A New Challenge...and a Sad Farewell...

Hello friends! It's time for another challenge here at Mo's!! And, because we'd like to change things up a bit, here's what you'll be "playing" for...
And we promise to get to our new challenge in just a moment!

But first, we have some very sad news...
Two weeks ago we lost one of our own.
Amanda Reed, our very talented friend and DT sister, passed away quite unexpectedly. Amanda was such a beautiful soul...and she touched so many of our lives in wonderful and profound ways.

Here's Amanda's final card for Mo's Challenge Blog...we think the sentiment she selected says it all...

Farewell, sweet friend!

OK....before you begin working on your own "Clean & Simple" creations, please take a few minutes to visit the DT's blogs (just click on their names) to find out more about their latest projects...and please don't forget to leave 'em each a little "love" while you're there!

You will have until 9 a.m. EDT (New York time) on Tuesday, October 7th to link up your project below!
