One Layer Wednesday #14

Ah, it feels good to be back to one of my favourite card challenges after devoting all my waking hours to cards/projects for Dare to Get Dirty 2010 over at Splitcoaststampers.

I think it’s also time that I admit to myself that I am, in fact,  a Clean and Simple stamper/cardmaker.  Oh, yes, I would LOVE to be able to make Shabby Chic cards a la Melissa Phillips but it’s just not something that comes naturally to me.  I blame having lived in a loft (see below for pics) for several years 😉

*Edited to say: sadly, we no longer live in the loft, we sold it, moved to the ‘burbs,  had a baby, decided suburban living wasn’t for us, sold our house, moved back to the city and now rent an awesome (but not loft-like) apartment.  Sorry for the confusion.

Anyway, on to the cards.  These came together super quickly – also not second nature to me – my style may be “Clean and Simple” but it’s not “Clean and Simple and Only Takes a Minute to Come Up with an Idea”.

Annoyingly, the loft pics appear in two places.  I’m not sure why.  I could ask tech-guy, but he’s cooking dinner.  Please pretend that this post is just perfect in every way.  Heh.
