Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

Less is more - Version 9

After posting my last design, I went back and changed things a little, mainly in the band across the centre, which I changed from the ribbon to another border from the My Craft Studio Library, the lace design.  Again the colour of this had to be adjusted to tone with the backing paper, and the writing changed to reflect that this card is for someone else.  Both cards are for my sisters-in-law, who are identical twins.

If you would like to see lots more on the same design brief, just go to http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/
PS I am having problems today, getting my photos to show up on my blog.  In fact I had to go from using Firefox back to Internet Explorer to get to see it myself.  The original sketch is showing up but not my card.  I hope you have enough patience to find it.

Love the lacy look you added...perfect!

Thanks for another submission Maggie.
I think that as you have chosen to reduce the proportional width of the card from DL to something much narrower, this version with the medallion in the centre of the band works better than your previous one, as yours is such a slender card.
Thanks for working so hard on this challenge and we hope to see you next time!

Hi Maggie

You asked about 'sticking a posting' to the top of a blog. I've replied in my blog candy posting comments (only a few days to go now) - but, in case you don't hop back here's how (sorry I can't see how to email you).

This is how...using Blogger at least. Write your post and publish it as usual, then go into Edit and go back into that same posting. To the left underneath the text box there's 'Post Options' - that's the thingie you use to schedule postings. When you click on that you'll then see 'Post date and time' pop up to the right hand side. Just change that to the future date you have in mind and the post will stay at the top until the date/time you input is reached. Hope this explains it OK? Hugs, Di x
