Less is More week 73

Good morning everyone, hope that you are enjoying your weekend....... I've got my sister coming over for lunch today so whilst I'm waiting for her to arrive I've sneaked into my craft room to make a card for this weeks Less is More challenge.  I was so late in entering last week (only posted my card on Friday afternoon!!) that I really wanted to enter this week's challenge early!  So this week the theme is Recipe:-

Our recipe this week will give you the opportunity to dig out some of those scraps of Designer paper that have been lurking around in your craft space, as our challenge is
'Paper Piecing'
So once I had decided what stamp set and paper to use I got to work on my card:-

The papers I've used are by Papermania: Capsule Collection and the stamp set is Hero Arts.  I had fun making this card and just love the "fresh blue"against the white of the card. 

Changing the subject: I had to put my heating on last night...... and I'm really getting fed up with this rain......  I suppose I'm lucky in that we've not had flooding here - not like some parts of the country so I shouldn't complain.....

I've just realised that my card will fit in perfectly for the Play Date Cafe challenge this week, here is there board:-

So I hope its OK that I've edited this post to add this link!

Enjoy the rest of the wet weekend and catch up again next week.

Less is More week 72 - Theme

Hi LIMettes

Well I'm running in at the last minute with my entry this week, I've been playing catchup since returning on Monday for a little break away.....Celebrating my 20th Wedding Anniversary!  Really wanted to join in this week's theme which is:-

We want to see
Something Shiny
So here is my card:-

My "shiny" addition is the embossed panel in the middle.  I embossed a sheet of craft foil.  I came up with the idea as soon as I saw this week's challenge!   I'm pleased with how its turned out.  The one thing though is the ribbon - IRL its a gorgeous cerise pink but I just cannot do it any justice in my photo.... Another mention please forgive me that the sentiment is ever so slightly off "skew" - but maybe you hadn't noticed - LOL!

Before closing off, I just wanted to say a really BIG thank you to everyone who left me comments on my last LIM challenge card.  It was the most comments I've EVER had for one post - I was so chuffed! so thank you very much for taking the time to leave me your lovely comments.

Until next time....

Happy crafting

Less is More Week 71

Hi everyone hope that you are all well.  Sorry I've not be around much lately.......  Anyway I've had a play today and created this card to enter into this weeks Less is More challenge which is


The challenge this week is to


Chrissie and Mandi have once again created some gorgeous inspiration for us all.  So here is my little card for this week:-

I don't know about you, but I just LOVE flourishes and have a few in my collection!  This particular corner flourish is by Fancy Pants and is in a collection called Pollen Dust.  Its a large 12 x 12 set that I got some years back - it cost a LOT of money but just for this stamp alone I just HAD to have it!!  I thought rather than stamping in black that I would for a change use my Versafine Deep Lagoon.  I also wanted to create more of a "whimsical" feel to the card so added the bird cage and little birdies (Craftwork Cards Gilded Cages).  The sentiment is Papermania.

Of course a card of mine wouldn't be without any sparkle so I added some Glamour Dust here, there and everywhere to the flourish!

Well enjoy the rest of your day, I shall be back around later to leave some comments for my fellow LIMettes!

Take care and until next time...
