 Joining us for this challenge we have the very talented Bobby of Bits & Pieces. Bobby was our Challenge Winner for  Challenge #199. Welcome Bobby! And now, a bit about our guest in her own words:

 "I love the Time Out challenge and have been participating in it and other challenges, as well as being on a number of Design Teams, for the past 10+ years since I started my blog.  I enjoy all kinds of products and techniques and am always open to learning new things.  Our community of card makers is so kind, compassionate and congenial that it has produced some great friendships."

And this is Bobby's card

You can be inspired by the whole quote or just some words. We can't wait to see where "Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication" takes you!  This challenge is sponsored by CAS-ual Friday Stamps with a $25 voucher for our winner, voted by the design team.  Thank you CAS-ual Fridays for the generous prize!


Our winner is also always invited to join us as guest designer and joining us for this challenge we have the very talented Helen Finlay of Moments Of Crafting. Helen was our Challenge Winner for  Challenge #198. Welcome Helen! And now, a bit about our guest in her own words:

"My name is Helen Finlay from Brisbane, Australia and have loved crafting since childhood.  After enjoying many different crafts, I started creating cards with a friend when our children were little around 25 years ago.  Since then it has become my favourite way to relax.  I enjoy challenging myself to use my stash in a variety of designs and  techniques and joining many different challenges. I love using colour to enhance my projects and my passion is colouring especially watercolour and copics.  As a retired teacher, I enjoy holding card classes and watching the pleasure it gives others."

Here is Helen's gorgeous card:

Introducing our Our Guest Designer, the lovely and talented Kinjal Trivedi of My Mind Paper.

Hi my name is Kinjal Trivedi. I am from India, but have resided in Houston, Texas for a few years. I started crafting seriously just a few months ago (on and off for a few years). I always loved stationery and collecting them and discovering these craft brands opened up a whole new world for me. I started out by making handmade cards for my spouse and it sparked a joy that still burns. I love using die-cutting elements in my cards and learning watercolor techniques at the moment.

Here is Kinjal's wonderful creation:



Here is some inspiration from our team:
