Simple Sugar

It’s time again for a new cue word over at CASology and we think you’ll like this one! Unless your sweet tooth has already been satisfied by the Halloween goodies that keep finding their way in the door.

Personally, I’m trying to reduce the amount of refined sugar I eat.  Trying.  Unsuccessfully right now.  Halloween is just not a good holiday for a chocoholic with three young children!

Stamps:  Neat & Tangled (Sweet Home)

Neat & Tangled is our wonderful sponsor over at CASology this week and Danielle ever-so-kindly provided the design team with some stamp sets to play with!  I couldn’t resist wrapping things up a bit!  The little mint just had to have a wrapper.  A cling wrap wrapper.  I know a clean and simple card is supposed to be just that…clean and simple, but this one ended up being not-so-simple after I fought with the cling wrap for several minutes, trying to get it to stay flat against the card and yet, not too flat!  Aargh!  That was not the simplicity I’d imagined in my mind!  I added a tiny little green gemstone in the center just for a little holiday festivity.

Be sure and visit the rest of the team’s wonderful blogs this week, including our guest designer, Bev!  Then, be sure and link up your own creation on the challenge blog by Sunday, November 4 at noon (CST)!  Oh, and this week, there are free stamps from Neat & Tangled to be won, so be sure and join the fun for your chance to win!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    What a fun idea with the cling wrap. Love it!
    Good luck with cutting out the refined sugar. If you manage that, you are stronger than I will ever be. 🙂

    This is SO sweet!! I'd often wondered if I could use Cling Wrap as a candy “wrapper” on cards. Looks pretty good, even if it was tough to wrangle!!
