take three challenges

Take Three Challenges  
My 'take' on the challenge at Less is More this week is 
              Bling (surprise surprise)
  Three Squares 
 (in fact when I actually looked at the  previous challenges I had about nine to pick from on my card alone!)
I actually made this card on Sunday ,it has taken me all this time to photograph it , the butterfly wings kept making shadows so had to try at different times of the day .
That and the fact that for some reason this has been a very busy week .But never mind the school hols begin at 4.00 on the dot for me on Fri, hee he and then hopefully lots of time to play!!
Thank you for taking the time to look x

survival kit

                                                                                                      Just had to share this,So chuffed with it !The teacher that I work with is getting married and I was tasked with making the bag that we filled with a fun assortment of things that are needed to survive in a marriage.... a button in case you need to button it, a duck for water to run off, etc you get the idea, brilliant idea .
 Hobbycraft are selling these bags in an  assorted colours pack at half price so snapped them up.Computer generated the sentiment(freehand font) made the two heart stampin'up bride and groom,more stampin'up heart punches for the 'confetti'  as is the lace 'garter' and added to the top some tulle material as a veil??? - the rolled rose is all my own work hee he x

                     Gave a cheer when I saw that this weeks challenge at the Less is More site was MASKING !! Perfect as have to make a birthday card for a friend and it would involve masking anyway ,also paperpiecing,glueing,stamping,dimensions, bling ...ah bliss!After last week when I was at loss for even one good idea seem to be teeming with them this week :-)
On to the card used Kanban stamps, the perfume bottle was stamped first then masked , then the two other bottles were added. Popped another image of the perfume bottle (this time highlighted with ice stickles- though they don't really show up on first photo) on top with dimensionals and did the same with the bows (that was fiddly).Then a bit of bling all done. But oh my taking the photo has once again  been a royal pain in the behooky Picasa didn't really help either so have just stuck it on, pity cause really pleased with this one especially as no.1son asked if I had printed it off! and I know that it's right up my friends street.

Didn't manage to make a card for the Less is More Challenge last week a combination of too much on , working and  no inspiration and must admit this week I'm struggling again though I did make two but as you can see not really inspiring ( love when a card comes together and you have that satisfied  feeling )this one just itches for me to cut it down and back it onto a piece of bright pink card but will resist!!!
The other one is french foliage and there's not much else I can say about it.
But might come back with another one later on on the week (was a hostess for a stampin'up party )so heaps of goodies coming this week -Yay, as my youngest would say
Now off to seek inspiration from the rest of you and sorry I didn't have time to leave comments last week x
