I am so sorry for my lack of posting.  I have just begun my part time job as a "Home bound Tutor" for the local school district for the last couple of weeks.  This past week has been  a difficult trying to adjust to meet the needs of this student, juggling the needs of home and family,  as well as caring for some pets for family while they were away.  Prayerfully this week will be less frustrating, with fewer  responsibilities,  and my life will be more balanced.

Today I was asked to be a guest designer for the CAS challenge at Splitcoast.  This week's challenge was to make a clean and simple card using at least two of these colors from this color palette at Design Seeds.

I chose the the tone of gray that looked like Sahara Sand and two of the reds.

Here is my CAS creation using a sneak peak from Our Daily Bread Designs called Heart of Joy and Clean Heart and some gorgeous called Ornate Hearts and  Beautiful Borders.

The embossing folder is Darice Hearts.

I colored in my hearts with the three different colors and substituted kraft for a neutral or one of the grays since I did not have anything closer to the hues in the color palette.  I used some recycled corrugated cardboard from a package at Christmas.


 The card I made is a sneak peek of some beautiful new heart stamps, dies, and sentiments being released by Our Daily Bread Designs on February 1st. These stamp sets are perfect for Valentines, encouragement, wedding cards, or just to express your love any time of the year.  The best news is they are available now in the Our Daily Bread Designs Store as a Pre-Order!

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you were inspired in some way by my creation.  Have a blessed day!!!

Beautiful card Mom!! I love the hearts and how you used the corrugated cardboard!! Beautiful and it!!Love you!!

Wow Chris, this is beautiful! I'm really impressed that the border die-cut went through the corrugated cardboard so well even with all those little pieces it had to detail cut. That says a lot about the quality of the die-cuts. Your cards are always SO adorable, and I feel SO very blessed to have you play along in our challenges; sharing your talents. It really makes me smile. May God bless you for sharing, my friend.
