Hello, Friend....

Good morning! Well, when you're reading this I should be in sunny California hopefully sleeping in, at the beach, whale watching, or celebrity stalking.., er watching! :)

I received my release order from Papertrey on Friday and the first thing I had to play with is Maile Belle's new set, Modern Basics. Oh my gosh do I love this set. It's so easy to line up and stamp...just complete bliss!

I'm using the colors from this week's Play Date Cafe:



Aren't the pretty? I decided to make a general "hello" card.


I love that long line of leaves. It's just so cool. The whole really rocks. You should check it out. I really like how you can make a simple and modern card with just one or two images from the set. What a timesaver - especially since as I am posting this, I should be packing. :)


Well, have a great day. Thanks for stopping by!



Stamps: Modern Basics (Papertrey)
Card Stock: Pale Plum, Apricot Appeal, Ruby Red (SU); Vanilla (Papertrey)

You got yours before you left? NO FAIR! But man is this card pretty!
Hope you are having a wonderful time in the sun while I'm stuck here in the snow...*pout*

Ooooh, I just ordered this same set, and am waiting for it to arrive (hopefully this week)! Love this simple design. Great job using the new stamps! :)

Debbie Gaydos said...

this is BEE-UTIFUL!! I waffled on this set and didn't get it (for now) knowing eventually I will probably "need" it. This makes me want it for sure! :)

Maile Belles said...

Wow, Keva! This is great! This is the first time I've seen my set used by anyone other than the DT. So exciting and I love what you've done with it. Thanks for squeezing in a card before your trip, hope you are having a great time.
