Do you know your ABCs and 1-2-3s?

ABC.... easy as 1-2-3. I've got that little ditty in my head now! And, lucky for you -- there's a reason for it! :-) That's the topic for today's Stamp Simply challenge! All you need to do is make letters or numbers a focal point in your card!

You can see Sharon Johnson's lovely card and read up on the challenge HERE for ssnotime107!

For my creation, I played it really, really simple. I had an old Hero Arts set that featured the letter "A" and I loved it because it had the word appreciation. I thought it made up a cute Thank You card.

This card couldn't be any easier. I stamped the large "A" onto some Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper, cut it out and then used the flourish and appreciate in the set to stamp on a white strip. I used Pear Tart Memento Ink and Vivid Aqua. Mat it up on a strip of blue from the Lime Rickey Basic Grey pad and you're done with the strip! The card was created my layering and paper piercing other pieces from the Lime Rickey pad. Add a prima flower and a sparkly button and... done! I think I am going to give this to my son for showing him I appreciate some of the help he's been giving me around the house. I know it has a flower on it but maybe he'll over look that!! :-)
