One-Layer Note Cards

A big "Happy Monday Morning" to all of you! I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was good! I took my 13YO daughter clothes shopping over the weekend--it was time to replace the clothes and shoes in her spring/summer wardrobe that she's outgrown. Man, those kids of ours are just growing like weeds!! But of course it's all good :). Anyway, it wasn't all shopping all weekend; we had some family hang-out time, too, watching some Mythbusters one evening and the 2011 Winnie the Pooh movie another. It's adorable! We all loved it, proving that you can never be too old for Winnie the Pooh ;).

Well, today I'm sharing a collection of one-layer note cards


that I made for the latest DeNami Design challenge: to use at least one DeNami Design stamp to make a one-layer card. You can check out all of the challenge details over on the DeNami blog today.

These were quick and easy and are perfect for mailing. I used a couple of borders from the new Modern Borders cling stamp set, the "Just a Note" sentiment from the All-Occasion Sentiments stamp set, and the Mini Music Notes stamp. And all of the Versafine inks I used can be found in the DeNami store, too: Crimson Red, Majestic Blue, Spanish Moss, and Smoky Grey.

I hope you'll take some time to play along with the DeNami Theme Challenge this month! You have until Monday, April 30, to enter. I can't wait to see what you create. :)

Thanks for stopping by,
Emily

PS I'm entering this in
the Anything Goes Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp.

These OLC's are very inspiring. I need to make some quick cards for my kids to use as thank you notes, and I love what you did with just a border and a sentiment. Thanks for the inspiration, Emily!
