Something new... CAS

Welcome my friends.  I've tried something I almost never do... Clean and Simple (CAS).  I really am most impressed with the creators who can make a card with little 'extras' and make it look so FABulous!!  I've never had that ability, but I think I'm going to try it a bit more.  I had a lot of fun doing this one.  And I even bough a couple of stamp sets from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  I apologize for the photo, but I didn't quite get the background behind the card right.  I'll try it again, and if I succeed, I'll replace this one.

Ta-da!!  I did kinda like how this turned out which gives me some incentive to try the CAS style again.  And if you're anything like me always thinkin' "I just can't do that", perhaps it'll give you some inspiration too.  I hope so.  But I don't like the totally dark background... do you??  However... I'm never going to give up my copics and coloring.  I love to color!!  : )

Great job on the CAS style. I like how you stamped the man down in the corner and kept the tag for the sentiment. Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!


I know exactly what you mean about CAS style, I love watching people's blogs with CAS cards, but it's still a new style for me. You did a great job with this one, I really like this sentiment. Thank you for joining us at the Celebrate the Occasion challenge and hope to see you back again.
