Featured Less Simple

Today I am catching up with my 2 favorite challenges - One Layer Wednesday and Less is More.  Love these clean and simple challenges!




I am also joining in the Featured Stamper challenge over at SCS.  I had the pleasure of meeting Kim Hahn a few years ago at a stamp retreat.  She is one wild and crazy girl!  So fun~

I have been inspired by Susan, who is challenging herself to using all her stamps.  I am going to try to do the same thing... I am also getting rid of a ton of stamps.  [I have some stamps that I am wondering what was I thinking?]  Meanwhile, I looked in my stamp book and pulled out these 2 images.  The OLW challenge this week is making a masculine card.  This image reminds me of masculine, and I used an old acrylic pad for the water spritzing technique.



I adore Pinterst.  Have you checked it out? You have apply to get in, but once you are approved~  what fun!  I fell in love with the colors of this photo, and had to use them!


For the Less is More Challenge, they want it cut out.  This seems to be the latest trend going on out there in blogland, and I have to say I love the look!  Very simple, but gorgeous.  This also qualifies for my friend Karen's Outlaws Challenge -- a CAS Valentine.

That's it for me today.  I am working on purging my stuff!  I will be having a HUGE blow out sale -- I'm talking blow out prices too.  Look for it soon~
Thanks for stopping by~
