WOYWW, CAS and Blog Candy

If you're looking for the May Arts/Graphic Blog Week post, please scroll down one.

We've been on vacation visiting our family up north for a week.  I must say, little ones are so much fun and ACTIVE.  I've got bruises from playing baseball every night but it was worth it.  I've been buried under laundry and few other things since we got back so this is the first chance I had to get in the studio and "play".

It's time for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW159) over at Julia's.  If you haven't dropped in, you should...there are some really nice people there!  The workdesk isn't too busy..yet.  I have the makings of a flower I used ....


on this card for the Clean and Simple Challenge (CAS175) on SplitcoastStampers.  The challenge this week is an inspiration challenge based on a bathing suit.  You can see it at the link.  Here's my take on the suit.  Black and white with a bit of ruffle in my flower.

Ink - Versafine
Cardstock - Neenah Solar White
Other - May Arts Black Silk Ribbon; plastic flat back bling; white fabric; candle; glue dots

 I didn't forget that today is the day I promised to draw for the monthly blog candy.

Happy WOYWW! I follow you by google reader and I am clueless as to the die! I have seen it before but my memory is not that great. Love your card and that stamp set. Very creative using the glasses and cupcakes! Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Vickie #51

I haven't been able to get into my room to "play" for a very long time now and I'm sure missing it. I also haven't had much time for checking in or commenting on galleries or blogs either :(
Your CAS black and white card is gorgeous - love that flower. Have a great day.
