Hang In There, LIM Challenge

Hey Stampers,

Hope you're doing well as the week draws to a close. Hang in's almost over for those of you who have the weekend off.

Less Is More is having a wire challenge. OK, I'm so old that the very first thing I thought of was using a telephone....SERIOUSLY, I did. Not to worry, I am a cell carrying owner as in Apple 6. So, the second thing I thought of was my teeny clothing hangers, compliments of Tim Holtz. That man loves doodads. It has taken me four days to find the itty bitty things. The upshot of that is that I've been gently reminded of all the doodads I actually own, most un-used.

I had the perfect stamp image to go with it, a Studio "G" $1.50 cutie. I bought this some time ago, because of the price. When I saw the challenge, I knew what I'd do. I just needed to find those hangers.

Easy CAS one layer, white card, stamped with Black Memento tuxedo black. I considered coloring in the little gift box, but decided this card really is best as CAS.

Go on over to the challenge and play or just welcome the newest Diva designers.

LOVE your idea and your hangers Erica! They are so much cuter than mine.

I love how this is so simple yet really fun... and stylish too in B&W! Great idea! You made me laugh about 'doodads'. I bet we're all the same (though I'm confessing to nothing)!

I'm so old I remember party lines!!! Fab make and my personal opinion is that monochrome WAS the way to go ... WTG!

Your stamp really is the perfect complement to the wire hanger. Fantastic card. So glad you've unearthed all your other doodads in the process of finding the hanger. It's like getting new stash, isn't it? Enjoy playing with it all.
Thank you for joining us this week.

Crisp, clever, CAS and totally awesome Erica. To be honest if I'd had a phone image in my stash I was all for using that for this challenge. Thanks for sharing at Less is More this week. Sarah x
