HYCCT1410 Just a Note

Hi all!  Happy Monday!  Or maybe I should say laundry day! Last night, 15 minutes past the time my kids are supposed to be in bed, we discovered a tick on my husband and on my daughter.  We were able to remove them and I started pulling everything to wash.  I will freely admit I’m not the most outdoorsy person and although our walk through the reservation was nice yesterday, finding ticks does not make outdoorsy things earn any brownie points with me!!  Another reason to stay in my craft room! LOL!

HYCCT1410 was “Something’s Missing” — in light of the surgeries many breast cancer fighters & survivors go through, we were to leave something off of the card.  Use a negative die cut, spotlight coloring, etc.  I was stumped for a bit on this one.  Then I tried something that I didn’t like the result.  Then I saw the current sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping and I knew what I wanted to do.

My missing piece is COLOR.  Often times, when I’m doing many challenges, I need to take the “easier” road and make simpler cards.  Otherwise, I’d get stuck in my usual style of many layers, colored images and two hour cards!  Not that there is anything wrong with that, but to quote Maverick & Goose “I feel the need, the need for speed.” So I pulled out my black & white washi tape and went to town.  I used sentiments from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Love Notes to create the sentiment line.  Quick, CAS & another challenge down!
