Dancing fairy card

Hello playmates ! how are we today? it's a 
rather grey day here , where has that sun gone!
 
 
 Anyway I have another 'Less is More' card
to share with you again. The theme this week is...
 
 
 
FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE
 
"For this your card can have any reference to either
 music or dancing in some form. It should give you
 plenty of scope to let your  imaginations run!"
This is what I came up with...and no pink in sight 
for  a change lol.



A big welcome to my latest follower too, welcome
 aboard and thanks for choosing me to follow.


ps. We had a lovely day on Thursday, a first
sail on our daughter & SIL's boat on the Broads.

 I was very good at steering too which surprised
 everyone.......including me! A pub lunch too and 
 temperatures  of about 24/25c .......happy days !

Morning coffee card

Hello playmates......(sorry an Arthur Askey moment
 there). You probably need to be my age and live
 in the UK to appreciate that one too sorry lol.
 
 
 
I have another LIM card to show you today.
This is what I came up with.......and NO that's
 not me.....although the pink dressing gown might
have fooled you I know!
 
 
 
  ps. We have been mostly making jam this last week.
Plum (our own) and Ginger jam and Blackberry jam
( picked from the hedgerows).
 
 
 No Elderberry wine  this year though as we are not
 drinking as much.Still got lots left from last year !!! 
This 5.2 diet plays a big part in that of course.
Another 2 1/2 lbs down again last week
............happy days ;)
 
 
 
I keep trying to summon  the energy to re-tidy my
 craft room too...just not  happening yet ! Have a 
good week whatever you  have planned playmates ;)

Cup of tea card

Hi lovely blogging friends, how are you all today ?
I think Autumn has started here, a definite nip in the
 air now.
 
 
Here is this week's 'Less is More' card from me.
It's one layer card week and the theme is....
 
 
BEVERAGES
 
 
I used a digi I found in my stash from BeyondTheFringe
 called 'Stacked cups'. Ideal I thought as I do love a nice 
cuppa, Earl Grey to be exact ! I also like a nice Cappuccino
 too (partial to a freebie from Waitrose) but going with 
tea for today here I think.
 
 
 
I do love pretty little tea cups, esp. with roses on. I have
 some very old ones I inherited but mostly tea sets
 which I don't use.
 
 
 
Although  I love them I plan on selling most and getting
 just odd  pretty ones I love.I have a beautiful cabinet to
 put them in filled with all sorts of inherited bits and
 pieces atm.
 
 
 
 Nice to be able to have our own things in it I think now.
My OH loves Royal Worcester but it has got so expensive
now as the Japanese love it too it seems.
 
 
 
Ooops sorry... I seem to have gone off on a tangent lol.
Here is my card anyway........well after this quick moan :)
 
 
 
ps. Handy hint ! just to add, anyone thinking about buying a new
toilet or bathroom suite. Make sure you buy a toilet with a 
NORMAL shaped seat. We just had to replace ours
 ( just the seat) ......£162.46.......yikes!
 
 
 
I know......I know ,but had no choice in the end. Cheap one
 we thought  would fit...didn't and  then broke. We had
 already thrown the  manky hinges away so couldn't put
 old ones back.
 
 
 
 
 New hinges we bought and tried didn't fit so.................:(

By the Sea card

Good evening friends/bloggers, I hope you all had
a good day today.I am late with my 'LIM' card as
we were on babysitting duties today.
 
 
 
A tiring day but also a very enjoyable one also :)
Lana is crawling now so I was kept very busy lol.
Anyway here it is, I just had time to finish it and 
get it photographed this evening. I am using my
new watercolour card too.
 
 
 
The theme this time is..... 
 
"We have another song theme which this time is... 
I do like to be beside the seaside!
Anything with a reference to the sea or the
 beach or things nautical will be fine as long as 
your creation is Clean and Simple!"
 
 
 
 Just a few layers of Distress ink to resemble the sea
 ( I hope) and a bit of added twine and stamping.
Loving the blues, makes a change from pink for me 
anyway lol :)
 
 
 
 The  seahorse and sequins just added a bit of 
interest too  I think. Hope it qualifies as CAS
 enough for LIM.
 
 
 
Hmm don't look at the card edge .In my haste I 
forgot to flatten the watercolour card before
 I attached it to the base card ooops !
 
 
 
ps.I am hugely pleased to see my lovely friend Dee
 (Darnell) is guest designer this week over at LIM.
 
 
 
 If you  haven't visited her before you are in for a real
 treat......Go visit and get  tea/coffee and biscuits ready
 as you will be there for ages lol.
Just to add I have been truly blown away lately
 with  all the talent of my fabulous crafting friends I see
 on blogs I visit. You are all awesome and I am so 
proud to call you my friends :) hugs V xx

Turquoise flowers card

Good afternoon , I am just popping by to post a quick
card today. 
 
 
I am babysitting my beautiful granddaughter
but she is having a nap just now so here is my card.
 
 
It's another one for the 'LIM' challenge which is a
sketch this week, see pic below card.
 
 
 
ps. Btw. we went to court and our burglar is pleading 
not guilty, so the case proper starts in Nov for 2 days.
Great judge though, he told his barrister he should think
 about pleading guilty !
