Simple Teal

Happy Tuesday!

Firstly thank you all so much for the lovely birthday wishes yesterday!  I had a lovely day and did not craft at all (OH has been over so am now itching to get back into the craft room)  Yesterday morning was really funny as Mr Next Door ran into the craft room to make me a card for my  birthday having "left it out of the case" funnily that makes 4 years they have been forgotten in the rush to pack lol.  Ill take a picture of this modernist masterpiece and show it on Thursday!

Back to today this is one from my store cupboard of cards, most of the cards I have been making recently are realatively small and simple.  It is only when I look through the picture albums on my PC I realise a theme.  I promise next week I will do some large more complicated cards! Honest!

Today's card is no exception! a simple layered affair!



  1. Glad you had a lovely day. Your small and simple efforts a lovely, I'm happy to look at what you have in your storecupboard. Be wary of showing OH efforts, it may come back to bite your tail - maybe a new blog will be created !?!?
    Happy Tuesday

  6. John, you have such a good eye for choosing colour schemes. This card works really well. Love that it ties in with the "tree/ball" in the background. Janice x
