So it is yet another National Scrapbook Weekend. I have a great interest in making lovely scrapbook pages; I take many photos that fill up my computer hard drive, Dropbox, Snapfish, etc. But there is always something especially daunting to me about creating scrapbooks. I want a really large block of time to do it, and I just don’t have that in my life right now! So cardmaking is really for me! I like the small format of a card, I like the fact that I can give them to friends and family, and I really like to donate as many cards as I can to Operation Write Home.
There are a few of us who make cards for Operation Write Home who call ourselves “Rebels with a Cause” during National Scrapbooking Day. We rebel and make cards instead of scrapbook pages. Yep, that’s pretty serious stuff! So this year, my rebel card is this birthday card. I absolutely love the simplicity of this sketch: Sketch 291 from Clean & Simple Stamping. I’d like to use this one some more! I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder so that it stood out a bit more. Thanks for visiting today and observing my rebellious side!

Vey nice design work Yvonne. I really love how those 3 little arrows direct the ye straight to your focal point. Such a pretty and soothing color combo too.
