A Simple Thankyou

Good evening everyone and hope you are enjoying the weekend.

Just a quick post from me this evening before I sit down to watch "Dancing On Ice", as I managed to sneak in a couple of quick and simple challenge cards as well as my DT work.

For some time I haven't really had opportunity to play along with the Less Is More challenges, but this afternoon I decided I really must give it a go when I saw this week's fabulous sketch. 


I could immediately see a few possibilities, so I sat down and made a couple of simple thank you cards. Here are the results.



Stamps: (both cards) Unity Stamps "Insightful Meadows"; Penny Black sentiment from "Salutations" transparent set; 
Media: clear embossing, and distressed panels with TH distress inks ("Tumbled Glass" on first card, "Spun Sugar" on second card).

Challenges:

Card 1:
Totally Gorjuss #116 - Keep it Simple Silly
Kaboodle #103 - Thank You
CYDA #37 - Distressing

Card 2:
Stamptacular #149 - Diamonds or pearls
Hotshot #3 - Flowers (3rd entry)
Charisma #3 - Pretty In Pink
Sir Stampalot (January) - Monochromatic
Simon Says - Anything Goes (3rd entry)

That's all for now - have a great evening.
Hugs

  15. Two super CAS cards Pauline. A little bit different from you but they are so elegant.

    If you are anything like me CAS does rather scare me and I have to be very firs with myself with all the add ons, or rather lack of them.

    Thank you so much for joining our Monochromatic theme at Stampalot this month, good luck and hope we will see you again next month (new challenge Sunday).
