Clean and Simple Monday

What a delightful surprise I had this morning when I opened my blog and saw that I was the winner on the Sentimental Sunday blog!  What a blessing!  This week's challenge #17 is Words that Inspire and just in case you don't have any inspiring words, Ann is giving a freebie but hurry, the download is good for one week only.
 
I have two CAS (Clean and Simple) creations for you today.  The first one is the first challenge in the Fall DT search on SCS.  Come along and play...someone has to win, right?
We were to use the theme "Teacher's Pet" and punches.  I think this is the fastest card I have made in my life!  So glad I have a photo to remember the moment...it will not likely happen again.  LOL
 

I embossed the base layer with a Spellbinders Long Rectangle die, the punched the apples from Bitty Box Basics dp, then added the sentiment from Teacher's Apple.  That's it!

Here's my card for today's CAS81 Krafty Turquoise color challenge and the Sentimental Sunday Words to Inspire challenge #17...Now don't you think this would "inspire" you to feel better?  ;-) I stamped the shoe, then clear embossed it, cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals.
 

Supplies:
Paper - PTI Kraft, Hawaiian Breeze, Neenah Solar White
Stamps - Impression Obsession
Ink - Versafine black, Versamark Turquoise Gem
Accessories - ribbon, EK Success border punch, button, dimensionals, glue dots

 
Pin It!
