Even though Diane’s Daydream Designs is closed she is still honoring the challenges she signed up to sponsor in January. One of the challenges starts today and is Suzy Bee’s Bloomin’ Challenge with an Anything Goes with a twist of Clean & Simple (must do the twist). I don’t do traditional CAS very well. I consider my cards simple but they do have layers so that isn’t what traditional CAS is. It also takes me longer to do a CAS card then to do it how I normally do it. But I made one! One of my regular Christmas card customers never contacted me so I assumed he didn’t need cards this year. Well, with 4 days before leaving on his Christmas trip he calls and tells me he needs 16 cards!! Diane’s Daydream Designs had these amazing journal/mat cards that were beautifully put together so I used one of those. I then printed off baby Jesus from the Little Bits of Christmas and added him to the mat. Stuck the mat on a card base and the card was done.

Baby Jesus

I so wish Diane’s Daydream Designs didn’t have to close. I’m still sad about it and probably will be for a long time. The short time I was on her Design Team we got close as friends. She is an amazing woman and an amazing writer too. Check out her blog and her devotions will touch your heart. http://www.dianesdaydreamdesigns.blogspot.com/2014/12/word-art-wednesday-wisdom-of-god-plus.html

I hope you will play along in Suzy Bee’s Bloomin’ Challenge because Diane is offering these amazing stamps as the prize:
