Clean and Simple - Yikes

Yes it's those words that strike terror to your heart, even worse than Christmas in July, it's Clean & Simple. Come on, why were inks and paints invented if not to cover the full page (and fingerprints). Anyway Crafty Individuals want C&S, and this is the best I can do.

It's madness that I can stitch a border but I can't doodle one. Giving me a black pen and something to doodle is like giving a 3 year old a bright red lipstick - it isn't going to end well, so I've sewn mine.
Right, it's time to screw down a few floorboards in my craft room, I'm now perfectly insulated (for a room made of glass) and ready for my new roof in a couple of weeks.
Have a happy Sunday, and thanks very much for looking x


  1. This is such a lovely card Sue and I love how you've coloured the ducks. Stitching the border is a great idea too, it looks fab. Your craft room sounds very interesting! :) Sandra x

  2. Its a stunner Sue! I love it! Beautiful colouring! Lol, the only borders that I do with a pen are morse code style!
