Clean & Simple Card Making - Day 1

After much debate, I decided to sign up for the Clean & Simple Card Making Class. Two of the girls at The Outlawz were just raving about it and just about every stamper on my blog roll is either taking the class OR designing for it. I was feeling left out :( I'm a few days behind, but I was able to make a card using one of the sketches from Day one. I've never taken an online card class and it's quite fun. I'm excited to see what I learn over the next two weeks!!!

PS- I am having a terrible time getting good photos of my cards this winter, any tips?

Maureen, CAS is totally my style. I just love it. This one is just beautiful. Love that sentiment also. I can't help you on the picture taking. I don't have any luck either, but I hope this makes you feel better, the picutres of your cards look just right to me. Enjoy your evening.

I absolutely LOVE this card! It's so pretty and elegant and PERFECT! I've been debating signing up for that class too and just decided to go for it! Thanks for the inspiration!

I use a light tent for my pictures year round and even with that sometimes lighting is a challenge. If my lighting is really bad I edit it in GIMP. That being said I think this picture turned out GREAT!
