Fun With Pastels

Hello everyone, and welcome by my little blog today.  No Design Team assignments today, and no real reason for posting.  I'm having a quiet day at home with my hubby, and I'm being VERY lazy.  Dinner is in the crock pot (easy peasy) and I'm just chillin' out.  I made my card late last night, but couldn't photograph it until today anyway, we are.
I kept this VERY simple.  I have SO much patterned paper that I need to use up, so I decided to create a card using just paper scraps.  These are all miscellaneous pieces of sweet pastel Crate Paper (various lines) that I cut into strips, pieced together, and attached to my card.  Although the paper strips do say things like happy birthday and hurray, I also used a small chipboard piece for the ultimate (raised) sentiment.  That's it.  Like I said, a very simple card.
I'm playing along in a few challenges today.  I haven't had the opportunity to play along in many challenges lately, which ultimately means that I haven't "won a prize" in a very, very long time.  Praise God that I am a very blessed gal, and my hubby provides for me far beyond what I need or deserve.  I'm not complaining.  It would just (as always) be such a blessing to win a little prize.  I know y'all hear me on that one.   LOL  I sure hope you're having a great week and that you've been able to keep crafty, stay active, and enjoy all the blessings in your life.  I'm always here to pray for you if you need uplifting.  Just let me know.  Other than that, my friends, just have a blessed week!
