Clean and Simple

Amazing that anything called 'clean and simple' could come out of my stamping room which is very messy and chaotic! But I managed to clear a tiny corner and make these two cards. The first one is stamped with CTMH Bamboo ink for the trellis, and then the vine and grapes ( from CTMH Bon Appetite set) were done in Bamboo also. I used CTMH chalks on the vine, which gives the colors a softness. The second card has the three dimensional flowers, but they are simple to make. Each is just three small flowers held together with a tiny brad and scrunched together. The leaves are from the SU! Bird punch. All cardstock is CTMH.
Not much time for paper play these past few days. The big party for my oldest was a great success. Many of his friends stopped by and there was plenty of food. I got behind on my preparations and was saved by my BFF. What would I do without her??!

The last evening tonight before Don returns to Japan for another year. I have made enough sauce, meatballs, sausage, manicotti for a small village. DH just shakes his head. He loves leftovers, thank goodness.

Hope your summer is as beautiful as mine right now,
