CAS125, LIM Sketch 2


Happy Monday!  After a very busy weekend, I am having trouble getting back into my stamping groove….so bear with me!  Today’s Christmas card uses the SCS CAS125 color challenge of Red, White and Black, and the sketch from Less is More:

LIM sketch 2


This card really doesn’t do much for me, but it is another one to add to my stash for December, so I guess that is a plus!  I think I should have added some glitter or something.  Anyway, here’s a little smile for you:


Hopefully when she’s able to REALLY use the vacuum, she’ll still be smiling!

Wee Details:

  • Stamps:  Tree Trimmings, Come to Bethlehem
  • Paper:  WW, Real Red Prints DP
  • Ink:  Real Red, Stazon
  • Acc:  1” Circle Punch, Baker’s twine, Dimensionals

Well, LeAnne, if it doesn't do much for you, can I have it? LOL! I think this is spectacular! Such a clever use of the sketch, and I love that the ornaments are different lengths instead of being all lined up. Beautiful job!

Renee said...

Love the card and the way you did the ornaments..I would have never thought of that!

What a lovely C&S Christmas card! I love how Miss Cass is now making faces for the camera! I love the pose from the other day where she's wearing a blue striped top. She's such a dollbaby!!

I love this card, I do think that Glitter would look good... Glitter on cards is like Bacon on food.... you just can't have to much. LOL


Jess said...

love the card, was just thinking this morning that I should crack out this set for the LIM challenge. Your little one is adorable, my nephew loves to 'vacuum' too, he makes the sounds and everything

Martha said...


I am loving the simplicity of this and the bakers twine which also matches the color choice. Simple is best! Such a scrunched smile on Miss Cassidy! I remember my daughter doing one of those for her Kindergarten school photo. It is my absolute fave.

Thanks for sharing. Love, Martha

Your Christmas card is a great interpretation of the sketch LeAnne - I love the hanging decorations. I wonder if I might enjoy hoovering more if mine had a cute face on it...?!

Looks really good even if you don't lurve it - that can happen. The red and sketch works so well on a Christmas card!
