Default HYCCT1228 Clean And Simple Statement Chatter Thread

Challenge Title: Clean And Simple Statement
Hostess: meerkat3 aka Leslie
Keyword: HYCCT1228
Date: Sunday, October 28th, 2012

Hello, there. Here it is the 28th of the month, and you've probably done (or at least thought about doing) around 30 challenges so far. So, for my challenge, I chose Clean & Simple (CAS), partly because there's nothing clean or simple about the nastiness of cancer, and partly because I can't do CAS. It's true: I fear white space.

So my challenge for you today is to make a Clean & Simple card, with a sentiment or word as your focal point. That's it - no other requirements.

For those of you who rock the CAS concept, you know what to do.

For those of you who struggle with the concept of CAS, why not check out the SCS CAS thread here for some ideas? Here's something they include with their challenge posts:

What is CAS?
CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple.

It's all about the design.
* not the technique
* not the tools
* not the embellishments

It's all about the design.
* Uncluttered
* lots of white or open space
* one main focal point

It's all about the design.

Clean & Simple

I can't wait to see what you make!
