Keeping it simple. Really.

This week threw quite a few things at me - the biggest one being that I'm starting back at working on Monday. As you can imagine I've been mad busy trying to sort things out and amongst other things I have needed to make a sad decision to step down from quite a few design teams. Sundays With Crissy is amongst them so that is my last card for them. :(

The theme for August is KISS - Keep It Simple, Sweetie.
You see, I made an honest, no embellies-involved, one layer card!!
The image is called Forget Me Not and I just printed it on kraft base along with a sentiment by Raindrop Echo Designs. All I really did then was to colour the image with Faber-Castell Polychromos and Caran D'Ache Swisscolor pencils.:)
Thanks a million for popping by and happy crafting!!
Hugs

Hi Annika,

This card is gorgeous! :) See, you're good at CAS also! I'm sorry to hear about you stepping down from the DT...and sorry-er to hear you're going back to work... work is tiring and stressful and no one likes it.
But I wish you fast re-accommodating with your new schedule and hardly wait to see more of your creations!

Hugs,
Laura

Hi Annika, simple but sweet but with your colouring you really don't need anything else. I'm starting work again in a week so I know how you feel, my time is going to be scarce as well :(

Hi Annika!
This came out really nice. A good coloring job needs little embellishing. :-)
I was a bit sad to hear about you going back to work, I'll miss seeing your gorgeous creations but do hope you won't give it up entirely cos that would be a real shame.
ON a positive note, I hope your job is a fun one, I know you enjoyed your job in the past and I hope this one will be like it.
Always wishing you the best
Hugs,
Dorcas

This is beautiful, Annika! Really, such an impact it has!

I hope your return to work is a good one (and fun one as Dorcas mentioned). I hope you're still sticking around at Whimsy, though?? Gosh I hope so!

Good luck with everything! Remember to....breathe :)

I absolutely LOVE your work, especially your Copic cards. I am going back to work myself in a few weeks so I know what that is going to do for my crafting :-( I hope it doesn't affect yours too much. Keep up the excellent work.
