Clean and Simple at Top Tip Tuesday

Hello!  Long time no see :-)

I hope you had a great New Year!  Are you getting used to writing 2014 yet?  I'm still at the think about it before writing stage!

Right onto today's card for Top Tip Tuesday which is 

Clean and Simple

I will admit to New Year Blues when making this one, and my mojo is still obviously nursing her New Years Eve hangover...

I remembered seeing something quite cool with brads a while ago, I can't remember where or when though, so while I was tiding my craft stash up (OK... I'll admit, I wasn't tiding, I was trying to find something I'd lost!)  I found a pot of the things, and some circle punches and inspiration struck!!

I desperately need to send some Thank You cards and this was pretty quick and easy, once I'd stopped faffing and got on with it!  I can see a little production line of these being turned out!  Actually, as I'm typing this, wouldn't it be cool to make 6 of these and a little gift box to put them in... oooh... I think my mojo has woken up!!

Anyway, enough with the blah blah blah... here's my card

Oh, and if the bottom right brad looks a bit sparkly, it's because it is!  It seemed that I only had 5 brown brads and as I'd already punched the holes had to find something that toned in, fortunately I had one (thank goodness I'd not punched 7 holes!) dark gold sparkly brad.

A few circles punched out of corrugated card here and there and a typewriter style stamp and it was finished... don't know why I was faffing so much!!

Please can I enter the following challenges
(I'll add these later - I need to get to work now!!)

Thanks for stopping by... hopefully now my Mojo is up and running there will be more to share soon
