Decluttering my Life

I haven't done much cardmaking or blogging lately because I have been busy decluttering my life!  If you are familiar with the Fly Lady, you will know what I mean when I say that I am a 2-week old Fly Baby! I am loving every minute of it and look forward to each day now because I know that I will be doing something to simplify my life.  It's so nice to finally feel like I am accomplishing getting a clean, clutter-free house.  If you aren't familiar with the Fly Lady, I encourage you to visit her website at!

Since I have had less time to craft, I have been making cards that are on the simple side more often. I'm loving that too!  It's much more relaxing for me.  Today's card uses the sketch at Splitcoaststampers and the color combination at Stampin' Royalty.
I turned the sketch sideways and used the bicycle stamp from one of the My Paper Pumpkin kits.
For my background, I sponged the colors to make a kind of sunset sky and a road for the bikes.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy! The sentiment is from the last My Paper Pumpkin Kit, Wahoo.  :)
