Just a snippet!

The time for our first challenge is fast approaching and we thought we'd give you a snippet of our first cards... we have them all ready and waiting..
A little bit of Chrissie's on the left and a little bit of Mandi's on the right!
As you can see there's lots of what we love... white space... I wonder what the challenge will be!!??
Check back on February 5th for the first of our challenges...you'll see a whole lot more!

Please take our banner!

We have been overwhelmed by the amount of interest in and support for our new blog. Work behind the scenes has been  progressing apace and we now have a wonderful banner which we hope you will display on your blogs. (Mandi really is quite a whizz!)
We hope to become a community where you can let us know what you think, what you would like to see, and what you enjoy.
We intend to post tips and tutorials but if you see something that you would like explained, we hope that you will let us know.
As there are only two 'hostesses'... Mandi and me, we hope that you will take an interest in other contributors' work and leave them some comments. Everyone loves to read a little bit of kindness and so we hope that you will join us in visiting each other's blogs and leaving a few special words of encouragement.
There will be prizes from time to time and sometimes we would like to invite participants to become Guest Designers.
February 5th will soon be here and we can't wait to see your clean & simple creations.
Chrissie & Mandi
