Good morning
It's the weekend again..... at last!
I have to make a load of cards over the next few days so decided to make a couple of super simple computer generated cards. It's my brother Stephen's birthday tomorrow and he hates fussy cards. He likes very plain less is more and in his case he likes MUCH less is more lol! I recently did him some vinyl cuts for his bathroom of the Gecko from LAB which he loved so I made this very simple small card using a clipart, simple greeting and a couple of small gems.
The second card I made is for someone who loves chocolate, I chose to stay with just computer graphics and found a chocolate digital download (from http://jonigray.blogspot.com although this download has expired unfortunately. The site is well worth a visit though as she is a very talented lady and there are some gorgeous digital downloads freebies on her site) and printed on to photo glossy ( although you can't tell it's glossy from the photo!just a bit of flash at the bottom sorry for that!)just a computer greeting and I was done.
I used to make a lot of computer generated cards when I started making cards about 10 years ago before getting my Cricut and all the other wonderful tools you can get nowadays. So every now and again you will probably see some of thes quick and easy cards appearing on here!
Have a great weeekend everyone looks like we might have some sunshine here according to the weather forecast! :)

Julie these are super. I quite often like the super simple ones s they can be just as effective. I love both but can honestly say that the choccy one is calling me. (Can't wait to hear where the image came from).

Oh Julie, I'm so glad to see you go simple at times too - somehow, it's a nice change and amazing what can be found on the computer. Great cards!
