Wow time is going so fast it'll soon be Christmas cards made so far 22 only 78 left haha.
It's a new challenge over at Bows & Berries although it's an easy challenge I found it quite hard just where do you stop! so  the challenge is CLEAN AND SIMPLE thats it really ........
Friday, September 30, 2011Challenge #13- Clean and Simple

CAS can be easier for some then others... he he...

Let's give it a try!
Found a quote explaining it just in case you are unsure at all...


Clean And Simple
uncluttered, lots of open space, one clear focal point
You can have color, pattern, embellishments and even layers...
Your style can be graphic, fun, elegant or even vintage...
It comes down to the design...
Clean And Simple"

As usual, you don't have to use a Bows and Berries Digital Stamp, but we love to see them!!! There is always the freebie on the sidebar for you to use if you like!!

If you use the code BB25 at the shop checkout it will get you 25% off all digis!!

It's our last day of the October Freebie, so don't forget to grab the 'Frog Prince' while you can and come back tomorrow for a more festive freebie!!

Now for my card I hope you like it I have used "Elfie" I think he's so cute.

for this card I have used a diamond card, cuttlebug embossing Swiss Dots folder, image from B&B, gems from Dovecraft and both Copics for skin tones & Promarkers for main colouring.

places to be seen: - Anything Goes - Anything Goes - Anything Goes - Fancy Folds - Go Dotty - CAS - always anything goes - Anything Goes - Use a Digi - Quite White - Anything Goes - Anything Goes

We was lucky enough to have the grand children for the night woo hoo just can't wait to find out when it will happen again. I got some lovely stuff too my son bought me a hoody jumper which is very warm, Laura & Taylor bought me some lovely crafty stuff from Top Town (Kanban kit cards, Chipboard flowers, birds etc.) and Vix made me some rather yummy choccies which taste lovely and she also bought me a ticket to go see Physic Sally. My birthday tea comprised of a Maccies, walk around the boating lake (the little ones wanted us to get a boat from the Island to which they are tied up to in the middle of the lake so Nannie could have a boat ride for her birthday.) then on to meet up with Grandad who was playing Squash & missed it all. I would like to share with you a couple of lovely cards that had been made from 2 of my crafting buddies.

My non VIRTUAL card from Kate
