Hi Everyone! Another quick post today for our challenge at Creative Corner Challenges.

It’s been so busy with work and my son ill again (an infection in his finger this time and some visits to the doctor and chiropracter to help with a gait issue) that it’s amazing I’ve had time to craft this week!

Our challenge is Clean and Simple also known as CAS.  This is a challenge to use less and less embellishments and papers on your project.  The least amount the better.  This is always a challenge for me because I love to embellish.  However, I am thrilled with how this card turned out.  I used a sketch in the March/April issue of Papercrafts magazine  and its just a fabulous one.

I just used a couple of scraps of paper in my basket and the butterflies were sent to me in a swap.  They were regular corrugated cardboard and I misted them with my smooch spritzes!  The pearls are from my stash and the sentiment is K Andrew Designs

I hope you like it.  Please stop by the blog to see the other DT creations and also to join in on the challenge this week.

Happy Crafting and Have a wonderful weekend everyone!


Live in the Sunshine

Ah.  Sunshine.  I am living for the sunshine.  Winter’s here in Calgary are cold.  At least next week we leave for Cuba!  Todays ACAD was a simple one.  A great idea for any quick cards because this one took me NO time!  Using of course scraps and diecuts from my stash! Gotta love it.  I’m still trying to create as much as I can using stash stuff.  No new buying for awhile.

So here is the inspiration piece today

And here is my card

Nothing fancy about it, but a simple every day card.  Excuse the little bit of adhesive sticking out there, apparently I didn’t press my ribbon down hard enough!

Remember, the inspiration pieces can be found in A Card A Day by Papercrafts magazine which can be found at any bookstore or you can order it here.

I have a huge list of cards I need to make so I will be back with some more hopefully today.

BTW in case you were wondering..I’m doing a Biggest Loser challenge on FB so I was doing a Biggest Loser workout today and my butt kills! The fact that DH changed out my computer chair for one of those big balls is just adding to it! LOL

Thanks a Bunch

Well here it is…day 2 of my A Card a Day challenge or as it will be referred to from now on ACAD.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this one turned out.  I’m not posting the inspiration piece this time but I did come very close to what it is.  If you have the book, take a look.

I decided, and this was a hard one for me, to crack open my Basic Grey 6×6 pack..Eva.  I have about 10 BG packs, none of which have been opened yet and I’ve had them for ages.  I just loved the colors of this one.  The brad is AC adn the ribbon from my stash.  The sentiment is Stampin Up.  The rubon across the top is from my stash as well which I just added to a punched piece of scrap cardstock.  I don’t know what the sticker flower diecut is.  I found it in a basket and decided to build this card around that.  I hope you like it.  All the edges are inked with Memento Rich Cocoa.
