Loved this Clean & Simple color challenge at Splitcoaststampers yesterday, so I played along.  I’ve been needing to get a good CAS design to mass produce some Christmas cards.  Well I found this sketch over on the Clean and Simple Stamping blog and fell in love with it.  Even hubby pretended to like this one more than most.  It must be good!  Or maybe it’s just the red.  Men have such a thing for red. 

It will be fun to change the colors up and substitute different patterned papers with this sketch.  That should give each card a little bit of uniqueness, and keep it more interesting for the person making the cards.  (I have a hard time with mass production.)

Just a quick post today.  Hope your week is off to a great start.  Happy Crafting!

    I had to laugh when I read your post because if I make a card and it’s blue my husband loves it no matter what the image or occasion. However, if I put a bow on it, he dislikes it because according to him “it’s too fru-fru and hard to get in the envelope.
