A Funkie Junkie CAS

From The Funkie Junkie

A new year and a new host for Our Creative Corner's challenge. Jocelyn Turner will be our host for January and she has challenged us to make a clean start for the new year. That's right - the challenge is to make a clean and simple (CAS) card. CAS might mean different things to different artists so unleash your personal CAS and show us what you got. You can share it with us over at the OCC and if you post to Splitcoast Stampers be sure to use OCCC in the keyword section.

Here's my try at CAS. I really, really had to restrain myself. I didn't do any stitching around the outer edge, didn't distress, and as badly as I wanted to, I didn't add any glittery snowflakes! I did add a touch of stickles on this cute snowman's heart and some Judi-Kins sparkly gold EP for his halo. The darling snowman is a digital image from Designed2Delight. The snowflake paper is Basic Grey Figgy Pudding with Creamy Caramel and gingham paper from Jo-Ann's. The little thank you stamp is SU's All Holidays with a Spellbinders die cut tag and an SU corduroy button.

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays with your familes and wish you all the best of God's blessings in 2010. Be sure to stop by the blogs of the rest of the OCC design team to see the beautiful creations they have to offer.

Update: While out surfing, I found these challenges that fit my card:
Creative Inspirations - Thank You card
Bee Crafty - Thank You card using a digital image

I love it, Linda!!! I think you restrained yourself as well as I did! Here's me - *snort* Every time I reached for my sponge I chanted, 'CAS * CAS * CAS...'

Have a marvelous week!
