an old-fashioned hello...

Be sure to check out my The Craft's Meow Blog Hop post...there are 2 give-a-ways!

Hello and Welcome to the EAD Designs Blog Hop!
{it officially starts at 7 am pacific}

You should have arrived here from Lauren's, our Super February Guest Designer's blog


If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the EAD Designs blog.  Remember, every week there is free vinyl to one lucky hopper!

Today I have a v-e-r-y clean & simple card for you:



The sentiment is from the Hero Arts set, Just Saying Hi.

For those of you that have been following me for a while know that I started out strictly CAS...like I'm talking about Fabriano cards and stamps only...no patterned paper {what the heck?}.  Which reminds me I need to ink up some of my gazillion Fabrianos...It's fun to go back to my roots...how about you?  Has your style changed much?

My color inspiration comes from The Play Date Cafe:


It totally reminds me of the 80's...

Okay, now hop on over to the FAB Candance's blog:  Scrappin' 2 Little Princesses

P.S.  Can I get some feedback on the font size...too big?  Just right?  I typically use blogger's 'normal' but this is 'large'.

  5. Just brilliant Amy, I love those old fashioned telephones, I would love one for the home ;0)
    Love your CAS style here, I'm drawn to all that white space....blogging has helped me to feel comfortable leaving white space too!
    Font looks great, makes reading it on my iPad easier :0)
