Keeping it Simple


Hi There! What a week-end I have had so far. We had a family reunion for my hubbie’s side of the family. So lots of cousins and aunts & uncles & grand-parents, amazing food and wine and just a lot of fun. This morning, my eldest son who is 11, took us all sailing on a Hunter. Some of you might remember that we enrolled him in a Sailing School this Summer. Well, he is totally in love with sailing. He had to take practical and theoretical exams and after he wrote the Level 1, the trainers encouraged him to try the Level 2. Well, he passed both with flying colors. Am I ever proud of him. Today, it was a little strange to have him be the one in charge. He was telling us all what to do and had to keep shouting “MUM! Watch out for the boom!” I nearly got whacked a couple of times! LOL!

Now, I am just relaxing a little. I have a banana loaf in the oven and we’re going to have it for tea. I thought I would show you this really simple card that I made a little while back and never have shown on my blog. I challenged myself to create a card using no designer paper and one that I could complete in 15 minutes. This is what I came up with. I created the the embossing with my Swiss Dots folder and the lines were made with my Score-Pal. The leaf motif is from Sweet ‘n Sassy Beautiful Borders set and the sentiment is from the Light of the World Set. The ink is Papertrey fresh snow that is stamped on SU Kraft paper.

Not my usual style but I want to have cards on hand that will suit other tastes as well.

Just wanted to mention that Suzanne and my friend Jacque have amazing Hallowe’en Blog candies right now and that there is a fun Magnolia-licous challenge going on. Check it out!

I also want to thank Tanny for this lovely award. I appreciate it sweetie!
