Hello Lovely card

Hi there friends, hope your weekend is going well so far? I have been busy cooking mostly today (making a vegetarian haggis lol and lemon butterfly cakes) ...yes a strange combo I know! pics at the bottom if you are nosey.

Anyway after all that I managed to make a quick card for the 'Less is More' challenge once again. This time they want us to 'Focus on the sentiment'. I did a spot of watercolouring then added my sentiment, a simple card I know...but it does fit the bill. I may make another.....

Bought new fabulous bedding btw. and I have designed stuff to go with it too...long story ...but more about that soon!

Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned ;)

(Warning...don't look below if you are feeling hungry lol!) 

 Lemon Butterfly cakes (I added freeze dried strawberries, lemon curd and vanilla cream)
Vegetarian's unbaked here....sorry not a great pic! (an experimental recipe...will report back) ...and yes having neeps and tatties with it...and even maybe a dram of whisky!  ...I know it's past Burns night...just fancied trying it. 

Boring fact......Robbie Burns is mentioned in our family tree, way back on my husbands side. His wife Jean Armour Paton was either a sister or a cousin of  Helen who is in our tree. Maybe that explains why my OH was so good at writing poetry in his past lol.

Your card is so perfectly CAS! Couldn't put less on the card I think, without losing intrest; it looks so beautifully subtile! Hugs, Gerrina

What a great way to use these sentiment stamps. I have them too and never use them because I find them so large to combine with other stamps.... But this is the perfect way to play with them! Thanks for the inspiration and Thank you for joining us at Less Is More!
