This week’s challenge on the CAS-ual Fridays’ blog is to create a clean and simple project inspired by your blog header.  Here’s what I came up with:

I love making Christmas cards with a CAS (Clean & Simple) design as it helps to make the large number of cards needed a whole lot easier.  Plus, it also saves on postage!

But I think it is the elegant feel of a CAS design that I love the most.

Each month the winner for my sketch challenge is drawn by putting the names of all those participating into a hat.  The winner of my September Sketch Challenge is Bonnie aka raduse .  Congrats, Bonnie!!  Hope you have lots of fun with this Stampin’ Up! stamp set.

My next sketch challenge will be posted on October 15th.
Happy Crafting!

Stamps: SU Traditional Ornaments and More Merry Messages

Papers: PTI Select White and Vintage Cream; SU Always Artichoke; My Mind’s Eye “Lost & Found Christmas”

Inks: SU Bravo Burgundy, Handsome Hunter, Ballet Blue and Summer Sun

Accessories: Grosgrain Ribbon; Rhinestones
