CAS... or PAB? (Unity Friends with Flair, January 21st)

As with any good cult hobby, the world of rubber stamping and card-making has its share of jargon and acronyms. Probably the one closest to my heart is Clean And Simple, or CAS as it's known to those of us on the inside. While I can admire and appreciate detailed, layered, distressed or embellished creations, it's not in my (admittedly tiny) style range. Which brings me to this card.


This, I am afraid, may be less CAS than it is PAB -- a new acronym I've invented! It stands for, of course, Plain And Boring. Two colours of cardstock, one colour of ink, two images, no highly original layout, no embellishments. But I have to admit, I kind of like it anyway.
Check out the Unity blog for the entire list of participants in today's Friends with Flair Hop. You'll find lots of flair!
