Gratefully Clean and Simple


Drats...I really wanted to try to do the Papertrey Blog Hop but forgot it had to be posted by 7:55 p.m. There's always next month!

I took some homemade cookies to my 92 yr. old neighbor and spent about an hour just visiting with her. She had a severe stroke about a year ago and communication is slow but she still has her wry sense of humor and loves chocolate chip cookies. So actually, this card sums up how I'm feeling...grateful that I recovered from my "brain attack", grateful that I can walk, and talk and do the things I love.

This card is totally Papertrey. The leaf is from last year's fall set, First Fruits. I used three colors of ink to achieve the look of the leaf. I first inked it in Aqua Mist, then Ocean Tides, then lightly with Chocolate Chip. The base is Ocean Tides. I sponged the edges of the base and the sentiment panel with Chai. The image panel is popped up on dimensionals.

Gratefully,
Pin It!
