Clean And Simple with the Design Team for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today I get to put you out of your suspense!!!!!

What was it that Matt got me for my 12th Wedding Anniversary?

For those of you that said it would be craft related, you know me to well!! and Polly you were spot on the money and your mail did make me laugh :)
Yesterday I got to spend a full day with Wendy Kadzidlo from Stamps and Memories.  In a lovely hotel in Warrington.  I was up with the birds not only as I had to travel 2 hours to get there but also as I was sooooooooooo excited.  You see Matt paid for me to attend my

  Copic Certification Class.

I have waited so long for one of the classes to be within travelling distance and Wendy has been so kind in keeping me in mind when arranging her classes and finally I was able to book a day off and book for the class.

There will be a photo of the class to follow shortly, showing all the lovely ladies that I met whilst I was there, a lovely group and hope to keep in touch with them. Hiya ladies.................had a fabulous time:)

Now that the excitement of letting you all know is done I can move back on to the days normality

The next challenge is on at the 

this week the theme has been set by the very talented Kelly

and she chose

CAS - Clean and Simple

As it is the last challenge of the month, it is your last chance to be in the draw for the sponsor gift and our monthly sponsor is 

Now a Clean and Simple creation for me is always a struggle and I have I know used recently this same technique on another creation.  However my philosophy in life, do not create Design Team pieces that are not useful somewhere.  All my creations usually are planned for a person, or occasion.  This one was for Hannah who recently lost her dad.  It is the first time I have actually needed to create a sympathy card and Hannah had admired the previous creation.

On a new note after being certified, I have some ace ideas for future CAS cards :)
The base contrast is pink and the delicate background is made using Prima stamps .  I used my black Stazone and Tattered Rose Tim Holtz distress ink, quite a simple creation but so soft. Now if you like the edge effect but may struggle to achieve it, I have an amazing around the page stamp called Dandelion Frame by Hero Arts that does it all for you.

Don't forget to pop and take a look at the rest of the design teams inspirational creations.

I would like to welcome my new followers and thank my lovely visitors who leave such inspirational comments, thank you

I am entering this creation into the following challenges
Stamp Something - Use a Sentiment
Inspire me Friday - Anything Goes
Digi Doodle - Anything Goes
