simply saturday…simply hope

Sometimes simple is all you need. Stamps, ink, paper and one tiny embellishment.

One of my favorite stamp sets from Avocado Arts is the My Wish for You set. It’s a charity set so proceeds from this set are donated by Avocado Arts. It’s a win-win set…you get but you also give.

I’ve paired up the simply beautiful hope/butterfly image with a pretty in pink chevron background. It’s made by stamping a chevron border repeatedly in two different ink colors. I admit that pairing up the two different pinks, one warm the other cool, makes for an unlikely pairing but somehow, it works. I think that by stamping in the pinks, this would make a great card for someone with breast cancer. The sad truth is that it seems these days we all know at least one woman who is currently battling this disease.


Have a simply wonderful weekend!
