Love U

Hello, my friends. Looks like we made it into the new year. The world didn't end, we're still standing, most of us are already back to work and ...sigh... my camera died. It was a birthday gift from Conan, so I'm not a happy bunny. He's promised me a replacement trinket and until then I'll use my phone to take photos for the blog and burden you with grainy pictures,

I'm kicking the year off with a simple card, with a big message. The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches #179 and for colours, I've turned to The Shabby Tea Room #147 "Monogram Madness". A couple of other challenges: Simon Says Stamp & Show "Totally Mad No Rules Tea Party" and There She Goes #188 "Sponging With Die Cuts".

My card looks like this:

The patterned papers are from First Edition's 8x8 pad. Just a single layer. The letter "U"  came from WMS Victorian Alphabet set, stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.

The stamp is by Nit Wits and I coloured him with SN markers. Then I fussy cut him and the flowers and adhered them all flat onto the die cut layer. For that I used Spellbinder's Labels 23 and sponged the cream CS with Tim Holtz's Antique Linen. 

Look! Flat as  pancake! No pop dots.

On the inside, I kept it super simple, i.e. empty! 

This is CAS my way and I know the purists will disagree. Have a great day my friends. I'm off to look at new cameras and hopefully will have a new toy to play with by next week. Thanks for dropping in and I'll see you tomorrow!
