Don't scrap it!

Have had a really busy weekend so only now getting round to posting this weeks entry to the Less is More Challenge -Don't Scrap it - is the theme.Card was one that had inky finger marks  so trimmed it off  and the rest is scrap and think I've got even more now cos kept cutting it squint !!

 This was my first attempt had intended to use just paper(and useless at patterned paper not like Mandi  so think I need a tutorial on that please :-) ) and then I got carried away a bit until it was no use for the challenge!But did have fun hee he and will be a perfect retro card for a family friend (another male of course)

Quick edit no your eyes haven't gone all funny think I've "picasa'd "( you know what I mean!) the cards a bit tooo much !!

Punches and diecuts


When I saw that this weeks challenge at Less is More  was Punches and Diecuts couldn't help but be chuffed as had just happened to have made this one the night before!( Heart punch from stamping up)
Really simple I know but what is it they say LESS IS MORE.... hee he!
Down side is taking the photograph did dark background first- looked awful ,light background the card faded into it ! gave up went to bed and it must have  been the snow that fell last night because managed to finally get one that I was reasonably happy with.
      Thanks for looking and now off to have  look at all the other LIMettes creations x

This is the first time that I have  tried the Flutterby Wednesday  Challenge but as I seem to be using butterflies a lot just now on my cards thought that I would give it a go!
Quick edit....
Wasn't happy with the card in the light of day so decided to go for a heart and flowers theme,
also added a bit more black to the flowers 
so that they stood out a bit more which they do in RL.

L= 2 or more Layers
O= have an Odd number of embellishments
V=have the color Violet on your creation
E= you can use any color Except red and  - of course a butterfly!

Hopefully I meet all of this! Thanks for looking x

Glorious Greens

   When I saw the colour challenge at Gingersnap Creations was green found myself struggling to come up with anything -least favourite colour except ,do love lime green!
But really wanted to take part so decided to do a tag using only the dies and folders of my cuttle bug so plenty of texture 3D effects with the butterflies and then as it evolved  I realised  that this would be great (with a bit of bling added of course) as a tag for a wedding gift and as we have a spring wedding coming up would tie in nicely.So this is my offering for the challenge Glorious Green.



                  Well Diva's you sure now how to get us thinking on a Saturday morning!! this weeks challenge of stripes at the Less is More site had me about pulling my hair out -  until I remembered this stamp.Stamped it ,coloured it with promarkers, then drew some balloons.Printed off the sentiment in the font papyrus, ( thanks Mandi) thankfully it just fitted onto the card this  time - didn't want any more thrown in the scrap box!
Now off to take a peek at everyone elses x

       Happy 1st Birthday  "Less is More" !

                 I am so thrilled that my 007 card was  showcased this week ( so thrilled that I dragged the whole family up to look at the computer!! :-D )thank you Chrissie and Mandi and thank you to everyone that left kind words on my blog they are greatly appreciated!

This weeks challenge at Less is More is the colour AQUA ,love this shade! Had a Versa Magic chalk ink in Sea breeze (though it is much paler in RL) and thought it would look pretty as a baby card but just don't seem to have the knack with baby cards!after various tries this is it - not really happy with it the ribbon should have been white and should have stuck to the principle less is more! but aw well and thanks Mandi used the same font and can see why it's a favourite
Now off to have look see at everyone else's cards x
