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.

Happy Crafting

Love this card, Tina. Very CAS. We were in the flood area - it missed us by about 100 yards. Didn't put the heating on - opened a bottle of red instead!

This is lovely, but there's something quite lonely about it! I'm not sure if it's the colours or the sombre chandelier! I like it a lot, but it's a bit haunting! M x
