Keeping It Simple with Mo

So much for having lots of time over the 3 day weekend to stamp. Ha! However, I did get the bulk of my craft room clean up done and could even vacuum it today, I don't normally get excited about vacuuming, but in this case, it was an exciting accomplishment! ;-)

I did, however, have time to put together a quick card for this week's Digital Pencil/Mo Manning challenge - Clean & Simple. This has always been one of my favorite Mo images, yet I've never made a card with it. However, as part of my craft room clean up, I challenged myself to only use an image I'd already printed/stamped and to only use paper from my scrap stash. (Believe me, with as many scraps as I have this was not a hardship! lol!)

This project started out as a birthday card. However, while going through my word stamps, I found this old phrase stamp from The Angel Company and I thought it fit this image so perfectly. So, now it's a thank you card with "Thanks!" typed on the inside. :) I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Sentimental Sundays - Ribbon (and a sentiment)
Crafts and Me Challenges - Anything goes
Cute Card Thursday - You're Having a Laugh

Well, no more fun in my nice clean stamping room tonight. (And, yes, I did clean up after myself!) Back to work tomorrow - yuck! At least it's a short one.

Have a great week!
