More babies

I didn't get much time to look around everyone's entries for the Less is More challenge yesterday as my friend, who isn't remotely crafty, came round to my house for lunch with a card kit she bought whilst with me on one of our recent shopping trips to Chesterfield.  I convinced her she could make the kit so she bought it and she came round so I could help and she could use my stash - they're Christmas cards but it's never too early to start right?   She did enjoy it but she definitely didn't catch my crafting bug (more's the pity as it would be nice to have someone to play with!) but I do think she made a good job for a first attempt (even though she was a bit freaked when I suggesting adding to and changing the designs that were on the box!!!!)

However, I did make a start on my visiting, and I was totally blown away by this card by Vicky as I just love how clean and graphic it isand the little heart is so cute.  I was really inspired to make an even more stripped down version - so I knocked up a couple of quick cards, again for the forthcoming sales I'll be doing for St Lukes (we have a couple coming up in June).  They haven't photographed very well as the colours are so soft (angel pink and summer sky momento)  The hearts are actually sequins.

I'll get around to everyone else later in the week - time for bed now as the weekend is officially over :(

  6. Two for the price of one, cool. Lovely simple cards.

  7. Great to have someone to craft with, give her time, I'm sure she'll want to play again LOL I love your baby cards, so clean and simple. There is something special about babies' cards 'yummy' is the word that springs to mind :0) They are mostly white with just a small addition of pink or blue and so sweet too. Thank you for your kind comments on my cards you made my day, xxx

  8. You never know Tara, you're friend could be back for more! Thank you for your lovely comment about my LiM card - I'm glad you liked it! I really like your pared back design and that little sequin heart is the perfect touch! Vicky x

  9. These are simply FAB Tara
    Thank you very much
