Pastel Thanks card

Good morning friends, a rather damp grey day here
today. I hope you have some Spring sunshine
 wherever you are.
As it's Saturday yet again I have another
 'Less is More' card to share with you.
Today it's a recipe and....
"Combine any three previous 
Less is More challenges
 into one creation.
Please note the numbers and title of the 
challenges you are basing your card on!"

 I die cut a few Paper Smooches 'thanks'
 sentiments and stuck  them together then
 added  a quick splash of  TH Distress
 watercolours.  I added a few clear gems
and job done.

ps. I am doing a big revamp of my craft room,
boy do you aquire a lot of 'stuff'  over the
 years!!! I am being strong and just keeping
 what I really really need.

I have a friend who will use my old stuff
and distribute to  various crafting groups
 she knows of. Charity and disabled groups
mostly I think, so it will all go to a good
 home ;)

I am still trying to improve my photography!!
I am getting to grips with my new camera,
( I hope). Mostly out of auto mode now and am
 using a  tripod ( yes OH ok you were right!!!).

I am waiting for a new lens as we speak.
Should be a birthday pressie really in August
 but OH said to  get it now.(Oh I do love that man!) 

It's been such a learning curve for me, so much to
 remember....lenses, white balance,f stops,ISO....
 but I do want to improve as I go. Not there yet this space lol !!!

Celebrate today card

Hi friends, just a quick post today. I had
another idea for a card for the 'Less is More'
challenge again.
We have to CASE a DT card this week and
I am choosing Sarah's again for my inspiration.
I used a die cut,  a middle sentiment, an edge 
to the die cut,also an embellishment either side of 
the die cut.
I think this card is suitable for a wedding too.
 Hope that is enough likeness to Sarah's card.
Anyway come and have a closer look at my
 card. See Sarah's lovely card below mine.
Ps. I have linked to the other challenges this
 time Sarah lol ;)

On your Special Day card

Hi friends, just popping by to show you
another 'Less is More' card I made.
We have to CASE a DT card this week,
I chose Sarah's card and went with the general
 wedding theme on her card, plus I used hearts
and silver.See her card below mine. 
(On Bloglovin it shows the card you CASED 
and not your card if you post it first btw.That
is why I posted my card first if you wondered.)
I used a bit of pink too ( so hard to stay away
 from pink....sorry!). I know it doesn't look like
 Sarah's beautiful card but I hope it's ok that I 
followed her general theme etc.?? If not I
will remove it.
I made another card too which is suitable for a
 wedding theme also, but again not really like
 Sarah's card.......hmm is it allowed??
I just got carried away with ideas........not pink
 though for a change ;) Anyway let me know if
it's ok to just go with the theme and I will post
 it over at LIM too ;)

With Love for You card

Good afternoon friends, late with my 'Less is More'
card as I have been on babysitting duties over
 the weekend. More on that later though.
 Over at LIM and the theme .............
"is for you to choose one of the DT cards
 and CASE it!"


"We would like you to say which card you
 have chosen  and if possible add a pic of it
 to your blog stating how you approached
 your design.  You might follow a similar
 layout, colour scheme,  subject matter or
 simply do a close copy of it."
I chose Chrissie's card , the layout and a flower 
scene at the bottom and a sentiment at the top.
I used a bit of watercolouring on mine too.
Here's what I came up with after a number 
of failed attempts lol !
Have a lovely week whatever you have planned .
Thanks for visiting me and any comments you
wish to leave  ;)

Giraffe cards

Hi friends, I hope you all had a lovely Mother's 
day  yesterday. I had a great day with lots of
flowers/plants/chocs/wine/cards and saw my lovely
 children and grandchildren of course.
I have a couple of cards to show you today.
I made the grey one first and wasn't happy
 about it....kept trying but just wasn't working.
Showing you it anyway....then I tried again
with the same image. Much happier this time.
I wanted to get the Giraffe peeking out from
 the frame. I think the bit of embossing/chalking
 helped too.
I still struggle a bit with one layer cards.
Sorry the pic is a tad dark but the embossing
 wouldn't show otherwise. 
Anyway I wish you all a good week, 
whatever you have planned ;)

Elephant with balloons card

Hi friends, I hope all is well with you all. Yes
it's Saturday once more and so time to show
you my latest 'Less is More' card.
It's  'one layer' card week this time and
 we  have to.....
I found this cute ellie in my files, it was
labelled 'freebie' but alas no name on it
There is a name underneath the
 image but I can't make it out. If anyone
 knows where it's from I will add it !
( found out it's a Tiddly Inks image,
thank you Susan )
I coloured it with Promarkers & the rest
is computer generated.
Have a lovely mother's day tomorrow,
(if you celebrate it). My mother and MIL are
no longer with us sadly but we are expecting our 
children and  grandchildren, so a busy
day ahead ;)
ps.Still feeling very tired with my drated Rh. A
and still achy but will improve soon as usual
in April as I always do.
 It didn't help having
my head sideways trying to do this sentiment
either. I do like tent fold cards though so.... ;) 
Have a good weekend/week everyone whatever
 you have planned. Thank you for all the lovely
 comments too, so very kind of you all and very 
much appreciated !
