Challenge 61 - Simples!!

Oh yes its the time of year where the pressure starts to mount as you realise Christmas is, I'll say it quietly.... 5 and a half weeks away!!!!  Aaaaaargh haha!!  Yes you need to step up a notch now with the xmas cards and gifts so this week I thought I'd give you a challenge to help you along the way in that I'd like to see SIMPLES, that is just keep it simple, forget the embellishments as that can get pretty expensive if you've lots to make so just a button here and there, a couple of sticky gems or a simple bow will suffice for these.  I'm not asking for Clean and Simple, oh no I dont do clean but you can if you wish but mucky and simple is what we're about!

The team are having heart failure over this one What no flowers???  Well yes you can, just one, maybe two but imagine you having to mass produce 50 of your design and think of the cost so just make them creative without the accessories :)

And to make it worth your while we're offering a prize of 3 digi's from our very own Crafts & Me, the girls have all used digis from the range below and we add new ones on the 1st of each month too!

We have 2 guests joining us for this challenge, firstly Dianne aka CRAZYCRAFTSHED who leaves the team lots of lovely comments over on our shop blog.  She is joining us for 2 challenges and here is her beautiful card featuring Birth of Twilight

Our 2nd guest is joining the team for the whole month including on the shop blog and challenges and that is Lydia and she has used Perched at Dusk
