Simple Cards...

Simple?  Cards??  Can this possibly be Words and Pictures?!

Yes, I know... it's very strange altogether.  If you don't believe me, you're just going to have to hop over to The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog to see them with your own eyes.


Clearly the celebrations have caused me to have a funny turn - too much Butterfly Blogaversary Candy, that's the trouble.  (Do make sure you leave a comment on the candy post if you'd like to be in with a chance to win.)

Hope you like what you find when you get to The Artistic Stamper - I think it's still recognisably "me"!  Happy Crafting all!

The more simple we are, the more complete we become.

  32. But don't pause too long, or else the zombies will catch up... they aren't so worthwhile. Off to see if there really is a simple card on the other side of that link.
