Less is More wk 26 Lucky dip.

Good afternoon all!
I hope I find you well and enjoying a glorious weekend.

It`s wk 26 over at Less is More which means it`s a half year anniversary. I can`t believe we`ve been submitting for a whole 6 months. So, Happy Anniversary Mandi and Chrissie and long may you continue.
It`s lucky dip week too and we have been asked to make a CAS card using something fruity or with fruity colours. I have really struggled and almost didn`t join in this week. I have no fruit stamps or digi`s and I couldn`t come up with much from the various CD`s I have. I also have a rubbish printer so what I have come up with isn`t the best it could be. But, I didn`t want to break my run of not missing a week,so, while my entry might not win any prizes at least I`ve joined in.
Here is my card,
Just isn`t my day today, not only is the card pretty pants but the photo is too.
The image is downloaded from a Microsoft Greetings CD cut out with a nestie rectangle and raised on foam pads.
The sentiment is computer generated and is the best I could think of.


I think I`m going to admit defeat this week and hope for a better challenge next week lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  30. You REALLY are hard on yourself sometimes aren't you!!!! It's flipping brilliant - the sentiment is ingenius and would make fabulous anniversary cards - I always like something a little quirky rather than over the top hearts and flowers and this is PERFECT!
