It's Clean and Simple at Allsorts...


Good morning to you all, we are headed to Stratford, London today to visit the Lego shop for Thomas' birthday (it's on Monday). I expect to be sitting down for much of the day (drinking nice coffee hopefully) while the boys and their dad decide what they are going to spend their cash on ;-) We're going to have tea at TGI Fridays - Thomas' choice. I am going to sneak a cake in and ask them to bring it out at the end of the meal so we can sing happy birthday.

It's time for a new challenge at Allsorts challenge blog, our first of 2013! Our theme this week is hosted by the lovely Emma and is Clean and Simple (CAS). Now I want 2013 to be the year where I crack CAS cards as I love them when made by other people but when making them myself find them sooooo hard, I find all the blank space intimidating.

So onto my DT card, I have used a fab image/sentiment set from Digistamp Boutique. I have chosen to use the coloured image supplied rather than colour my own (yep, lazy I know). Without any colouring to do the card took no time at all to put together. I've just added some Stardust Stickles to the image and used a border punch down the side of the card...


Supplies:
Image/sentiment - from the Simply for Valentines A4 set from Digistamp Boutique
Other - Fiskars Apron Lace border punch, Tim Holtz pink cardstock, brown chalk inkpad, Stardust Stickles

Please do come and join us over at Allsorts this week for our challenge x

 
I would like to enter my CAS card into the following challenges:

  2. Sounds like a perfect day out Sarah and will accommodate everyone.

    Like you and Helene, the while space scares me as well, it's always so tempting to think it needs something else. But I think you have got the balance perfect.
