Simple Joy and Photo Friday

Good morning! My card today is CAS {Clean and Simple}. Stacy and I got to spend some time at the Sizzix booth at the Southwest Summer Show. It wasn't very busy, so our demonstrator, Jill, let us play and play! I absolutely love the new, soon to be released Big Shot Pro {a 12" die cut/embossing machine}... wow! Hey, a girl can dream... right?!

I came home with a bag of my goodies that I cut out, embossed, etc. with both the Big Shot and the Big Shot Pro. When I first saw these adorable trees, I envisioned a very simple black mat over a white card base, so that is what I created. I only added the Joy sentiment, rhinestones and paper piercing, then I popped the image with foam tape. Super simple!

And since it's been a long time since I shared a photo on Photo Friday, here's a photo of Sabrina on her first day of 1st grade this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
