Underwater card

Good afternoon friends, wow it's almost the end of 
September now too! How did that happen?
 
Been sooo busy lately (more about that later)
 but managed to make my usual 'Less is More' 
card today.
 
It's a recipe this time and.....
 
 
THREAD
 
 
Luckily I had just bought this yummy Spider's
 web type stuff......well it looks very thread like
 to me lol.
 
 
I went with an underwater theme as it looked like
 waves etc. to me.  Hope it's LIM enough? 
Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned.

I am late commenting this week. This has taken
 up ALL my time lately.....so many burnt meals too
my poor OH!!!


Anyway here is a sneek peek at a card,
more details very soon ;)






My OH's lovely fairy castle is finished at
 last! here are a few quick photo's. My main camera's battery ran out,
so had to use little camera. May post better ones when I can.








We have visitors for a week too and
our son is moving house at last! They lost the
 one they were moving to, she withdrew at the
 last minute! So they will rent for a while, if
they can find somewhere quickly.

Enjoy your week ;)

Ooooh Viv, this is an exciting post! Firstly, I LOVE your LIM card. That thread is perfect for waves and you've created a lovely scene. Your new blog sounds intriguing and that's a gorgeous teaser pic... come on, spill! Your OH's fairy house is fantastic. I can see the effort and care that have gone into it and it looks truly beautiful. Good luck to your son. I've heard of so many friends having trouble with house moves this summer, more than I've ever heard before. Fingers crossed something amazing comes along really soon :)

Got here in the end, Viv! The spiders web thread looks great used in this way to create your underwater scene. And still plenty of white space too.
