run away...


Pam over on the 365 Card Blog Day 278 issued a Keep it Simple challenge.  You were to use 1 ribbon, 1 sentiment, 1 blossom, and 1 button.  A perfect CAS opportunity!  And these Stampland images were just what I needed to keep it Simple.  I love their peony blossom  paired with the Art sentiment, a vintage glass button from my Grandmother's Button Box, and sea glass twill upcycled from a new throw I got recently at the MAXX.  Oh, I purposely left the trim ends ragged...an artful imperfection.

I'd would love to hear your thoughts on Art as a vacation right in your own home.  For me, I just have to open the doors to my art studio and I am transferred to a world of unlimited creativity.  And time stands still and flies...but that's another subject!

Be blessed.

I love your card! Love the sentiment! How true it is!
When I sat down to work on this challenge...the time just flew by...and I was in my "Happy zone." Thanks for sharing! I may have to borrow that sentiment!

I agree with you about the vacation business...my craft room is such a wonderful place to get away and create....I can throw papers and little bits of stuff on the floor and not think a thing about it for a day or two...LOL!!! You did a beautiful job with the CAS challenge, Susan...your one of everything design is perfect!!!!

Playing catch-up here, I saw and loved this the other day. The CAS is different to your usual style, but not the thought-provoking and challenging theme :D.
