Some Simple Entries....

With it being the school holidays, it's busy busy busy. I find myself working until 11pm trying to keep up with all the business side of things, so I haven't had too much time to play.

To compensate for not having much crafty time, I have received 3 entries into the Simple challenge. It's so nice to see other people's creations and use them for my own inspiration....Thanks everyone!!

So here we have the first 3 entries:




3 stunning designs! Can't wait to see what else comes through!!

A Simple Card....

I thought I'd join in this month's challenge by making (to me) a Simple card.

I find that the more 'stuff' I accumulate, the more 'faff' goes into my card making. This time, I only used, white card, blue card, blue ribbon (not the biscuit), a stamp, black ink, promarkers and distress ink and a couple of brads.

OK, so that sounds a lot, but the end result looks simple yet elegant:

Not my usual style, but I like it.

August's Challenge

After much deliberation and over complicating matters, we've decided that August's Challenge will be 'Simple'

It's not as 'Simple' as it sounds is it?!?

The idea here is that less is more, so show us what you can create using very little. 

As with any of the challenges, this is your interpretation of Simple, so I expect we will see a lot of differing ideas.

Here's a couple of my 'Simple' creations using one of the new stamp sets from Stampin Up!

and if you're feeling festive, you could do a Christmas Card

The prize this month is a copy of the fantastic Molly Bloom Birthday Parade Magazine. It comes with Stamps, Ribbons, Buttons, Papers and lots of inspiration.

As always, you can post your pictures on here, facebook or email them to

I need more hours in a day....

It seems that lately I don't have enough hours to do everything I want and need to do. The card making requests are mounting up, but the business stuff is taking priority (along with Niamh and her need to be entertained every minute of everyday)

So, we're now into August, which means July's Challenge has closed. The winner is:

Alison 'Crafty Turtle' Turton

Alison received a fantastic 45 votes for this gorgeous creation.

I'm currently working on August's Challenge, but hope to post it tomorrow, so watch this space....

In the meantime
Happy Crafting
