City Crafter Challenge..

I don't know about you but I am so ready for spring..
I can't wait to get out in my yard and do some planting..
I am so done with winter..  How about you?
Do I even need to ask?

These flower are still hanging in there.. I got them for my anniversary
almost 3 weeks ago..

Well onto this weeks challenge over at CCCB!
I am hosting this week and I really don't know what I was thinking..
This challenge was so hard for me to do.  I really can't wait to see
what everyone else comes up with..

Nothing to it!!

That is the bright idea I came up with..  The challenge is to make a
one dimensional card.. You can't add any of your favorite things
like Seam Binding.. Buttons... flowers..   Nope you can't add nothing to it!

Well here is what I came up with..  This simple one dimensional card..
I just love this little butterfly stamp..  But my hubby says it looks like a moth..
I told him I don't even think they make stamps with moths..
Do They?

See nice and flat.. It can go through the mail with no problem.

To get all the details on this challenge you can head over to CCCB!

There is a great prize up for grabs this week..
$15.00 from Pixie Dust Paperie.. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Linda

I have been waiting all night for your post! Kirsty's was really early today!!!! We can not add anything but there can be layers, right? I love your butter-oth! It could be either or or a combination, just giving you a laugh. It is late and I have not had dupper. I have been working in the yard when I take the cats out. Yesterday Fluffy got herself on the roof, took up my gardening time! Your card is lovely and the challenge looks like fun! Have a great tuesday!

This is absolutely beautiful Linda, even it has no ribbon, buttons or flower!
I love being challenged, so I would say, this is a good one!

Beautiful card Linda and a great challenge ... Yep, I'm so looking forward to Spring ... it isn't here today though ... Have a lovely day my friend

Hi there Linda, love your one dimensional, I love moths nearly as much as butterflies! You're so right 'bout time spring was here. We have snowdrops, the daffodils have yet to burst into colour but it won't be long, next few days, yippee!:0)

Catherine said...

Winter is just dragging on and on.... I can't stand it!

Your flowers are so pretty ~ even after 3 weeks! And your card ~ cute as per usual!! I bought some cute butterfly embellishments at the dollar store this weekend and am hoping to have a crafting weekend coming up soon while hubby is away at a hockey tournament!

Have a super week Linda!

Linda, this is so beautiful! I think this is a fantastic challenge--it will make me put my thinking cap on. I can't wait to try it!!

ain't for city gals said...

This one must have been hard for you Linda...can't do all your magic with it! Very pretty though....I am trying to enjoy the cool temps still because I know what is coming...spring will be here for two days and then full blown summer!

Mona L. Pendleton said...

Pretty CAS card Linda! I am too ready for Spring :)

Jane Wetzel said...

hey there Linda- this really came out good! I also have a hard time with the one layer thing..really a challenge! :) Sure is a cheery card and yes..Spring needs to get here esp this year!

Cheryl Nelson said...

You about killed me with this challenge Linda! haha!! Your card is just lovely! *and I thought butterfly not moth. I, too, am ready for spring!

Julie said...

It doesn't matter which it is,it's beautiful.... I love the sunny colours,just what we all need. Have a good day,Julie.x

Cynthia Schelzig said...

What a super shot of the flowers in the glass...I love it when flower stems are so distorted through glass and water...these look great!...super one layer card too.

Becca said...

Hi Linda, well I still think this is a pretty card. I never would have thought twice about that until Bruce said something, but it's still beautiful and could be a butterfly! I think I posted photos once of a "fluttering" insect that I called a butterfly, but it was grey with orange spots and it was probably a moth too, but it was still lovely! Your flowers still look so pretty, that's what's nice about that kind...they last forever, unlike roses. Have a lovely day, I have the day off, so I'll chat with you later. :-)

Charlene said...

I love it when flowers last longer than I think they would. I have some lilies from a few weeks ago that are still going strong! I think your stamp looks like a butterfly but even if it’s not at least it’s pretty.

Stella said...

You definitely made a challenge this week :)
And your card is gorgeous!
Have a wondeful day!

Lynnda Hosni said...

Beautiful card, Linda!! Janna

Audrey Pettit said...

Ah ha! So we have YOU to thank for this difficult challenge! I've been seeing cards around this week, and I have to admit to being totally intrigued and yet horrified by this challenge all at the same time. Guess it would be a true challenge, and I have a hard time resisting that.
I think you did an awesome job. Clean and simple with lots of layers and very pretty stamping. A+, girl!

Tracy said...

Nothing to it's not so easy huh? LOL I still haven't come up with anything that's not "something" {grin}. I love your little butterfly card. It really didn't need anything else. Hugs!

Suzanne C said...

Wonderful card. I think it is a moth too. ;) But it looks beautiful! Great challenge!

Davi said...

GREAT C& S Linda!! Pretty colors and yes they do make moth stamps( I think its one also) :) Pretty photo of your flowers also.
