City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #45 ~ Nothing to it!!!

A new week at City Crafter again, can't you believe how time flies, we are now at week #45

Linda wants "Nothing to it" this week, Yes, NOTHING, no bows, no buttons, no flower, just one dimensional, LOL, kind of tough for me Linda!!!!

Here's the card I made for my husband's birthday


I have been wanting to use that October Afternoon paper for the longest time, just didn't find a chance.


Big bold 53 and sentiment, not the usual thing I go for, but I am loving this


Alright, I am inviting you to take on this challenge with us over at City Crafter Challenge Blog, you can see the lovely samples of our DT


And this week we are having the talented Keri Lee Sereika guest designing with us, what an honor!

Hop over and join in the fun!

It;s good to see some handmade beauties from the DT at CCB because I really need some inspiration :) This is beautiful Kirsty; I love your use of patterned papers. I never ever would have thought that your husband is turning 53. He looks younger on the pictures :)!!!!!
