Squigglefly Challenge blog offers the perfect challenge for the new year--a CAS or Clean And Simple card. I want to live a clean and simple life. I'm cleaning out cupboards and closets and drawers and (gasp) my craft room. (No one should have a whole room for crafts and it NOT be enough room!)
So I used a January release from Squigglefly for this month's theme. It's called "Basset Hound" by artist Enid Barnes. Now, my allergies keep me from owning pets other than the occasional fish, so forgive my coloring. I just don't know dogs that well (and my allergies to flowers extend to the drawing and coloring of them as well--a psychological issue, perhaps?).
I colored this cutie with my trusty Copics, then framed the image with coordinating cardstock. I kept the card CAS by using circle punches to form a border. I stamped THANK YOU once, but it was skewed, so I stamped more at other angles to "hide" my boo boo.
Inside the big circle I stamped hearts on a smaller circle. I adhered a leftover piece of pink paper on the inside of the card for contrast and my CAS card is complete.

Now it's time to go back to cleaning out with my new year's mantra "Reduce, Reuse and Recycle." I have two bags for Goodwill so far and a trash bag full of rubbish. Why ever did I keep this stuff? LOL
