Less is More # 87

Good afternoon All.

As it`s the fifth saturday of the month, it`s a lucky dip challenge at Simply Less is More
This time the theme is Love & Marriage.

I made a very simple card.I used the Swiss Dots folder for my panel and added a white ribbon and slider.
The sentiment is by Rubbadubbado stamped in clear ink and embossed in detail silver EP then cut out with a nestie oval.
I cut out some elements of the Fleur de Lis accents from SB and positioned them on the oval with a dab of glue. And that`s it, easy peasy and quite quick.

I spent the morning yesterday at the Macmillan Cancer Trust Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning ( try saying that with your mouth full lol) and took some cards along to help raise funds.
Although I only sold 8 cards, I met some lovely people and got some very helpful feedback. I now know that I`m seriously lacking in man and boy cards so  I think I`m going to have to concentrate on those for a while.
I did wake up in the early hours of friday convinced that no one would even look at the cards never mind buy any so 8 was a bonus and the feedback did wonders for my confidence. All in all I had a wonderful time and the little bit I raised can only help can`t it? The school is sharing the money raised between Macmillan and Candlelighters which is great and as soon as I know the total I`ll put it on here.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  10. I love your white on white wedding card Lynne and the accents look brilliant on the frame. Good on you for selling your cards at the coffee morning and whatever you raised is bound to be appreciated. Funny about male cards isn't it - there are a lot of those males out there having birthdays, retiring, needing luck, passing their driving tests, having anniversaries... ! Vicky x

  19. Very classy, I can never get buckles to lie correctly when I try to use them, even gluing them down doesn't work for me. Must have another go.
