CAS108 & CCCB45

Happy Monday, peeps!  I am desperately trying to find my mojo after our vacation---it’s coming back, but very slowly!  I thought the SCS Clean & Simple challenge 108 was a great one—the Great Outdoors, and I combined it with the City Crafters Challenge 45 --Nothing To It—no layers or embellishments allowed!  So here is my little CAS spring card:

I pulled out a real oldie for this one---this was probably one of the very first sets I bought from SU---Nature’s Seasonal Borders----stamped it in Stazon and did some coloring with a very decrepit blender pen, hence the “rustic” look of it!  I added a sentiment from PTI’s Wreath for All Seasons.  Hopefully it will be a harbinger of warmer weather to come---- it’s looking really gray outside my window today!

And I am sure you’d love to see some Cassidy pix---she got her first tooth yesterday, but it will be a while before I’ll get a shot of that!  I don’t think I’ve shared these yet (forgive me if I have), but how about some sweetness from Valentine’s?

Ooooooohhhhhh, GOODNESS! SHE is an ANGEL! {ADORABLE!!!} THERE'S your MOJO! heh heh

I'm SUCH a fan of busting out an old FAVORITE to get a job done! THAT'S WHY WE GOT STARTED TO BEGIN WITH! I fondly recall the days when it was just about "having a Spring stamp" "having a good St. Patty's Day stamp..." etc. AND that did ya, for YEARS! Anywhoo, enough of THAT. YOU rock! This is gorgeous and WONDERFUL for your requirements!

Hi! Cassidy is adorable. Did she go with you?
I love the card. I have some of those little stamps and never use them. I love them and the way you put them together. I'll have to try one like yours.
