Less is More #25 Recipe.

Good afternoon all. I hope the weekend has been kind to you.

I`m a bit late with my entry for this weeks Less is More Challenge.which is a recipe, Button or Ribbon.
Well you all know me and my bows by now so I was in my element, if only Mr Mojo would play along too...

Yesterday I had to go into town to get my shoes for the wedding. When I got home, groom to be son wanted me to help with seating arrangements for the wedding breakfast, nightmare!!! By the time I got into the craft room it was too late to do anything really creative. The whole of last week seems to have flown by in whirl for some reason and once again I have to apologise for not getting around every one to comment. I will try harder this week I promise.

I have four cards to share, hopefully making life a little easier for you on the commenting front.

For my first card I`ve stamped Flourishes Gerbera Daisies straight onto the card and coloured in various shades of yellow and orange.
I`ve then added a big blousy ribbon and bow in orange. It was so flippin` cold here yesterday I needed some sunshine from somewhere...










Next is a blue one. I stamped the Damask from Elusive Images ( now Chocolate Baroque) in Memento Bahama blue then over stamped the sentiment from Layers of colour in Memento Tuxedo Black.
Another big blousy ribbon and bow, this time in sky blue.
I`ve also added an embossed circular frame around the image but it`s difficult to see in the piccy.







My next one is a bit more delicate.
The Poppy stamp is another fromChocolate Baroque coloured with promarkers.
The sentiment is by Flourishes and I`ve finished off with a pink gingham ribbon and bow.
It looks a bit washed out in the photo but IRL the flower is quite a vibrant pink. Sorry.












And last but not least is this one. A bit different in that I`ve used a coloured card base.
Another one that looks washed out I`m afraid.
The image is by Papertrey and it`s called Autumn Abundance. I think the flowers are chrysanthemums and I`m not sure you can get purple Mums but call it artistic license lol.
Image coloured with promarkers. I managed to get a smudge on the sentiment which is why I`ve done a label. Some pale lilac ribbon and a bow to finish.

That`s it from me for now, I`ve been up since 5.40 ( I know it`s sunday and a day of rest but try telling my bladder that lol) and I`m shattered. I think I`ll go and see if there`s an old black and white film on that I can nod off to.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  1. These are so elegant! I specially like the orange ribbon, so sunshiney! I tend to think of CAS cards as using soft colours (dunno why!) and it's good to see something really bright! Great job!!

    luv, Mags x

  9. Hi Lynne, these are all gorgeous but I must say the orange one really jumps out - stunning!! Mandi's told me off this week because I haven't left enough white space :( That's the first time I think I've ever made a card that's not CAS enough, lol!!

    So annoying when you have to get up for the loo and then you're wide awake! xx

  27. What a roll you are on... all brilliant. Love the oranginess of the first one - so bright and happy. Something about orange that works wonders on the eyes.
