I have sadly not been posting much lately so decided to do a quick entry this am. I have a couple CAS cards to share and a tiny bit of news.

If you know me at all, you know my style of stamping is almost always CAS.  I love letting the stamp take center stage.  Although I love embellishments, I tend to keep them at a minimum.  I like having a clean card, with open spaces.

I have been following the SCS clean and simple challenges they have every Monday for quite some time.  Recently I noticed an extra challenge posted on their thread above just the weekly challenge.  They were looking for a new Summer CAS Design Team.  The first challenge was to make fashion statement with flowers on a card.  I entered this card, and actually made it to the semi-finals!

I had bought the new Tim Holtz Distress markers and wanted to play with them.  So I used those and created this quick card for the contest.
I did not make it past the semifinals in this contest, but felt very honored to get that far.  My bit of news however, is at the Design Team Reveal Party for the 3 new Design Team Members, I found out that I was listed as being one of the Guest Designers sometime this summer!  I was so excited!  So, I will keep you posted when I find out what week is my turn.

This week, the new CAS Monday challenge was to create a card using Letters. I did not have much time after work last night and have a really rotten cold and cough, but decided to make a quick card....ended up being a mini set of cards...I LOVE mimi cards!  Here is my set of cards using a LETTERS theme.

I used the heart stamp from SU "Floral Fillers", and a random old "U" from an alphabet set I have had forever.  I made one each of the 2011 to 2013 SU " in color"  colors....Island Indigo, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, and Lucky Limeade.  I added a pearl in the corner of each heart, rounded the corners and there you have it!  Would be a fun set to give as a hostess gift or something.

Hope you have a wonderful week with time to play....I think we all wish for that!  Seems to center and relax me more than anything else.

God Bless..............Tammie
