Simply Less is More # 93

Good afternoon all.
I hope I find you well, warm and bug free :-)

I`ll start with a WOOHOO! And to say how chuffed I was to be showcased for week 91 at Simply Less is More. Thank you Chrissie ( and Mandi who is still so busy with her wedding shop).

On to this weeks challenge. It`s one layer week again and although they no longer fill me with dread, I still prefer the safety of a layer or two. Anyway the theme this week is HOUSES and joining Chrissie in Mandi`s absence is the lovely Jen 
of the Tiny Blue Butterfly blog.
Regular visitors to my blog will know that I rarely have stamps that go with the themes in these challenges and this week is no exception. I do not possess a single house stamp,sad but true. So after a bit of head scratching and a lot of raking about I came up with these,

 This is the second card I made. It`s a digi image from Beckys Place.
I love this image but mucked up with the colouring on the ribbon a bit. Any tips on colouring tiny bits with Promarkers will be gratefully received.
The sentiment is Computer generated.
This one is my favourite. The stamp is by Pink Petticoat 
and was a freebie with a magazine. Stamped in Memento black and coloured with Promarkers. I`ve added some fluffy stuff to the hearts in the roof and to the smoke from the chimney.
The sentiment is computer generated.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. two great card Lynne perfect for the LIM challenge


  2. Lynne, these are just fabulous! I love the mushroom house - I have that stamp!! I love the fluffy texture on the roof!

    For colouring tiny areas with my Promarkers I use the fine nibs - the great thing is you can pop any one onto any pen and as long as you scribble on a bit of scrap until the colour you want comes out, there's no contamination. I have 9 and use them a lot!

    love Mags B x

  10. I was delighted to see that you were showcased Lynne! These are wonderful - especially considering that you didn't think you had a suitable image! Vicky x

  11. Well done on being showcased Lynne! Love your card and, as others have said, the answer for your Pro Markers is ultra fine nibs. I did a big giveaway of some when they first came out......and still have spares back at home. So, if you email your snail mail address to me - di_wray@hotmail.com - I'll pop three in the post for you to try when I get home from Spain this coming week.

    Hugs, Di xx
