Mr. & Mrs.

It's the first Monday of the month so you know what that means....it's time for a




This month's theme is "Clean and Simple". I'm not gonna lie, this one had me biting my nails. I am not a clean and simple kind of gal. I like to put "stuff" on my cards. This challenge was definitely a challenge. I guess that's what it's all about. It's good to go outside your comfort zone now and then.

I was in Fairy Tale mode this weekend. I had to DVR the wedding of William and Kate because I don't get up at 4:00 in the morning for anyone! After last week it sure felt good to unwind Saturday morning with my Mom and a cup of coffee. (sinus infection, ear infection, antibiotics...blah...blah...blah...rough week) The wedding was beautiful and her dress was gorgeous! That's where this card comes in. Lol




I'm sure the rest of the girls have some more "Clean and Simple", yet beautiful cards for you to see. If you arrived here from Joyce's blog you are in the right place. If not, head on over to Jak's blog and start at the beginning. You don't want to miss a thing! I have it on good authority that there will be 5 Mystery prizes up for grabs. You never know whose blog they will be hiding in, so don't forget to leave all the girls some love. Have fun!!


Here is the order of the hop:

Jak, Debbie, Toni, Meesh, Karen, Cathy, Heidy, Joyce, Jeni (you are here)
