the challenge as always is clean and simple but this week it is masculine , clean and simple ...not as easy as you think but i stepped up and this is what i came up with

this is another one for less is more and the theme was off the page !

i really love its simplicity ...which is the whole point right ??? part of the card had to be stamped off the page and i just stamped one of my hearts off the page and i think it's cute x
the next card is for a challenge over at
http://board.cardznscrapz.com/b/index.php
the challenge is vintage with tearing, feathers and distressing omg this is sooo me and i had a ball making it x some vintage buttons, aged chain, old brooch some handmade flowers and feathers and i was there !



and the last one is for a friend whos birthday was last week and the card is still sitting on my desk ..oops i am such a bad friend (but her pressie is gorgeous )
here is the card some simple layering a scalloped sentiment and and a silk hand made flower with a button center ..cute !

so friends that is it for this post , will be back real soon with my altered stuff to share , until then
happy crafting

  14. Beautiful cards! Receiving a handmade card is so special! I used to take a class and make 5 cards a week. I think I made about 25 cards. I can't give them away because I like them so much. LOL
