Vintage Clean & Simple

Now it's time for two completely different creations.

This first one if for a few of different challenges.

Over at Wee Memories.
Jenny challenges us to use ribbon and have a vintage
theme.  I can say that the ribbon IS vintage, as it's
going on 25 years old  : )

I thought I would also enter this for the
Pile it On challenge...'Think Spring'
The Cuttlebug EF flowers with
the background vines have an
'air of spring about them'
which inspires me, anyway   : )


I am also entering this card over at
365 Cards.
This challenge is 'Digging Deep' and
requires 3 things:
1.  Something over 1 yr old
(my ribbon, of course)
2.  Something you were given but never used
(the tissue paper was an RAK)
3.  Something you forgot you had
(the fabulous Martha DP, which I will be using now!)

365 Cards


I am also entering the above card for:
Both are Clean & Simple challenges.

Another take on CAS is this little baby card.

I am sending this over to Stampin' Royalty and

I must say, I am SO thankful for challenge blogs
right now.  When you are having trouble getting
your creative juices flowing, using a challenge to give
you a framework to start in is the perfect solution.
I know that we hear that all the time over at
The Play Date Cafe...speaking of which...

There is still a little over 24 hours for you to play with us
this week.  It's an easy CAS challenge as well.
Black & white with a 'splash' of orange.
So if you are looking for a quick JOLT of creativity,
get your fix over in The Cafe!
