A Happy Home

Monday is back!  In some ways, I welcome it this week as I feel like I’m still easing back into “real” life after vacation and unpacking!  Whew!  I got quite a bit of school shopping done over the weekend, so feeling good about that!  Just need to double check wardrobes to make sure I haven’t missed anything and shop for school bags!  School begins in two weeks!

Today, I’m sharing a Prickley Pear card using a combination of two of the Clearly Beautiful sets.

Stamps:  Prickley Pear (Spring Scalloped Circles, Sunflowers & Mini Hibiscus – sentiment only)

I played with clean lines again and came up with this design.  I used SU’s textured Rich Razzleberry & Old Olive cardstock for the main colors.  I added three small purple gemstones to the flowers in the vase and kept everything very simple.

Enjoy your Monday!

    Such gorgeous stamping, Melissa! I love the CAS design and love the tri colors on the vase of flowers. The tiny gems are such a great touch.
    We, too, start school in 2 weeks, and this weekend was filled with shopping for supplies and clothes. 🙂

    That Razzleberry is Rich! And the simple little vase of flowers and the lovely sentiment are perfect framed with it!
