Clean and Simple


I like the way this turned out - I am not very good at clean and simple cards, always wanting to add just one more flower/button/brad.....the balloons were cut from Create a Critter, first in black for the strings, then in different pattern papers. The window box is a memory box die....



sentiment is one of my favourite studio G dollar stamps, I love the font.....



the first balloon is flat on the card, everything else was popped up.......



We are off to London for the weekend to see all the kids before we do the long haul back to the USA in a few days time. I was putting out my dressing gown (robe) ready to pack, and smiling as I remembered a conversation with Max last time we saw him
I don't like your pink dressing gown Ma, he announced
Don't you? Well pink is for girls really isn't it?
Don't be silly Ma, you're not a girl

Too true Max, so very very true....at what age does diplomacy kick in?

Lovely card En. You do everything well.
I love comments from small children. They are so sure they know what they're talking about. I don't think diplomacy kicks in til' the teen years with some and never with others. lol Enjoy your time with the kids, see ya on the other side. Travel carefully, hugs, Jess

Out of the mouth's of babes...right. Really like your simple card. Sometimes simple is just what is needed and may be all time allows for. We all need to ber reminded that simple is still ok. TFS.
