Q.A.S.........

should have been tidying my craft room....but I couldn't help myself make one more card  before I cleaned and tidied my Oak House Studio stamps away. I have been joining in with their summer challenge (5 months and 5 designers exploring 5 different themes)
I am joining in with April .....Something blue.


So one more Q.A.S (quick and simple) note card for a friend...
One damaged piece of card stock....covered with a vintage book page, pc printed greeting, Oak House Mountain Ash leaf stamp and midnight pigment Ink ...and the card was done it a couple of minutes ....it took longer to get the things together.

I wanted to staple the sentiment on but despite tidying my room (well more or less) I still haven't unearthed the stapler.....so I had to settle for a fake doodled one ...plus two more on the panel on the insert.
Hopefully my friend will enjoy the bosom heaving text of the page...and I am hoping that this is CAS enough for Less is More who are looking white space ....that is not white?!?!

.....and I apologise to Ethel M Dell ...but the book is already seriously damaged.....it does go against the grain to rip books but in this case I am hopefully putting it to good use rather than see it permanently destroyed!!!


Oak House Studio blog for inspiration and the Inkspired Facebook Page where you could join in adding your blue projects.... Check out the pages for details.

...thanks for popping by :-)

Fun and classy take on the challenge at Less is More this week. We do like to see an area with no image, detail, pattern etc but I think your card is very clever and unique and thanks for sharing it with us at LIM. Sarah x

Thank you sarah ....yes do agree with you .....not sure if it was classically CAS! Please delete if not appropriate....did think I might be pushing the boundaries with my "white" space :-) x

VERY effective and different, love it.
I feel so bad removing or using pages from books, but in this case it looks wonderful.

I love this, Diane - I always think that book print looks fabulous! I agree with Sarah's comment above but it is great to see your card at Less is More :)

Sorry for my late visit this week, but time just ran away from me!
As the discussion has already mentioned... white space should be clear of any design, but I think it's a great card nevertheless, even tho' it's pushing the boundaries somewhat!
Thanks so much
