Santa Stop Here


In case anyone is concerned when they see my project today, let me firstly put your mind at rest :

My blog hasn't been hijacked by some unknown crazed crafter.

I've not mislaid my shoebox full of mulberry flowers (well it's a 'boot box' really cos it's HUGE).

My pile of gorgeous designer papers have not been shredded by the cat.

Nor have I lost my boot-box of satin ribbons (trust me, you need a BIG box to accommodate every shade of the rainbow in various widths of satins!).

My plastic pots full of pearls, brads and buttons are intact.

My dies are safely stored in their various (themed and labelled) magnetic folders.

My Big Shot's not bust, and my temperamental printer hasn't refused to print today (although I could be tempting fate by even hinting at that).

Nope, none of that.

I've just been looking at some of the crafters that I visit often, and realised that so many of them are C&S designs.  So I've decided I'd give this minimalistic lark a serious try with my lovely new LOTV stamps.

So brace yourself; here is the first one I'm sharing (and there will be a few more sprinkled over my blog during the next week or so) ...

Thanks for the warning, Annette ;)
I find your CAS card really super, so you can just throw away all your embellish stuff- or even better; send it to me!

Hi Just come over from another blog. Love your card today and see why you think it's minimalistic. I love both styles and it depends how I feel on the particular day. Just looked back on some of your cards and they are beautiful.
Will be here again.
