about that because I am so ready for spring!

So here are the rules....and they are EPLS!...you have to use pink, green and flowers! Well! ...these are a few of my favorite things!

...are you all singing now!...sorry...the dork factor again! ;)

Well, this challenge is perfect for me! I received the most fantabulous little package from this super ...SUPER... sweet blogging friend of mine...the great Julie Koerber... It contained the cutest little Penny Black stickers! ...and ....they are pink and green! Well, I knew I had to use at least one of these for this challenge! It's too perfect to pass up and, well, you can't get much more simple than that!

and...here is the first card....
How cute is that sticker! I'm so very thankful for you guys! I will confess that before this I had not heard of Penny Black. Keep in mind I am still relatively knew to stamping and my first and only exposure prior to starting this blog in August was Stampin' Up. It's so much fun to meet all of you and find all of these really fun stamps and accessories!

Ok...sorry if I am gushing! But you know I think you guys rock!

Back to the cards...and well...I am still keeping it simple. I did create two cards but I used my favorite layout and just changed a few things. I love this layout! It's simple and it works for a quick card. My first card literally took less than 5 minutes to put together. Talk about your EPLS!

So on to the second card. I used the other Pink Petticoat I printed out the other day that was sitting in my ginormous pile on my desk! I can barely see over that! I colored her with my copics used my favorite Stampin Up paper...and I only have a 6X6...roughly...piece left of this and will cry once that's gone! ...and viola! Another EPLS....

That's it for me. I cannot wait to see what you guys do with this challenge! I hope you have as much fun with it as I did! It's pretty cold as I post this...I know we will warm a bit today but this challenge has definitely gotten me in the mood for a hot sun, cold drink and a pool to enjoy it all
by!

nice job! Ilove the use of the patterned paper in the back. It is subtle and you don't really notice it at first, but then it begs to be noticed when you look at the cards longer!
