Pinterest Inpiration

Happy Sunday.

This week Less is More has a cracking picture for inspiration this week:

If only I could still wear heels like this.

Anyway, I've gone with the colours of black and cream, and the slender heels.

I quite like the silhouette effect actually.  Have a good week.

Chistmas is coming

Well, maybe not quite yet but it's halfway through July already.  How did that happen?

Anyway, it's one layer week at Less is More and they have asked us for a card that is not square or rectangular.

So here's my little effort.  I know it looks like a rectangle but actually all four sides are not parallel and it sits on the slant.  I'd better show you both the front and inside, otherwise it makes no sense (I rarely do).

It's a digistamp from Bugaboo, with a little peeloff holly on the antlers.

I need some advice please, I know it's supposed to be clean and simple but the front looks a bit too plain.  I can't work out what to add, if anything, that would improve it without making it look busy.  All suggestions will be gratefully received.

Where have you been?

Oh wait, where have I been?  You've probably been here all the time, wondering where I was.  Sorry for my absence, we had a week away and just 'stuff' going on, nothing exciting, the usual humdrum work/housework/catching up on sleep.

Anyway, here I am, with a delicate grey card for Less is More.

I managed to get three shades with one ink, first by embossing it with clear powder, then two stampings without reinking in between.

Gotta dash, more housework calls, I can hardly see the letters on my keyboard, as the sun is shining on the dust and highlighting my laziness.
