Cupcake Craft Challenge 78...Keep It Simple


Hi everyone...its so nice waking up this morning knowing that I have a couple of days off...no real plans as such but I think we might go out and grab some lunch somewhere today...maybe with a craft shop en route if I'm lucky!

Monday means a new challenge at Cupcake Craft and Victoria has chosen this weeks theme which is KEEP IT SIMPLE! I thought I'd play safe and make a mans card so that I wouldn't be tempted to pile on the flowers...ribbon and lace lol! I think the DT girls have done a great job this week...pop over and take a peek if you get the chance!

We are sponsored by Soft Pencil this week and Elizabeth is offering a prize of a $20 gift voucher...she has some mega cute images in her store and the little animals are completely irrestible!

Design Papers : Sweet Shoppe Designs (Lucky Charms)

I let out a little chuckle when I read that you created a Man card in order to Keep It Simple. Love this challenge idea, I am usually quite simply challenged.

Hi Donna, fab card chuck, love the layout and great papers. Hope your enjoying your week off. Can't get on the SC forum, been trying for a few days now, keeps saying internal error. At best I get onto main page but can never get past that.
