Simple Sunday...

Happy Sunday,

Today will find me at a retailer training day for the CHA where I will be running a workshop for retailers.  I can't share the project with you just yet as it some some new products that will be on the market in mid november.  Keep an eye out at your local craft shop for some new releases!

Back to today I have made a simple one stamp and one die cut card. I do feel that sometimes a simple card can be just as effective as one you have taken hours sweating over!

  1. Morning John,
    Your Cards are truly Beautiful, I'm Loving The Stamp you've chose to use and I really Love the Colour combination you've put together. Thanks for sharing.
    I'm thrilled things are going so well for you since returning to England, have a great day today.
    Hugs from Sam xx

  4. Good morning John your card is gorgeous I love the simplicity of the design. As you say not all cards have to be complicated to be effective. I hope the training day goes well. Hugs Jackie

  5. Hi John, I definitely agree! Something very simple can be equally elegant and eye-catching. One of the things I really like about Sue's dies is that they are so versatile by having the outside edge a separate die. It gives a lovely alternative to a frame mounted on top. Hope you have a good day. Can't wait to hear what the new products are!
    Best wishes Anne O

  6. Hi John. Love todays card. The die makes a lovely frame for the stamped image. Sue's dies work in so many different ways don't they. I am looking forward to seeing what goodies you, and Sue, have for us in a couple of weeks : ) Have fun today,I hope it all goes well for you.
    I wonder, did you imagine what you would be doing today when you were sat in sunny Spain this time last year ? I am so pleased for all that has happened to you : ) Take care.

  7. Morning John,
    A simple and elegant card, love it.

  18. Pretty card John, and I agree with you, sometimes simple is good! Wish you hadn't teased us about new stuff coming in a couple of weeks time.

  19. Good morning John,
    I see that you have included your favourite colour again. I have to agree with you over the simplicity of today's card is lovely and could be just what you need every now and then either to give or to give your brain a change of pace. Thank you John for a lovely card and for being such a tease,
    crafty hugs
