Clean & Simple

Hello, I have a variety of cards to share with you today, with a Clean & Simple theme...

First...a different kind of style for me.  This card is for the current Practicing Creativity Challenge.  Their current challenge winner will get a chance to be a guest designer for them!  How fun would that be?  
Ingredients:  SU Very Vanilla Paper, October Afternoon Thrift Shop Paper, Ranger Distress Inks Antique Linen; Practicing Creativity For the Love of Dots Stamps; SU Baja Breeze Ink; PTI Buttons and Twine; Tattered Angels Spray

My next card is for this week's Clean & Simple layout.  It's been a few weeks since I played along...and this card will go to my little niece, Shelby, who turns 4 in a couple of weeks.
Ingredients:  SU Real Red Paper/Ink, Tempting Turqoise Ink/Button; PTI DSP, Birthday Stamps; & Twine

Finally, this is a card for my stash using a previous Clean & Simple layout.  I submitted this to CARDS Magazine for their "quote" cards...didn't get picked up for March...but guess what?  Another card did?  Happy Dance!
Ingredients:  SU Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Real Red and Old Olive Paper; SU Basic Black Ink; Art Impression Stamps; Basic Grey Oliver Paper; SU Whisper White Ribbon

And before I sign off, I wanted to give Ida a BIG shout out for recognizing me as a Beautiful Blogger. Check out here for my seven facts! I can't thank her enough for this. You know how you meet people and know that they are very genuine. Although I've never met Ida in person, I know she's a wonderful person...very pure and loving...I love her comments and chatting with her via email.  Thank you Ida!
