A CAS Card Trio & some CANDY too!

Hi all! Time for some fun with Page Maps Monday! Let's get right to it! For my creations, this card sketch below was my starting point.....

And, because I have such a HUGE issue with creating clean and simple cards, I wanted to try, emphasis on "try", to create a cute little card trio taking this sketch and scaling it back a bit for a CAS design. 

So, here's card #1! I should mention, for all my cards I used a mix of Basic Grey Fact and Basic Grey Fiction paper pads. The card stock is Flourishes Classic White and Stampin' Up. The embellishments are all Prima. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

I should point out -- for my creations -- I used Becky Fleck's stamp sets called Address Book and Charms. AND HERE'S THE FUN PART!!! If you leave a comment on this post, I have an extra Address Book stamp set to give away!!!! So, leave a comment if you want to have a chance at getting your hands on this one!

Card #2......

Card #2 close up for you!

Card #3.....

And a close up of Card #3 because of all the razzle dazzle with some glitter glue!

 And that, my friends, is it! Super easy! I think I will stamp on some envelopes and then give this to a friend to have a little set of note cards handy for all occasions. Don't you just love having a sketch to start with and get those creative juices flowing? I sure do! And, there are so many to pick from on the CardMaps tab over at! While you're there -- check out some of the fun classes Becky is now offering at PageMaps U!!! Fun stuff!
