Challenge 25 - Less is more...

As expected, you all really seemed to enjoy our Father Christmas/Santa Challenge last week and we thoroughly enjoyed viewing all your handiwork.
As we enter a new month, we feel really sad to have to wave "Goodbye" to our June Guest Designer Claire whose creations every week were absolutely stunning.  We loved having her as part of the team, bringing her fabulous inspiration to our challenges.
We are however, really excited to tell you that Debs from Pink Dandelion's Craft Space has joined us for July and I bet, like us,  you can't wait to see what treats she has in store for us over the next few weeks.

This week is also our Prize Draw week and we have plucked this super Crafter's Companion Christmas Stamp Set from the Santa sack as the reward for one lucky random entry this week.
To be in with a chance of winning this stamp collection, you need to show us your project based on our theme of
Less Is More
Does this mean that we're looking for clean and simple lines, with few, (if any), frills or flounces?   Hmmmm ... this might be a huge challenge for those of us who love our embellishments. 
Or could we simply be referring to size and are we looking for teeny tiny cards and projects? 
Actually ... we would be delighted to see either option ... or both ... or something else entirely!
The DT examples below show our interpretations of this week's theme and if you'd like to see the details of supplies and techniques we've used, just click the linked names to visit our personal blogs. 

Now ... it's time to show us what you can do and how you interpret our theme.   
The deadline for this challenge is

12 noon (UK time)
Thursday 8th July 2010
You are free to create whatever you like ... it doesn't have to be a card ... in fact, show us as many different projects as you want to share.
Just remember ... have fun and don't forget to leave us a direct link to your project in our comment box so we can come and admire your creativity.

Ann, Irene, Max
