clean & simple

I found this fantastic blog, Clean & Simple Stamping, and I'm already addicted to it - it's very much my style these days. Today's card comes from this sketch, which was soooo easy to whip up in no time. I hope you all like it. I'm using Perennial Favorites, which is another retiring set this summer. Booo.

I'm potty training my 2-year-old this week, so if I'm quiet and out of sight, that is why. Today was our first day and only one accident! Crazy. After dinner we braved the outdoors and went to the park and played outside for a couple hours and he stayed dry - woohoo! We'll see how the rest of the week goes, but I'm definitely coming back here to post Kristina's color challenge because I just can't miss those.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Karen,
    I love your blog - love your style in scrappin and especially these clean/simple, but yet really awesome cards!!!.

    Any potty training tips, let me know my 3 year old son (May 3rd) is still giving me headaches....he just won't even try.

    Good luck with your training attempts.
