Clean and Simple Sunday #2-2016

First up today before the challenge 
is the introduction of our first new Design Team member.

If you've been around the blog scene for long or if you hopped along with us
in 2015 on blog hop days, Kim's been a fixture and does some amazing cards. We are so
very excited she is joining us here at Card A Day Challenge Blog.

Hi, I'm Kim.
I've been involved in paper crafting for many years, having been introduced to it when a friend visited me in the hospital and brought her scrapbook along. I was so impressed with that scrapbook, it inspired me to begin scrap booking while recuperating, but what started out as something to fill empty hours turned into a real passion and I have been playing with paper in one form or another ever since. I live with Katy, my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who supervises my comings and goings and is the namesake of my blog, Katydidcards.

Now on to today's challenge, as stated last week, 
January is a little different so all the daily challenges are the same as last week.  
Today's clean and simple challenge is to create a Valentine card.

Let's see what Kim made for us.

This card goes together quite easily with an eyeglass cut file by Lori Whitlock through the Silhouette Design Store accented with dimensional heart stickers by Jolee's.  I finished off the corners with Fiskars 3 in 1 Lace Corner Punch.  Inside, I converted the cut file to print and used that as a cute way to include my sentiment.  I used Basic Black and Whisper White card stock by Stampin' Up.  ~Kim

Clean, simple and too stinkin' cute! Great start Kim.

Up next is Denise...

The Valentine card was made by embossing with a Cuttlebug folder and coloring one heart with a Spectrum Noir marker.  The stamp was done using the same marker. ~Denise

Tomorrow will introduce you to another new DT member, so be sure to stop by.

Happy Crafting
Theresa and the Card A Day Design Team
