APTS blog January 2020 anything goes theme with option of CAS

A Place To Start challenge blog is starting 2020 with the month of January having anything goes with an option to do CAS (clean and simple layout style). For this resident designer project I have chosen to not do CAS for my card featuring Bugaboo's Ginger Bowl digital image.

Bugaboo is our sponsor for January 2020 and they have graciously provided a wide array of their selections for the team to start this 1st month of a new decade!

*Edit note on 1/6/2020: I'm hours late getting this posted. I was in the hospital yesterday until about 11:30 am today. Had to get a Rx then due to distance had about a 1 hour break at home and then back out to pre-scheduled dental appointments for both my husband and I. UGH! Only been back home for about an hour to get this released. Sorry for the delay.

I appreciate everyone who follows my blog and those crafting bloggers who stop in for a visit from one of the blogs or groups that I check on occasionally. Thanks! Let's have a wonderful fun time crafting and expressing our artistry in 2020!
