So it's Penguin Day!

{ Mojo Monday #225 }
{ CAS-ual Fridays: Challenge CFC36 }
{ create: Square Card Challenge 01/19 }

Evening all! Hope your week is going well! I created a Clean and Simple card tonight. YAY! The photo is messed up because it is almost midnight here and I took the photo in my kitchen. Baaaaad. I made this card for my sweet friend Tara who invited two friends and I for Game Night last week. It was a night full of laughs, and of food and wine, poker and a game I never played before, Bananagrams? LOVED! Anyway, I wanted to give her this Thank You card for inviting us and having hosted such a fun night. I really needed some time with the girls!

{ The Design }

The Design: I used the Grand Calibur again. I had trouble with it the first time I used it. Tonight it was happy with me. I used my new EK Success Zig Zag punch. LOVE!!! My stamp is from (digging through the pile of mess on my desk....ah!) Studio G, and the butterflies are from a Hambly overlay.

{ My Inspiration }
I followed the Mojo Monday sketch very closely, with hardly any variation. I loved that the sketch had four slots. Each butterfly represents the four of us that night. CAS-ual Fridays wanted a clean and simple card using ONLY black and white, in honor of Penguin Day. Hee-Hee, too cute. Wish I had a penguin stamp!

Thanks for stopping by!!! Have to rush and link these up! I have like 9 minutes!!! See you again! And don't forget, it's CARDS Week at Color Combos Galore, so go play!

Happy Scrappin'!!!!
