Wow, it`s still saturday and I`m here with my entry for this weeks Less is More Challenge, were Mandi and Chrissie want us to Take Three Challenges.By that they mean to combine 3 of the challenges set by them over the last 59 weeks.
As I`m still madly making cards for fundraising I thought I`d use this opportunity to make some quick, simple but affective cards to sell.
For my first card I used,
Week 1 Pink, Black and White
Week 15 Embossing
Week43 A Bit of Bling
I scored the pattern onto my card base using my score board, (not as difficult as I`d thought it would be), then stamped the frame from Waltzing Mouse Vintage Labels 4 in Orchid
The sentiment is from Layers of Color (Birthday) and Waltzing Mouse Say it Loud Winter Holiday (wishes) Stamped in Versafine Onyx. I cut this out with a labels 4 nestie.
One the label was placed I simply adhered some tiny pink gems to the where the lines crossed.
My second card is almost identical except this time I`ve used,
Week 49 Predominatley Purple
Week 25 Button or ribbon (ribbon)
The hardest part was trying to take a decent piccy.
We have beautiful weather here today but for the life of me I can`t get a good photo and all the tweeking with brightness and contrast hasn`t helped much either. Sorry.
We are trying to sort a date out for Angie to shave her head for the fundraising so as soon as we get this sorted I`ll let you all know.
Ruby got the date for her operation through today, 10th April so not too long now. Unfortunately that is her elder sister Charlottes 16th birthday, so it could have been better but Charlotte is old enough and sensible enough to realise that having her birthday a day early is a bit of a bonus.
It`s sometimes hard to believe how poorly Ruby is.Last night while I was on the phone to Cheryl, Ruby was mimicking her and giggling her head off. Then she decided to get her toy piano out and plonked away whilst singing " Para para paradise" at the top of her voice. At least she`s got her grandma`s good taste in music. Chris Martin, eat your heart out!
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
