FTL100 - A Special CAS Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Clean and Simple Stamping blog hop.  We are celebrating our 100th Fall to Layout - all created by Natasha Trupp!  If you started here you can go to the Clean and Simple Stamping blog or click on the links at the bottom of this post to go to the other CAS stampers' blogs on this hop!  I interpreted the sketch two different ways.   For the first card I embossed above the sentiment since the sketch didn't call for an image.  In the second one I stamped the image.  I like them either way.
I hope you are enjoying the hop!  Click on a link below to continue on and don't forget to leave a comment on the way!!
Then create your card following the sketch and link it to the CAS blog so we can all see your creations!
Thanks for coming by!

  14. What beautiful cards, both of them. I usually find DP too busy and distracting, but it just MAKES the first card and makes the other elements important. The embossing folder is one that's been calling my name and now goes to my Must Have List.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Might have to give this a go myself. Looks easy enough I reckon.

  26. Just blogging around and found your blog. What wonderful cards. I have considered trying to learn how to do this great craft of card making, but doubt I could actually pull it off, so for now I just admire all of you talented ladies.
    Thank you for letting me visit.
