Oh so simple

Do you ever have an idea that seems too simple so you kinda blow off the idea, but the idea keeps coming back in your head? If not, it could just be my OCD acting up! Anyway, I have had an idea in my head for a week now and tonight I put it together.

The idea came when I picked up this stamp set from Stampin Up called "Have a Seat".
There was something about the bench stamp that just made me smile. How weird is that? A bench making me smile! 
I had a trio-frame set that I was not using. And I knew that I wanted to incorporate the stripe ribbon. 
On a piece of cream card stock I printed a saying that I really like from Sherry Dew..."If life were easy, it wouldn't be so hard." 
I then stamped the bench on the card stock. I cut the card stock to size and put it in the frame. Added the ribbon, and done. 5 minutes done
I think it is sweet. And you know what is funny? The bench and the saying have nothing to do with one another, but I love how it looks together! 
A nice little addition to my mantel.

Also, if you like this stamp set, you can head on over to Stampin Siblings and get the set for yourself!
