Simply Sunday - Our Challenge - Change Can Be Beautiful Card

Simply Sunday

What is Simply Sunday? Simply Sunday is a day for a little bit of simplicity in our lives and our journey as designers. No chit chat, no tutorials, no fancy techniques and only one or two photos.

How did Simply Sunday come to be? While talking with a couple of friends we decided we wanted to do something different this year, something that would challenge us. We each create and design with a LOVE for embellishments and lots of them I might add--LOL! So we thought why not challenge ourselves to create simple cards. Now, I know you might be thinking that doesn't sound like much of a challenge but sometimes creating the simplest of things can be one of the hardest things to do.

If you would like to join us in our journey of finding simplicity in our lives and our creative designs please leave a link on one of our blogs--we would love to see what you create!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi, Karen & Terre

    I have a question, I tried to send you an email but I kept getting an aborted message...
    Here's my question.
    I follow your blog faithfully and know you must have bunches of JustRite stamps. How do you store them, they are so different from regular stamp sets it's hard to find something that works. What are you using?
    Thanks, Dotty A
