Leafy layout...

This is another quick card made with unbranded dies - both the card front and the leafy sprig. Super simple, super quick!

Here you can see that I have glued down just the stem of my leafy sprig to give it a little added dimension.

I also added a couple of tiny pearls to dress up my stamped sentiment, which was a freebie from a magazine subscription.

I love when a card comes together this quickly. This one was particularly fast because I have left the inside blank so that I can write a personal note.

We are now in Springfield, Illinois, and enjoying all of the tributes to Abraham Lincoln here. So far we have toured the Lincoln Museum, the Lincoln Library, Union Depot (where he gave a final address before heading to the presidency in Washington, D.C., and where his body was returned after he was assassinated), the current State Capitol building, Lincoln's tomb and the Lincoln Memorial Gardens. Tomorrow we will tour the old State Capitol, Lincoln's home and a couple of other sites.

We are also staying in a wonderful campground that has all the amenities we like to have (like a laundry and clean showers!).

I hope you are having a great week wherever you are. Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Beautiful die cuts, and love the simplicity of the sigle leaf stem in the focal point. Love Springfield IL. - lots of history.
