Clean & Simple in Blue, Brown, and Cream

^.^ Everybody was so nice in their comments about my first blog entry. Thank you!

I've been fiddling around with the look of my blog, and I think I've finally settled on it. I'll have to change the background at some point when I'm not too lazy.

Today I have another card. Nothing fancy, but I like how it turned out. It's like a cute little quilt. I hope the quilt counts as a DIY embellishment. I have no idea when I would give this to anybody, but I thought it was perfect for the sentiment.

It's a patchwork card, and I love this style because it's really easy to use up those scraps you've had sitting around forever but are way too small to really do anything with. The stamp is a $1.00 stamp from Michael's, I believe.

=) Hope you like it!
