The Card Concept Challenge - No 1!

It sure feels good to be taking all these challenges already this year.  I did not do that much at the end of last year.  It is also exciting to try a new challenge and today’s Card Concept Challenge #1 came together nicely for me:


The styles are divided into 6 style themes:

  • Clean & Simple (CAS)
  • Clean & Layered
  • Clean & Graphic
  • Freestyle Collage
  • Shabby Chic
  • Classy & Elegant

I am choosing to make mine in the category of clean and layered



Designer Paper - Garden Party by DoveCraft

Strathmore Pastel paper

Image - Graphics Fairy

Grommets - Reflections

Scallop Cut - Barb Derksen

Text - Silhouette Sketch Pen



1 small thing is a little tidbit I will share each time I post. 

It will be a totally random thing - a recipe, tip, idea, craft, thought, photo.

Today’s small thing is:


Grow Your Own - Green Onions

Instead of keeping these hidden away in the bin in the refridgerator, put them in a window (hopefully you have a nice window in your kitchen) and allow them to get roots happening.  Next, plant them in a pot and you will have Green Onions for your stir-frys, salads and cheddar baking powder biscuits and… well, YOU get the picture!

Thanks for visiting!

  7. Oh your card is just wonderful! I love your take on the clean and layered style! Thanks so much for joining in on our first Card Concept Challenge! :)

  8. I love this, Mrs. Miles! That vintage roller skate took me back to my youth and brought a huge smile to my face! I loved skating with these and the clack clack of the metal wheels on the sidewalk! Hugs, Darnell
