Clean and Simple

Over at Artful Times the theme is Clean and Simple.


This was the first card I thought of.  The flowers are from an Inky Doodles set and the words are Sheena Douglass.  The colouring is with Promarkers and the word 'hello' in the background is embossed with white detail embossing powder using Versemark ink   I didn't have the correct red card to match so I coloured the edges of some white card with a matching Promarker for the mat and coloured white Card Candi in the same way.  I wondered if this was too fussy so I did a simpler version too.

 

I hope it is ok to enter two cards!The purple hearts are glazed with Glossy Accents.   Please pop over to Artful Times and see Von and Neet's fabulous work along with all the other brilliant entries.  Ooh I just have to tell you, my Daughter Sarah is expecting her first baby!  It is due on 1st November and I am so excited about becoming a Grandma!!  As many people have pointed out, I will be Granny Smith!  Its lucky I love that particular apple isn't it?  Thank you so much for visiting me. Your comments are much appreciated.  Take care xx

Two beautiful cards (of course it is ok to do two) - I love those flowers and think I have them myself - or something similar - but never even opened. Changing that now I have seen your lovely work. Thanks for joining us at Artful Times.

I was a Smith before being married (I think I have mentioned this before) so my mum was Granny Smith like you will be - so my son used to call her "Granny Apple". Congratulations on your soon to be change of status. You must post photos etc when the baby arrives.

Hugs, Neet xx
