*Squares and Circles*

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

I must admit that I am forgetting to post to my blog... perhaps I should stop trying to remember and just schedule some posts for a while.  Hmmmmm, it's a thought.... but I think I'll work on trying to remember on my own for a while longer.

Getting back to my life has been busy, hard, easy, good, bad and ugly LOL.  A total mixed bag of emotions and feelings about it all.  I'm not pushing anything... I know it will all come with time.

It feels like I've been home forever.... but also like I only just walked in the door.  Does that make sense?

Anyway... I have been crafting a bit... even managed to make THREE CARDS with the CalGals on Friday night.... at Shannon's house!  Yup!  I crafted away from home!  I even like two of the three cards I did.

This is one of the cards I created in my brief stay at home back in August... it sat on my craft table for 8 weeks before it got photographed!
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  PaperTrey White; Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip
*Images:  Stampin' Up! Wonderful Words
*Ink:  Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip
*Tools:  Stampin' Up! square punches
*Embellishments:  Making Memories brads
*Challenges:  FTL102

I have been doing a lot of the Clean and Simple challenges since I got home... I think they take less thinking than most of the other challenges I seem to like....  I only have one more of their challenges in my To Do folder before I have to bite the bullet and do some of the other challenges.

Thanks for popping by!!!

This is lovely in it's simplicity, and the little "random" circle decorations spice it up just enough. I like the lines and focus of CAS cards, and they are always mailable which is a bonus.

What a great, simple card. The buttons add just the right amount of texture and dimension.
