Fashionably Clean & Simple!

Don't the weeks just fly by!...It's time for another challenge at Fashionable Stamping and this time its 'Clean & Simple'   Once again we have our wonderful sponsor, Flonzcraft who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 voucher to spend in their online store.
For my piece I have used  Acid Drops & Whatnots stamp that was 'free' with a magazine a few weeks ago, just love the quotes with these images.
My image was coloured with Karismacolour pencils and the background was shaded with chalks - very simple.
The rest of the design team have some wonderful and varied inspiration for you, so please pop over here to take a look.
Just a short post today, but I would like to say I really do appreciate you visiting and all your lovely comments, especially as I have been such an absent visitor myself.........but ... more about  that later.

I am entering this in:
  Addicted to CAS - Summer
  Totally Papercrafts - Summer fun
  Crafting by Design - Celebrate Women
  Sentimental Sundays - One Layer


Have a great Sunday, whatever you are doing.
