Clean and Simple

After all the messy stuff yesterday, I was more than ready to try a clean and simple look for this card. I used papers from the new 6 x 6 paper stacks from the Dollies range by Craftwork Cards, love how all the elements came together so effortlessly. The banner strips are all in the stack, and I just hand cut a square and triangle for the house, and punched a heart. Sentiment is a Studio G dollar stamp.......

 I am in Surrey for a couple of days looking after Max and Milo. Max has a burning issue that is causing him a lot of worry (he tells me). He is very worried about getting a job when he is grown up - he just doesn't know where to start looking, and does he have to pay them to work as a scuba diver, or do they pay him? Such a lot of questions - he is only five, so no need to lose sleep over career matters just yet Max, just carry on with the swimming lessons, they may come in useful!

See you tomorrow  with my Letraset post - maybe a giveaway?.....

  10. I absolutely love your card. The little house would be perfect for a Realtors thank you note. Your boys are simply adorable. Isn't it fun being a Grandma?

  11. Lovely card.

    Bless Max - isn't it funny the things children worry about - I remember being about 6 and getting stressed about writing cheques and would anyone show me how to write a cheque when I was old enough to or would I automatically know how to do it LOL!!!

  12. Clean and simple is what I'm working on. I started out putting all the embellishments I could find, but now I like the simpler look. Thanks for the inspiration, Enfys!

    I hope you've had a chance to go to the gelli class I messaged you about on FB.
