*Fall To Layout #153*

Happy Saturday everyone!  I hope you are enjoying the last few weekends of summer... amazing how fast it blows by!

I always have such big plans for the summer and then poof, it's over and nothing gets done.  This is the second summer in a row that I've wanted to get around to painting our front door.  Last year I was barely home so it didn't happen... this year I think I am just too daunted by choosing the colour and then taking on the task.  I wonder if it will actually get done....

It's time for another sketch over at the Clean and Simple Stamping blog....  and this week we are playing along with the girls at CAS-ual Friday!  I encourage you to check out the twist to our sketch so you can enter your card in both challenges!

This one truly is quick and easy!  I wonder if I should have created another layer on the base and textured it to create some more interest?  But then I think that it would have made it too busy for a Clean and Simple card....
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  PTI White; Stampin' Up! Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight
*Images: Penny Black; Impress
*Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa; Copics
*Challenges:  FTL#153

So quick and easy to throw together.... I hope you'll play along with us!

it's perfect Nancy; so clean and simple.

I painted our front door a few summers ago; it's time consuming. I feel the same that summer has just flown by; more so because we just got our summer weather this month!

I really like this one, Nancy. Perfect the way it is. I just wish we could actually have more than a few days of summer weather in a row!! :0)
