Clean and Simple Monday

Life is slowly returning to some semblence of whatever "normal" used to there really such a thing?  What is "normal" anyway?  If you know...please tell me.

At any rate, DH is out of town so that means I can eat when I'm hungry, shop with a friend without an eye on the clock, and not worry about preparing dinner daily.  I actually enjoy that part but a break now and then is delightful too.

I told you that I love the colors in the Jones Design Company giveaway post.  So when I saw the Featured Stamper challenge on SCS this week honoring Corie Foster, I knew right away what colors I wanted to use.  Here's the card I cased from Corie's gallery

Stamps - Papertrey Damask Designs, Simple Somethings
Paper - Neenah, SU
Ribbon - grosgrain


The SCS Clean and Simple Challenge is "Outdoors" .  Now there's a wide open field of ideas for you.  I always need card for guys and they're so hard sometimes. 

I decided to go one layer and grabbed a Fabriano notecard, some unmounted rubber and a Memento Tuxedo brown ink pad and done...I got those images in a grab bag years ago from Cornish Heritage Farms so I have no idea who made them.

Thanks much for dropping your life "normal"?

Pin It!

Hi Charlene

Two wonderful cards! The colour combo on the first one is so striking.

It's the normality of my life that I love so much. Just a normal Mum with a normal crazy life with kids. I wouldn't swap it for all the fame and fortune in the world.

I love the black and white with yellow... amazing how so many colours go well with black and white. Lovely papers.

The male card is striking in it's black and white glory as well.
