So, yesterday my partner said to me, 'Oh, Mum's moving tomorrow; can you make her a card? ' !

The lamp is a cutting file, cut on my Silhouette and I stamped the base with a woodgrain stamp and inked all the edges. I decided to use the colour scheme from Mod Squad Challenge (blue, brown and one other neutral).

I decided to make the sentiment in Silhouette Studio - I always feel a bit overwhelmed when looking for a font, there are so many. Then I remembered a challenge I had been looking at earlier, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  'J is for..' and decided to look for a font beginning with J - there were only three - and this is Jasmine UPC.

As I think this qualifies as CAS, I'd also like to enter Less is More anything goes.
