Pure & Simple!

It is my turn to set the challenge over on Dottie's World today! Here's what I said!

Last time I set a challenge for you back at the beginning of December I asked you to use texture, lots of ribbon, lace etc..... The lovely Ruth left a comment that got me thinking!

"Thanks for the challenge, Adele - I'm usually a bit scared of adding too much to my cards so this will be a good opportunity to stretch myself a little!Ruth xx"

For me I have gone to the other extreme almost, I see a blank bit of card and I feel I have to cover it, glitter it, stick a flower on it....whatever...but I need to add that detail. Right, no more waffle and on with the challenge. This week I want your creations to be


No patterned papers, just clean, fresh and simple. I don't want any fuss on our creations this week. You can include any Charmed download, the choice is yours!

It was actually weeks ago I decided on what cahllenge to set (yes I know it's very unlike me to be organised!) but when it actually came down to creating somthing I really struggled. Eventually I used gool old Scruff (Number 4!) on a plain white background embellished with a bit of stitching and some little white blooms!

The rest of the team have come up with some stunners as usual so make sure you pop over and take a look!
