Clean and Simple

Good morning and a happy weekend to you all.  I am scheduling this as I should be getting ready to drive down to London to see my two little grandsons, hope the roads are ok.  I am going for a week Dave is staying at home on cat duty!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Card Makin' Mamas and the theme for this fortnight is Clean and Simple.  Now I do not think these cards are easy at all, I know they look it and you would think they are as there is not much on them but that is the problem!  I know I have to hold my fingers back from adding embellishments.

I have used another of my Unity Stamp of the Week stamps and the matching sentiment comes with it.  I have added the sentiment to some cardstock and cut around it.  The image has been stamped directly on the card and coloured with Copics.  I added some black Stickles to the little hearts on the pizza - don't know if this allowed in CAS but I've done it so there!!. The ribbon, twine and button are from my stash.

Our sponsor this week is Meljen's Designs and please remember we are a card making challenge so we would love to see your CAS cards - pop over to the Challenge and have a look at what the others have come up.

Thanks for coming by today, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Take care xx
