Less Is More week 33 ....take 3

Look at that - the Limettes have made it to 355 cards so far!!

Here's my third card for the challenge at Less Is More -

And look, no stamping!! Just a punched border on kraft card, a fabulous wooden bird from Kaisercraft and some lime green accents. Can you tell I'm in a lime green phase? Have been for some time now actually!

The little heart is a tiny scrap of paper made into an epoxy sticker using a Shape Studio tool heart. Fun to do!

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments and especially your good wishes for our niece Lucy. I'm happy to say that she is up and running around as usual now.

Less Is More week 33....take 2!

Here's my second card for the Less Is More 1000 challenge -

Love this sweet Teddy Bo digital stamp , part of a larger one. I've coloured this with Derwent pencils and blended with Sansador. Colouring is not my strong point so I am thrilled with the happy accidental way the fur has come out actually LOOKING like fur!!

Here's a little close-up -

Thanks for looking! I am really enjoying seeing everyone's cards this week :)

Less Is More week 31 - metallic

Hello, this week's challenge at Less Is More is colour - metallics and here's my card....

Metallics are a bit hard to capture aren't they? Here's a close up so you can see the silver embossed words and the cute little mirror heart. The base card is a gorgeous gunmetal pearlescent card too, a little lighter than it looks here and very pretty when you tilt it.

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments - I am off to see everyone's wonderful creations now!
