Less is more 'A Touch of Red'

Evening all!

I've had a much needed day off work today and how did I spend it? Shopping and crafting of course, the cleaning can wait. Although if I'm being honest I did manage to do a load of washing, in between cards!! Lol!

Those who know my style of card know that I love the CAS look. So the new challenge blog 'Less is more' is perfect for me! I decided to join in on this weeks challenge which is 'A touch of red' and here is my card..

and I simply decorated the inside, also 'adding a touch of red'.

Now this card was so easy to do (in under 5 minutes) so I decided to replicate it, just with a different sentiment.

Two cards in under 15 minutes, that must be a record for me!!


CS: SU Whisper White, Basic Black

Paper: Scraps from my stash

Sentiment: SU Afterthoughts (Level 1 hostess set)

Stamps: Butterfly from SU 'Bliss' set (retired)

Tools: SU Scallop Border & Butterfly punches

Misc: SU adhesive pearls

I really enjoyed making these. I am on a roll at the moment, my mojo's in full flow. I am trying to use my new stash that I haven't got around to using yet and scraps of card & paper before I buy anything else. I don't see that lasting long though as I am in love with the new Springtime Vintage papers in the new SU mini catalogue, and I can see them being in my basket on my next order!

Well I'm off to have a lovely soak in the tub with a cuppa before I head off to bed for a good nights sleep ready for work in the morning!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
