CASual Friday CFC 49

  I've been watching and been eager to have a go at the CAS-ual Friday challenges for a while and so this weeks one had me finally joining in.
Had a new flower stamp from Sir Stampalot, lightly coloured and added glossy accents to it and teamed it with a stamp from stampin up's french foliage set.Left off a  sentiment though feel sure I'll use it as a thank yo card .
And thanks to a friend, finally managed to take a decent picture ...( well how was I supposed to know that the flower symbol on the camera gave you wonderfully clear pictures like this!!!:-D ) x

    This can be in any form you wish, faux stitching, hand written or drawn elements on your card, zentangle. As long as you create something with 'ink' by hand ...
                                                                                                ...Not really sure if my entry for the Less is More challenge this week  could be called doodling as such! I can doodle with the best of them when I'm on the phone or when I'm meant to be listening etc but on a card it just went pear shaped so ended up taking a roll of sellotape and used it to make a circle of dots, popped on a spellbinder circle die,and masked the flower inside it.The first one I did I painstakingly made all the flowers have a pattern on their petals but it hurt your eyes to look at it - so this next effort kept it plain and simple!
(Thank you for the kind comments last week and welcome to those who became new followers) Now off to see everyone else's creations x

Another site that was recommended to me was Out of a Hat Creations and they asked for boxes of any description,so as it's a rainy day here decided to give it a go.
Made the box (lid took FOREVER!!)This isn't what I 'd set out to do but then decided to keep it simple and I confess not really good at the inky ,messy stuff though I would love to be ,they usually end up in the bin!

Make a tag

                                                                                                           A friend  recommended that I have a look over at Artful Times a new blog that has started up as they were doing a tag challenge and I have been itching to try out this steampunk image!
Patchily the card with old paper distress ink - stamped with image with memento ink then inked again using versamark so that the chalks would stick added the sentiment which should be my motto just now!and there you have it ,
Oops think I did a bit of careless clicking and your only seeing half an image on the thumbnail ! :-) x

Three Shades of Green.

      Three Shades of Green.

It's a glorious afternoon here in Aberdeen!The sun is streaming in and I got a great picture of my card first time as well yay as my son would say, for the Less is More Challenge.... except it turned the lime green card I used YELLOW!!!(actually would quite like it to be that colour in RL) except the flower looks a bit silly because it was done using the lime green aw well .But there is still 3 shades of green there if you count the printed sentiment.....
Have a happy Easter everyone,
Now off to look at all of your wonderful creations !

Picture Inspiration

                                                                        Picture Inspiration!


     I've never done one of the  colour challenges before so didn't know if you had to use all the colours there or if you could  just select  a few!  So once again the  Less is More divas have came up with some thing new for me to try!
 I just selected a few(couldn't manage to get grey into it sorry)... had some new stamps and punches from stampin'up that I wanted to try so this is it what i made with them.Really like the hostess birthday stamps and the one that says 'Happy Birthday dear you !'  makes a great stalk - well I think so :-)
Off to do some commenting and thanks for looking x                                                                                                                  
P.s Don't know why but blogger has decided to add all this white and after half an hour of trying to change it have given up!!
