Simply Fabulous

Hello my friends! Hope you are having a great day. Sorry for the lack of post lately. I don't want to bother you with my stuff, but I am having really and ugly back problems, not much stamping time for me and in addition of that 2 weeks ago I feel down and my poor back is worse. Please if you pray, keep me in your prayers.

Anyway, today after doing a quick trip for the blogosphere and I found one of the cute challenges over at Moxi Fab World: The Vertical Sketch Challenge and since I had this card already made, I just decided to write a quick post and show you this pretty card.


As you can see this card is very simple and super fabulous!! Sentiment buttons and Cardstocks are from Gina K. Designs, the paper is from Cosmo Cricket: Material Girl Collection.
