friends...

Hey There!

I'm here trying to channel my inner CAS without nestling a whole bunch of other goodies....


What's that?  Why yes, I did use a white card base instead of kraft {gasp!}.  Did you notice the sweet pink stitching?   I'm trying to stock up on Valentine's Day cards since I need to make up for the lack of Christmas cards that I sent out {or maybe that would be "didn't send out"}.

paper:  Echo Park
other:  PTI die, pink thread

I was inspired by the latest Runway Inspired Challenge:



Typing about Clean & Simple...did you catch the latest Flashback Friday?!


The challenge is to post your first Clean & Simple card!

We'd love for you to join in the fun!!!!

Fabulous card Amy!! Happy New Year to you and yours. Thank you so much for the card... I didn't get any out this year. My husband's Mom passed away in November and it has been busy getting her affairs in order etc.
Thinking about you!!
