Star cards

Hi there friends, hope your weekend is going ok so far? Loving this warm weather we are having here at present, should be 24C on Monday too...whoo hoo...won't last of course lol !
Anyway I am just popping by to share my latest cards made for this week's 'Less is More' challenge.
They want us to use 'stars' this time and it's also the dreaded 'one layer' card week too. Yikes! ...my first thought was whatever will I make. Then I remembered an older stamp set I have with stars in it so I made a card using a few of the stamps in that set.

Of course when I had finished it I wasn't happy.....so I had another idea....like the LIM challenge...less really is more I thought......just keep it SS...or stupid simple! I found a nice sentiment stamp I like and silver embossed it. Then I drew a few stars and embossed them in silver too. A bit of watercolour in the background and it was complete. Am much happier with my simpler card ;)

A big welcome to all my latest followers also...welcome aboard and thanks for choosing to follow me.
I am back tomorrow with another 'reminder' card for 'The Flower Challenge', do help us celebrate our first birthday...there are prizes too! Of course as always....enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned ;)

Autumn card

Hi there friends, just popping in with my usual
card for this week's 'Less is More' challenge.
 
It's a colour theme this time and 'Hot & Spicy' 
This is what I came up with after a bit of 'faffing'
about.
 
My card is later than usual as it's been a very
 challenging week to say the least for our family.
Also we had our grandchildren to stay also.
 
I will leave you the recipe for my OH's honey
ice-cream below too. Hope you love it as much
as we do ;)
 
Enjoy your week whatever you have planned!
 
 
LIM, Spicy, CAS
 
White Linen card
Bristol Board white card
TH Distress inks
My Favorite Things Sentiment Label Strip
Lawn Fawn leaves dies
Waffle Flower sentiment dies
TH Distress spray stain Tarnished Brass 
 
 I edged the leaves with the brass stain
 
 
 
Just love this shaped die!
 
 
Honey Ice-Cream 
 
 
Recipe
(not sure where we saw original recipe, sorry)
 
Equal amounts of fresh custard & double cream
(We use the normal carton size of custard from either
 Tesco or Waitrose).
1-2 tea spoons Vanilla extract (to taste)
4 table spoons runny honey
 
Mix all together then chill in fridge for 30 mins.
Then put it in ice-cream machine to churn for
 20-30 mins. Freeze.
 
We just take a portion and add some crunchie bar
 crumbled up. It's so yummy, I guess it could be adapted
by adding melted chocolate and raspberries too?
 
My OH makes several different types, not sure of 
recipe for those but this is our favourite so far.
Enjoy ;)
