Clean and Simple!!!



























At last I think my mojo has returned and I have made two cards today using the same theme.  The new Hero Arts challenge includes three sketch challenges and I have used one of them to create these cards.  I have also managed to use up a few scraps as well, which is always a bonus!!

These cards are also eligible for the current CAS ual Friday challenge of a "Clean and Simple" card with bling added.





























We have a long holiday weekend in the UK for the Queen's Jubilee and don't you know it the weather has changed from bright and sunny to wet!!  There are loads of street parties planned and we are having a family barbecue on Tuesday, I think we are going to need umbrellas!!!

Have a fun week.

Gorgeous cards Sally. I'm watching a replay of the river parade right now. What an amazing spectacular. We have the day off today in NZ as it's the annual celebration of the Queen's Birthday so great to watch.
