Clean and Simple

This past month has just flown by, and it’s nearly time to start opening my advent calendar!  I’ve not even sneaked any choccies from it yet, probably helped by my wee stash of sweeties hidden in my craft storage to stave off those chocolate pangs!  Tee-hee!

Anyway, here is a clean and simple Magnolia card, using one of the new Christmas stamps.  The designer paper is from a Tone Finnanger collection and doesn’t really need anymore embellishing IMHO.  Quick and easy, just what you need for your Christmas cards =)

This image reminds me a little bit of Carl Larsson, the wonderful Swedish artist who is probably best known for his enchanting watercolours, which depict idyllic scenes of family life at the turn of the last century.  I am currently reading his autobiography which is a fascinating story!  Below is an example of his work – one of my favourites, though it’s hard to pick, they’re all just soooooo beautiful!

You can see some more examples here – I hope you’ll enjoy it!

Well, that’s all for now – am off to play with some new Tone Finnanger angel stamps I just got this morning – maybe next time I’ll show what I’ve done with them =)

Thanks for stopping by, and warm wishes to you all on this cold day!

    Your card is gorgeous and I can tell I have to stay longer in your blog. I have one of Carl Larrson’s books of water colors and love his art work. I will have to see if I can find his autobiography. I do love his work ever so much. Now I am off to look at some more of your art work. Just subscribed to your blog.
