A hop out of kin today - that's to say, a card which is not in my usual style, but rather aims at being Clean and Simple (CAS).
I really, really wanted to find time to join in with the Artful Times challenge this fortnight which is Inchies, and was waiting for inspiration to strike... but it wasn't until I spotted the Less Is More Foliage challenge, looking for one-layer cards, that an idea started to form. As usual, it formed in the middle of the night, so there I was at 6am this morning at the craft table, and here it is...
Since the challenge is One Layer, everything has to stamped direct onto the card, with minimal embellishing. I remain in two minds about the twine and whether it should be there or not...!
And that's pretty much that... Hope you'll find some time for crafting today - as I've just discovered, you only need ten minutes sometimes!!
I'm entering this for the following:
The Artful Times challenge which is Inchies
Less Is More are having a One Layer challenge with the theme of Foliage
Artistic Outpost's September challenge which is Anything Goes using an AO stamp
And I'd like to join in with the Bloggers' Challenge this week: Bring On Fall, hosted by Lisa Somerville over at Splendiferous Creations, so you'll find the hop below the quotation if you'd like to join in the fun!
The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.
