Clean and Simple

That's the challenge this week on the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog, and may I just say they were music to my ears. I still have the 3 1/2 year old grandson here and on Sunday, we went to Birmingham and picked up our oldest daughter and our 16 year old grandaughter for a visit. It's hard to find crafting time with so many people here, and one of them needing constant supervision. However, I am enjoying their visit and life through the eyes of a 3 1/2 year old is so much fun.

Life doesn't get much simpler than sitting on a creek bank watching a cork bob waiting for a fish to bite, so this Summer Cutie called Catch Anything had to be my image. Isn't he the cutest thing with that big straw hat? Be sure to check him and the other selection of Summer Cuties at the Phindy's Place Store. I colored him with my Copics and cut the image out with my Spellbinders. The background paper was a scrap I had from the October Afternoon Spring Collection. I absolutely love this paper. The sentiment was one I created myself in Word Art, and I free handed cut the fish out around the sentiment.

Glad you stopped by and don't forget, I love hearing from you.
