Too clean? Too simple?

Very Understanding Hubby needed me to make a whip up a 'quick' Thank You card for his Mum, yesterday.

Of course, when a I could have done with Sweet Cheeks taking a nice long afternoon nap to free me up for an hour or so, he point blank refused. Instead preferring an afternoon of hide and seek. Never work with children or animals!

So I whipped this little number up whilst Sweet Cheeks hid his head in the same place under the duvet each time it was his turn. If he couldn't see me, I couldn't see him! ;)

It looks better in real life, I just couldn't get a good picture this morning. And the jury is still out as to whether this is too clean and simple.

I'm going to enter:

Allsorts: Thank You

Cute Card Thursday: Thank You

Phindy's Place: Thank You

Well that's it from me this morning, it sounds like there are a herd of elephants upstairs, so I can only imagine what the boys are getting up to. No doubt it will involve some kind of tidying up for me...!

This is just lovely - nothing to distract from the sentiment, just a gorgeous, classy card. Love it! xx

Debbie said...

I love its simplicity, perfect for a thank you card. I am making them at the mo, to say thank you for all my Birthday gifts and mine are simple too. I was given a Stamper magazine that had a cup and tea bag cling stamp on the front and I have used that...worked well after my Afternoon Tea Party!! Hello to SC.

no way too clean or simple, i absolutely love it! Yummy yummy.

Good on sweet cheeks - Zac has the same theory and often hides his head behind a book or a cushion as I obviously can't see him then!

No such thing as too clean and simple! This is lovely. Don't you just love the hide and seek though - grandchildren play it every time they come to visit and squeal even when discovering the obvious. Gotta love that innocence! ~chris
