Less is More Challenge 8

Hi everyone, I made it back again, OK it took 2 weeks, but hey I have a very overgrown garden to tame and we have had lots of gorgeous weather so guess what took priority.

Anyway this is the card I made for this weeks Less is More Challenge which is a sketch. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to make a simple card like this, I tried all sorts of things and papers to come up with this. I wanted to use one of my new Lili of the Valley sentiment stamps and also one of the Nestabilities I bought at the Make It show the other week. This is from the Floral Doily Motifs set. The paper is one from my favourite designer Bearly Mine Designs, I love Donna's papers. The ribbon was some I had in my stash.

I'm sorry the picture isn't very good, but is the best I can do with the camera, I have a new scanner but the colours don't come out very well on it.

I Made a Card!!!!!!!!!!!

At last I have found time to make a card in between sorting everything and trying to tame a rather overgrown garden. This is the first time I have braved a One Layer Card but I wanted to enter my friend Chrissie's new challenge Less is More which this week is a One Layer Card with the title Off the Edge.
The stamp is from one of the new sets that I bought at the Make It show a couple of weeks ago and is from Sheena Douglas Cottage Flowers, coloured with Promarkers. The sentiment is from another set, this time Meadow Flora by Sam Poole, stsmped with Stampin Up Old Olive.  The card has a texture to it but I think it works OK.

Hopefully this will be the start of a new blogging time and I will be able to find more time for my Card Making.

Back Home

Well at last I am back in the UK and everything is unpacked, I even have part of a room dedicated to Craft rather than working on the dining table. I hope we will be able to stay here in this home for some time but as it only rented we may have to move again when we sell in Cyprus.

I am now sorting out all the goodies I bought when I was here at Christmas as well as the bargains I got at the Make It show in Farnborough a couple of weeks ago. Unmounted stamps to be cut out and mounted ready for use, new Spellbinders and Maranne dies to be tried out as well as a bargain Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set. I am going to have a ball.

Hopefully I will be back posting again next week with some new creations, need to get my creative juices going again,
