Less Is More At 365 Cards & SCS





Well this is the start of a new month at 365 Cards and believe it or not this card is for challenge #33. WOW!!! The challenge requires that you either use the top 1/3 of your card or the bottem 1/3 of your card. Well guess what that means 2/3 of your card is....gulp...just white...lol. I also peeked into the SCS CAS #08 and they had a sketch and the sketch was an actual card and guess what? It only uses 1/3 of the card and the rest was left white. Well whoda thunk?
I decided I would make a small card using my new Sizzix die. I can not tell you how many times I have had this diecut in my hot little hands (many times while either at JoAnn's or Michael's) and then end up putting it back thinking what would I do with it. Well finally last week my dd and I both had JoAnn's coupons for 50% off of a craft item. So I went over to the Sizzix diecut section and had a conversation with myself. "Buy it!!!" "No don't buy it!!!"....well finally my dd came over and said "Mom buy it!!"...how could I not...right? Well I am so glad I did because it has so many possibilities.

Ok I think that is enough rambling for now.

I hope you have a wonderful day and find a little time to stamp (or diecut) something. I will be back tomorrow with a swap card and the next 365 challenge but until then take care.



Peace Out

great card, aren't you glad your dd "made you" buy it, I love the way you put something up high yet stuck with the white space "guide line" wish I would have thought of that, I'll put that in my inspirations file, thanks for sharing

great card today! I love that conversation with yourself. I have that every week in a store or when I am online. iTs a curse! So glad you dd talked you into it. I could use one of those in my house. I only have my DH saying "don't you have something like that already?" or the like... then i feel all the guilt in the world. Hope you like your die cuts!
