Friends of Unity January 2022 ~ Keeping it CAS

 Hi, friends! Welcome to 2022 and to our January FOU blog hop!

I pray blessings upon blessings for you all in this New Year.

This months cue is a favorite CAS. (Clean And Simple)  CAS typically means an easy to recreate card/project with minimal color(ing) and embellishments with a significant amount of white space. However, this style speaks differently to all of us. Create freely using the CAS cue and enjoy your own special creativity!

Time for some honesty friends! Every card I tried to create the past couple of days has flopped. I spent so many hours and became so discouraged, but not defeated. So, I decided to share with you cards I have made in the past that I consider clean and simple. I know you won't mind. ;)

Revisiting these relieved my anxiety. I like that. ;)

This first card I created in September 2019 using that months KOM called All kinds of Holiday Love.


This next card I created in February of 2020. I have used Journee Girl several times and always seem to color her in monochromatic style! Love her.


I hope you enjoyed revisiting some favorite CAS cards with me. And hey, thanks for being here.


My hope is that you read through the entire blog. Makes my heart so happy thinking you do!

As always~

Thanks for spending time with me today!

If I may, I'd love to invite you to follow my blog.
There is a "follow" button up a bit and to the right. --->
Not the follow by email, it's up just a bit from it. Thank you so much!
It brings me so much joy sharing my thoughts and creations with all of you!

Until next time~

Be blessed, friends!
