Another Valentine`s card, A brand new challenge blog and an award.

Happy Monday All!

I have today off so it`s very happy for me. All my household chores are done so I`m crafting..yaaaay!

While visiting you all over the weekend I popped into Sarita`s Blog 
to check out her latest stunning creation. If you haven`t already found Sarita, check her out, she does the most amazing artwork. Anyway while there she told us about a brand new challenge blog called Simply Less is More.
The remit is CAS, clean and simple with lots of white space and, this week, using Black, Pink and White.
Sooo I just had to give it a go didn`t I. This is what I came up with.

This has to be the quickest card I`ve ever made. I must admit I found it quite diffucult to stop myself adding just a few pearls or gems or maybe a bow but I was very, very good and stopped at clean.

I used one of the Elusive images hearts with flourish stamped on black card and embossed with pink EP and placed it using foam pads.
My sentiment is Flourishes Tag Lines stamped in black.
I scored some lines just above the sentiment to give it some texture and that`s it.

I also got a lovely surprise from my blogging buddy Karen 
who has given me this award,
In accepting the award I've had to agree to the following conditions:-

1) You have been tagged, do you want to accept? YES! then create a post on your blog and post the love blog photo.

2) Link back to the person who gave you the award and say if you accept.

3) Choose 3-5 of your favourite blogs to tag, link these in your post too and tell the lucky people they have been tagged.

There are so many fantastic blogs that I follow or check out but ofcourse I can`t choose them all so I`m giving this award to...

Enjoy the rest of the day. Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
