Me.... CAS.... Well I'll try....

Hiya,

Just a quick post cos I've just realised I'm about to miss the deadline over at Less is More.... They're on a mission to get 1000 entries for their Anything CAS Goes and as the challenge at Fab 'n' Funky is "A Hard Theme" that is anything you find hard to do I really thought I'd better give it a go.... Besides there's been some amazing inspiration from Lisa and Sally's blogs so I just had to.

So I did.... In fact I had several goes.... And I hated them all! But I was determined to make one that I liked... or at least didn't hate! and so now I can show you this....


Apologies for the rubbish piccie but it's dark now so artificial lighting :-( I'll try to improve it tomorrow....

The stamp is a forever Friends one and I've coloured it with watercolour pencils - another thing I don't do! The sentiment is from Clare Curd's It's a Man's World and then a couple of gems cos I just couldn't bear to leave it :-)

Challenges:
Less is More - Anything CAS Goes
Fab 'n' Funky - A Hard Theme

Right! I'd better go and link it up! I'd love to hear what you think - please be honest!!!

Love 'n' hugs,

Well, I appreciate you, because your post is very helpful the way of using less things in card, which makes beautiful and more attractive. All are very simple and can 't wait to make one for myself.
