Simply Less is More # 110

Happy Mothers Day to all you Mums in the uk. I hope you are all getting spoilt rotten. I have flowers and choccies and all my family will be here this afternoon so I`m one happy bunny :-))

The challenge this week at Simply Less is More is a One Layer Card with Spots AND Stripes on it.
Funnily enough it didn`t make me come out in a cold sweat this time. I thought about my Circles stamp set straight away. Unfortunately I`ve forgotten who makes them, I`m sure someone will let me know.

Simply stamped in Versacolor Orange, Orchid and Lime.
The sentiment is Papertrey Communique Curves set.
This must be one of the quickest cards I`ve ever made.

Just as I was about to fall asleep last night, this idea popped into my head.
Using my Microsoft Greetings 2001 software I drew the stripes in a bright Cerise then downloaded a sheet of Pink Petticoat paper and digitally cut out the banner.
The sentiment is from my PC and is printed in LamboHmk font.

A little note to let you all know that Callie, the girl that had her hair cut for the Little Princess Trust, has raised over £1000 up to now. I get a lump in my throat just thinking  about it. Bless her.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
