Berry shades card

Good afternoon friends, it seems Summer
has put in an appearance again today.
Hope it's nice wherever you live ;) 


I have another 'Less is More' card to
share with you. It's a colour theme this
 time and......


Berry Shades



I came up with this design quite quickly
......don't you love it when that happens. 
Hope you approve ,anyway  come and 
have a closer look.


ps. Bit nervous making this card as I realised
I was wearing white trousers yet again !
Arggh will I ever learn.....anyway they
are still nice and white luckily ;)
 
 
I made a new blog header for August, you
may have noticed. I made several ,mostly
very similar, but just couldn't make my mind
 up which I preferred.
 
So I will change them every week just 
for this month ;)

 
Have a great week ahead whatever you
 have planned. We are babysitting yet
again ;)

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......
 

Snippets


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.....

good weather too wherever you are in the world.

 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

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 though.......at least
 Summer has arrived ;)



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



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 course.....do 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 !!!
