Simple Sunday part deux

Well hello there friends!
Whew, wasn't that a wild few days of new release goodness over at CA&Friends? I sure hope that you all can play along in the Rockin' Rebel contest... it's gonna be a cool one! :)

Last Sunday I shared a quick and easy card and I got to thinking afterwards that it could be fun to turn each Sunday's post into a 'Simple Sunday' theme. This works well with my schedule and how busy the weekends usually are for me. So from here on out every Sunday I'm going to share a card that takes 20 minutes or less to create... coloring included. Cute cards make me happy and if I can get them done quick I'm even happier! ;)

So here is this week's simple card... I used a 'new for me' Bugg digi from Tiddly Inks that my pal Donna totally enabled me into getting... she's notoriously good at doing that, LOL! :)
A big part of my quick cards is using images that don't require a lot of coloring and these cuties definitely fit the bill. The rest of the card comes completely from my scrap bags and what was around and on my desk. Having to use just what is within arms reach really narrows things down and speeds up the entire process for me.

I'm also entering it into the Tiddly Inks Challenge for Mother's Day cards this week. My mom loves her flowers and her gardens and of course I'm always convinced that they are the perfect homes for the little wee folk to reside in so she should get a kick out of this card. :)

Alrighty, time for me to get ready for work.
