Chicken card

Hi friends, I hope all is well in your world.
Yes it's Saturday yet again and so I have
my usual 'Less is More' card to share
with you.

It's a recipe this time and......


The lovely 'Queen of CAS' Chrissie's our 
glorious leader over at 'LIM' is celebrating a big
 birthday this weekend. (Ssshh .....70.......I know
 ...I know....I don't believe it either!!!) So anyway
 it's Snippets for Chrissie. 
Happy Birthday Chrissie!!

Hmm...... I pondered and pondered,  hunted
around in my 'snippets' pots......ahem...I have 
so many a few around. 
Then I saw this cute little  chicken die which
had been cut out and left to fend for itself.
I know Chrissie loves chickens so.... now I
 had a plan.
 I coloured it with some distress inks. Then I
looked through my box of snippets....yes I 
have pots AND boxes of them! Anyway I 
spied a few printed sentiments. 
I cut one out using a wavy die on both sides.
I used a bit of distress inking on the embossed
 chicken bits.I embossed  the sentiment too.

 I added a small star painted to  match the
 sentiment and job done.Chrissie is a star after all
isn't she ;)

Hmm does that chicken look as if it is heading
back up to the chicken coop ?.......I think so ;) 

ps. Have a lovely weekend, we went to see our
new granddaughter yesterday and we are 
babysitting  her tomorrow too. Our grandson is
 off to a party with his parents! 

Pleased to report that Amelia now smiles at me
 instead of just a puzzled look and a frown lol.
She has a middle name now too Amelia Ai-Mei.
 Ai-Mei is pronounced I-Mae, Ai means
 'Love' and Mei means 'Beautiful'. Her lovely
Taiwanese mummy chose her second name.
Mummies name means 'beautiful flower'
......isn't that so lovely ;)

Right enough rambling, come and have a  closer
look at my card.....

Blue Happy Birthday card

Good afternoon friends, it's a lovely sunny day
here today. So pleased that Summer has arrived
at last.
Lots of days at the beach now I think, ....our 
favourite place to be ;) I hope you all have 
good weather too wherever you are in the world.
Also hugs for all who need them too!
I have another 'Less is More' card to share with 
you today again. It's 'one layer' card week this
 time and the theme is .......
Oh my!!!! panic stations.....the two things I 
hate the most!! My first effort started out
not too badly..........BUT it all went steadily
 downhill after that , it ended up in the 'round' 
file of  course.
This was my second effort, I seem to be liking
 blue atm. Anyway come and have a closer look
if you dare lol!
Have a lovely weekend whatever you have
 planned. We are seeing our new granddaughter 
yet again and helping the parents out. I am
 cooking Sunday lunch again so a busy time
for me as usual  ;)

Congrats card

Good morning friends, another scorcher of
a day here again. 26c but feeling much hotter!!!
Not sure I like it this hot.... it's said 37c in our
 back sun lounge for several days lately. 
Daren't even look what it says in the 
front one as it's  smaller.
 I certainly boiled taking this photo there today,
and did it very quickly lol.
 We shouldn't complain least
 Summer has arrived ;)

Right onto this week's 'Less is More' card.
It's a colour theme this week and....

This is what I came up with, I found it a strange
combination but hey ho. I seem to be stencilling
a lot more lately too!

Enjoy your day and weekend whatever you
 have planned. I will be cuddling our new
granddaughter yet again...and taking more
photo's of course.
 I think Amelia already thinks my camera is
 just an extension of my  face....oh my! I made
lots more scrapbook pages of you 
want see another?.......oh go on then lol ;)
Sorry for the rambling YET again......come
and have a closer look at my card.

ps. Handy tip!.... not a good idea to craft in 
white trousers. Will I ever learn !!!

Enjoy Your Birthday

Good morning friends, it's a lovely hot and
 sunny day here. I hope you have good weather
Today I am sharing my 'Less is More' card.
It's a sketch this time and this is what I came
 up with. Sketch below my card btw.
I don't know how I managed to make a card 
as my craft room is a complete disaster area
 atm. lol. I had a tiny space and I just about
found room  to make this card.
I spent ages looking for a die set I had bought.
I found the empty packet but no die arghhh!
Does that sound familiar?... I found it under
a pile of card bits and pieces in the end.
Have a lovely weekend whatever you have
planned. We  were babysitting our older
 granddaughter  yesterday, she is so good...
although teething  again poor baby.
Tomorrow we are going to see our new 
granddaughter again, can't wait for more
I must have a tidy up right NOW!!!
First though come and have a closer look
 at my card ;) In a blue mood for a change
here.I could have entered this last week with
 the stencilling too....doh!
