My Style

Wow, it's been nearly a month since I posted last, but I do have some good reasons.  A trip to Disneyland, the flu (that's a nasty business!!) that invaded my home for nearly two weeks, and my birthday (yesterday) all kept me crazy busy.
But I did sit down last night and play along with the very FIRST challenge over at

http://gloriadesignschallenge.blogspot.com/2014/02/welcome-to-our-first-challenge.html

If you don't know Gloria, she is an amazingly talented designer who has created for several wonderful Design Teams (and she's a former 365 Cards DTer), and now she has her own challenge blog.
First up is to create a project featuring your signature style.
Boy that's hard to describe, but this card that I whipped up last night pretty much does it



I chose some double-sided Crate Paper patterned paper loaded with hearts and it became the card base.  The inside looks like it was painted with watercolors


And it's sturdy enough to just use the patterned paper without sticking it on cardstock.
I would generally describe my style as CAS, but I incorporated my favorite items/techniques into this particular card.
I added some silk ribbon, stitching, and heart-shaped pearls (Doodlebug Designs).  This card is all ready to give to one of my Valentines (my hubby & two daughters).

Hello, Pam my darling! Your team was one of my first teams! What a long time ago and what fun we used to have! I love your CAS card. I am a huge admirer of CAS card makers and scrapbookers because it is a style that I struggle with. I love the look! Your card is adorable. Love all the hearts and the popped up hearts just add the right touch!!! Thanks so very, very much for playing along with our first challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous! It is wonderful to SEE you!

I'm a huge admirer of the clean and simple card! That's the style I struggle with the most. But you have pulled it off here with style and beauty! Love the little dimensional elements you built in. Thanks for playing along in the very first CHACB challenge! Hope you will come play again soon!
