Simply Less is More # 97

Whoa, bad blogger that I am I haven`t been near the computer for what seems like an age. Too much to do and no time to do it I`m afraid. Anyway, better late than never with this weeks ONE LAYER challenge at
Simply Less is More where Chrissie and Jen are asking for IN A ROW.

It`s my bosses birthday on friday so I`ve used this as an excuse to get away from the endless Christmas cards that I never have enough of ;-)

I`ve used digi images from Pink Petticoat 
Mini Diva Doodles set, cropped and lined up in my editing program.
I coloured the flowers with Spectrum noir pens and added a touch of glamour dust and a couple of scored lines.
The sentiment is computer generated.

Right, that`s it from me today. We have a heavy frost outside and it`s flippin` freezing up in the loft so I`m off before I get hyperthermia :-)

Jingle Bells

Good Morning All!

Another quickie.

These cards were inspired by Jen from her DT card for Less is More last week.

All much of a muchness ( similar Darnell lol).
The bells are from a local haberdashery store.
I embossed the panels using 2x candy Cane folder and 2x Snowflakes folder matted onto matching coloured card. The bells are tied with either Twine or gold cord.
The sentiment is by Creative Expressions.
Nice and simple but I like `em.

Thank you

Morning All!

My posts this week are going to be very short and sweet I`m afraid. Lots to do and no time to do it, story of my life ;-)

Alan`s eldest sister was a manager for the company that he works for and when she died a couple of weeks ago we received some lovely cards and letters from various departments, one even from the managing director. Alan asked me to make thank you cards for everyone so I made a batch, all the same to send.

I seem to be using this frame style rather a lot lately but I do love it.
I used the small sunflower from Flourishes, made a mask and inked the background in Memento Bahama Blue .
Then I coloured the flower with Promarkers.
The sentiment is from There she goes.

Twins are twice as nice

Morning All!

One of the lads at work has just become the proud Daddy of twins, a boy and a girl, perfect. Naturally I had to make a card.

The image is from LOTV coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens.
Cut out with a nestie oval and matted onto a scalloped oval in lemon.
The gingham DP is by Pink Petticoat.
I added a strip of lemon card which I embossed with the Swiss Dots folder and also some stars cut out with a X Cut nested die and also using the Swiss Dots.
I`ve added glitter to the scales to give it a bit of sparkle.
Normally I would have added flowers but  the stars seemed more appropriate for the boy

Simply Less is More # 96

Good morning all!

I hope you are all well and managing to keep warm.
A quick post from me today as I`ve loads to do. The run up to Christmas is manic in the shop so I`m doing almost full time hours now which doesn`t leave much time for crafting let alone housework.

Anyway...The challenge this week at Simply Less is More is a colour challenge and in true festive spirit ( and to help with those last minute christmas cards) the colours are, RED & GREEN.

I made the first card on thursday but didn`t post it so thought I`d cheat a bit but now I`m not sure about the inky background. What do you think?

I like the card but I think the inking is too yellow. So.. I made another one...
But now I`m not sure about this one. Should have stuck to the original design I think.

Stamp...Holly Swirl by Inkadinkado
Inks.......Memento Dandelion, Versacolor Fresh Green, Evergreen. TH DI Shabby Shutters, Antique Linen
Clear embossing ink and dark green EP.
Sentiments...Chocolate Baroque Deck the Halls set and Creative Expressions
Red gems from stash
