Simple Sundays ....

Blessings, friends :)
I just love Sundays! 

It's my favorite day of the week, including posting my Simple Sundays ~
a place to journal my thoughts, connect with ideas and let creativity flow!
 It's such a refreshing day spiritually, too ...

Jeremiah 31:25 ...
 "For I will satisfy the weary soul, and every languishing
soul I will replenish."
We've so much to be thankful for,
 recollect blessings of the past week, and forging ahead in faith!

Today's card is Simple :)
I'm absolutely in love with blue and yellow lately!
Such contrasting hues and they just pair together so nicely,
I just going gah gah every time I get the chance to use them together :)
I inked up for the first time (woohoo!) the Country Morning stamp set
from SU! and propped up the bushel of flowers by using a 3d foam dot.

And as you can see, I played with cork!
This is a positively WONDERFUL element to card making.
Unlike it's cousin 'the burlap', LOL, it was so easy to use,
 pliable and very craft friendly.
I can't wait to dabble with more cork colors and make cork creations ...
the DCWV mat stack is filled with colors of this fun stuff!

The sentiment that comes with this set is very small ...
it's hard to read the quote, but it says

"there is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy."
by Ralph Blum

Thanks for stopping by ~
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
