Since I have been in a simple kinda card mood lately I decided to make two fairly quick and easy cards to share with you today.  On the first one I used one of the smallest stamps from the Birds & Butterfly labels set as a little medallion and a scripture from Scripture Collections 5.  I cut out the medallion using my Grand Caliber and the Spellbinders labels 18 set which perfectly coordinates.  Basic Grey's Marjolaine designer paper went perfectly with some fun ribbon I picked up last week.

For my second card I went all manly with the Birch background and the Father's Day set.  Now my dad loves Moose and I know that I will be making his father's day card with this set for sure!  Once again I went for simple.  Simple, easy straight stamping, a bit of sponging, a scrap of ribbon and some brads.  My moose cut out with Spellbinders classic circles and layered on the ODBD fancy ovals.
Now you need to hop on over to visit Angie and see what loveliness she has to share with you today.
