"Less is More" Monogram

Hello Bloggers -
Today I decided to try something a little different - CAS! A friend told me about a site called The Daily Dare - it lists a lot of challenge sites. I looked at one called "Less is More." Their challenge this week is to make a monogram. I thought about it all week.


I hope my card qualifies!! I wanted to make my card for different purposes. I used the letter "T" for my name: Theresa, my job: Teacher, and a sentiment: Thanks! There was no way I was going to make this card without pink it in, so I hope that it's okay that I have one layer. I have been a long-time follower of Chupa (Random Acts of Creativity) and she is now doing a series of CAS cards called CAS-ify Me and I long to make cards like her and I noticed she has some with layers.

I do like my'll be a fast card to make and give to my student's parents when I want to send special notes home or a thank you note.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stamps: Close To My Heart (Solos "T"; Dreams Come True)

Ink: Close To My Heart (Olive and Desert Sand)
Paper: Bazzill and SU
Accessories: Close To My Heart (Opaques - Mocha)

I think it totally qualifies as a CAS card and it's just fabulous. The small touches of pink is perfect and I like that T can mean something to everyone.

I just wanted to stop by and say thank you very much for visiting my blog on the Jessica Sprague blog hop. You're welcome back any time! I have lots of free digital template freebies and I love making new friends. Thanks again, Heather

P.S. Your card is absolutely lovely. I think having one layer is a great example of keeping it simple. Very pretty!

I don't know how I missed this card last week... I checked at 10pm when the collection closes and at that time I had commented on all that were there!
How strange!
It's a lovely card, thank you so much!

I love it! CAS is so hard for me, but I admire it all to pieces. The pearl centres for the flowers are gorgeous, and I love all the meanings you can ascribe to your "T."
