A big thank you to all my followers

The sun is shining and I have a few hours to spare ,thanks to the wonders of internet grocery shopping yay! and.....
This week the Less is More challenge is to CASE  IT (see below for the cards we had to case) it could be either one or both cards we could even combine them ! so that's what I tried to do and to try and challenge myself more I decided to case Jen's  card first making mine a colour ,rather than a white one as usual,never comfortable with doing coloured cards ! then did the paper piercing and cut out the sentiment. 
Then cased the new technique by Chrissie (check out the internet wow there is some stunning examples there too) but unfortunately the letter dies I have don't lend themselves to this technique ....so I took the easy way out and die cut some flowers and to make them stand out better for the photo I did the second stamped card slightly lighter,before popping them up n dimensionals
Really not sure about it feel it's a bit  *blah*  but like the technique and sure I will use it again but think a bit of practice is needed to get the right stamp and colour.
Everything used was from my stash or snippets (REALLY need to get the mound down its taking over now! )
Just off to take out the washing - this full time working is really eating into my crafty time , trying to be super organised ....that usually  lasts til about mid week then it all falls apart ! It was meant to be until the end of May but now looks until beginning of July .Aw well I'll just keep thinking about the crafty goodies that will be bought with the extra money hee he - then I'll be back to catch up with my commenting .
Have a great weekend everyone x



  1. Hi Jenni, what a great idea to exchange the letters with flowers. Looks wonderful.
    Hugs Claudia

  2. I should have thought of that as I don't have letter dies either. You've managed this technique beautifully, I don't thinks it's 'blah' at all and how great to use some scraps from your stash.

  3. Beautiful card Jenni, love the diecut flowers. I had the same problem too, trying to sort out a suitable stamp!

  6. Well done on combining both Jenni! I found this technique hard because I didn't have alpha framelits to die cut with. You've done a fab job with the flowers though. x

  7. This is sensational, it looks amazing!
    Thanks so much

  8. Great thinking with the flowers Jenni, using a punch would be much less faff than using dies. Very pretty card, love the paper pierced border. Xx

  9. Jenni, you did a brilliant job CASEing Chrissie! I can tell she was WAY impressed, too!!

  10. Wow Jenni - what a great job you've done, combining the two cards - the result is beautiful.
