Batting 1000

The Less is More challenge this week is
Anything CAS Goes


The Divas are trying for 1000 submissions this week.  So far it looks like they're over a quarter of the way there.  I'll be adding more cards for this challenge this week.  If you want to find lots of CAS inspiration, Less is More is the way to go.

And at SCS this week, the Clean and Simple challenge is leaves.  How 'bout that!  A two for one.

But wait, The Friday Mashup challenge this week is


  1. Create a project with an "Autumn" theme.
  2. Or Create a project using shades of "Yellow & Orange".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Autumn project using shades of Yellow & Orange".
In these busy times, being able to submit one card for three challenges is really nice! And I might add, it only took a few minutes to stamp this card.  I didn't time it, but I think 5 minutes tops.  Love this set!

Also, a few weeks ago, Mary gave us a wonderful Fall Color Challenge at SCS. The colors were Always Artichoke, So Saffron and Cajun Craze. Dessert was to make it a Fall or Thanksgiving card. I won't submit to this challenge because it's so far after the fact but I wanted you to know how much I liked this challenge Mary.
And it's beginning to feel like Fall here in NC.  I love Fall with it's beautiful colors and cooler temperatures.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  French Foliage
Ink:  Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze
Paper:  Very Vanilla

I haven't decided what to use as a sentiment yet.  I'll add that when the need arises.  I'm thinking Merci would be good.  What do you think?

Thanks for visiting today and I do love your comments.

Enjoy!

You know how much I love this set Bonnie - and I love what you've done with it here. It's certainly feeling autumnal here too even though we're on the other side of the world pretty much!

You really got some bang for your buck here, Bonnie! It's a great simple card, and you can add any sentiment you need, even a sympathy one. Glad you're getting some fall temps; us too!
