Clean and Simple for Tuesday

It's a fairly clean and simple card for today.  The simple clean sketch is from this week's challenge over at The Paper Players.  I moved the matted section to the left in order to reveal more of the embossing.  Except for the colouring, this would be a great card for a workshop - simple, quick and easy.

I've finally used some of the new paper - I am loving these two new colours together (Pool Party and Island Indigo).  The chair is also from a new set called "Cherish Friendship".

It looks like we're in for more rain this evening.  I walked on the lawn this afternoon and it's still moist from the previous numerous days of rain.....and the mushrooms are starting to grow.

Ah well - counting down the days of school - that's something to look forward too.  I hope you have something to look forward to also.  Thanks for stopping by!  Joan
