Clean and Simple, Short and Sweet!

So clearly I am a little behind schedule today!!  I have been busy with work...had to stay late last night, then return first thing this morning. Which means that my blog post for today is just now getting posted! 

I wanted to share with you the CAS DT card that I made for this week's challenge!!  Miss Boo hails from Michigan (as do I many years ago,) and she has inspired us with some gorgeous postcards from photos taken at Mackinac Island (pronounced Mackinaw.)

To see all the details of the challenge, and the rest of the DT members submissions, visit the SCS CAS Forum HERE!

Using the tulips from the Breath of Spring JustRite stamp set, 
I created this card inspired by the tulips in 

THIS postcard!

 The DP panel is from K & Co.  The tulips were colored with Copics!  
The sentiment is from the Unity Store Kit called Sweet Affections from Dec 09.

I also masked off the oval that I diecut using a Nestie and sprayed a light blue background using the Copics Air cans.  The red ribbon gingham is from Michael's.  I just love these tulips... and you guys who know me might remember that seeing the tulips in bloom in the Netherlands is on my Bucket List!!  I really pray to go there someday!

I hope you will visit the CAS Forum and play along with us this week!!  I really love the refreshing break I get when I create a Clean and Simple card!!  :-)

Have a wonderful day and may your bucket overflow with the happiness that comes when you know someone thinks of you and smiles!!  When I think of all my blog followers, I smile!! You guys are what keeps me going and gives me so much motivation! I really appreciate your comments and thank you so much for caring to stop by my blog!!  :-)

Kelly this is a real show stopper. It caused me to pause for awhile while scrolling my google reader this morning. Those florals are amazing. Well done!
