Clean and simple

Hi all hope you all had a fab weekend and a pleasant week to come too. It's half term where I live so I have my son at home and hubby has taken the week off too and we plan on spending some quality time doing things as a family once we have done the few things we have to do, especially my son doing his homework, which will be a task in itself stopping him getting distracted talking on facebook and playing computer games!

My card I finished yesterday and it's for my sister in law who has a birthday later this month, mum saw the no more soggy paws and asked if she could have it and as it means more pennies in the coffers to buy rubber why would I say no?

For this one I used a sweet sassy girl and decided to challenge myself and use pink, I still find it a hard colour as it's not a colour I favour even in life very often usually flowers but rarely other times.I know I've not used much pink but I did try, I of course used my promarkers to colour with, The layout is for the sugar bowl challenge so clean and simple just my style and with such fab images from sugar nellie I don't think you need much else. The mirri card is from my stash and the striped papers is forever friends. The leaves are from a martha stewart punch and the flower recylced from a bought card mum gave me as she thought I could use it, see I've even managed to train mum to look for bits I can use.

Right now off to see it there are any other challenges to enter this cutie for and then I have another couple of posts to finish things off for, but first a challenge hunt.

These are the challenges I found to enter:-
the sugar bowl-layout and clean and simple option
the squirrel and the fox-one for the girls
pile it on-be happy
crafty Anne's -clean and simple
crafty catz-happy birthday
4 crafty chicks-marker it up
pixie dust studios-happy birthday
shelly's images-anything goes
southern girls -spots and stripes

I'm with you on the pink thing, but you've truly done a great job. The pink is not vibrant, but very subtle and colored so wonderfully. Love the accent of purples and her eyes are gorgeous! :)

Thank you SO much for playing along with us at The Squirrel & The Fox for our challenge.
Good luck to you and we hope you come back next week to play along again.
