Simple 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

For my card I used the new MY MIND EYE’ S Stella Rose {Gertie Line}. I also used on this card Bazzill Cardstock and a Prima flower. The leaves are from the floral dept. of my local craft store. I paint them with glue and add glitter…!! I used Glue Dots® to adhere and a border punch t0 decorate.

I had to smile when I ask my adult daughter Jessie “Is this a simple card?” and she, “ For you.” Each week I will be working on keeping it simple and beautiful! I hope you have enjoyed my first attempt at Simply Sunday…I know I have!

We would love to have you visit each of our blogs. <3

Thank you for coming by and spending a few minutes of your day with me as I explore my creative yearnings…until next time be creative!
