Blue Happy Birthday card

Hi friends, just popping by to show you another
 'Less is More' card. In shades of blue this time, hope
 you like it.  
Busy day today, lots of cleaning/washing ( hate Mondays
 for that !), then our usual long walk in  the forest. It's a
 fast day today too so always feeling cold.
 
 
 
Various 'Stuff' off to the  charity shop today, including
 lovely gold lined little  delicate pale green cups too....I know
...I know.... but I don't need them...I don't need them!!
Helped our elderly neighbour who had had a nasty fall
 out walking. She was very shaken and  very bruised 
and sore.
 
 
 
 Lots of hot tea and pain killers/Arnica and she was feeling
 a lot better I am glad to say. No broken bones but I bet
 she is very sore and stiff in the morning. 
 
 
 
My OH wanted some new teeshirts  ( he is down a size
now) but wanted  a pastel shades/bright colour design
  on the front and NO writing on. 
 
 
 
Esp. no writing he said...."Why should  I advertize
 someone's product or place" ...well you get the drift!
"Why is it all the writing is always American too" he
 wanted to know. Hmm no idea I said.....but as he 
couldn't find anything I offered to design some for him.
 
 
 
Result.....I am having them printed as we speak so
 will show you in due course ;) He said I should start 
selling them lol as he was sure other men had the same
 problem. Hmm do they ??
 
 
 
Right ....oops ...sorry for the long post and waffling !!
Here is my card for LIM where the theme  this week 
is 'Mostly Words'.

I have another 'Less is More' card to share with you 
today.

Going for a suble green card today, hope you like the
 ombre effect.
 
 
 
ps. Been so busy sorting 'stuff ' in the house to either
 go to auction or to charity this week. 
 
Amazing how much 'stuff' you accumulate over the 
years isn't it. Anyway most of it is going as we are
 hoping to move house next year as I think you know.
 
 
I started on my craft room also.....gulp.....how did I 
get such a lot of 'stuff'.....well you all know the answer
 to that one I'm sure lol!
 
 
It's looking tidier  already and I even found enough 
room to make a card !.........happy days ;)
Enjoy your week everyone !

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.................:(
