Hello Ladybug!

Wow has this ever been the longest 3 weeks.  Sassy Cheryl challenges are now the 1st and 3rd week of every month, but when a 3rd week pops in, it confuses me.  LOL.  I had my challenge card already to go last wee and more than one of my Sassy Sistahs were also ready.  But we are here today ready to go with a brand new challenge.  The theme for this one is Clean and Simple (CAS).

Clean and Simple cards are always a challenge for me.  My designs typically have clean lines.  I don't typically use a lot of flowers and lace and embellishments.  But a true CAS card has a design that is minimal and has typically has a lot of white space.  This is about as CAS as I could come up with.  I used one of Cheryl Grants newer images called Ladybug Tales.  The ladybug border is made with one of her rubber stamps from a set called Patients Secret.  I colored her up with my Copic markers.

Now if you really want a treat, check out all the cards my Design Sistahs came up with.  Who knew there were so many different ways to keep a card clean and simple.  They are so beautiful.  When I saw all of their creations, it made me ALMOST want to sit down and start over.  But I didn't because this card was made with my precious Granddaughter #2 in mind.  Her  name is Kaylee and I call her "my bug".  This card just looks like something she would love.  In fact I am sending it to her with a little note tucked inside.

Click right here and you will be taken to Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog.  Do click on each of the other designers and check out their creations.  While you are there, leave them a little love too.  Everyone likes to hear what you think of their creations.

Be sure and enter this new challenge.  If I can do CAS, you can too.  So grab a Sassy Cheryl image and there are some cute new ones in the store too.  Color it and fold it into a card size.  See how easy it will be.  Enter the challenge within the next two weeks for a chance to win a little shopping trip to Sassy Cheryl's store.  Go on now.  I will stop by your blog and leave you a bit of love too!  See you in a bit!
