Simply Less is More # 146

Hello All!
I hope I find you well and warm. I`m slipping back into being a bad blogger again, I`m sorry to say.I haven`t set foot in my caft room for two weeks. I do have a good excuse though as I`ve been decorating daughters bedroom in between work and Christmas shopping, and then there`s the catch up with the rest of the house work. Why is it that when you decorate one room, the whole house is a tip?
Anyway it`s done now and I couldn`t wait to get crafty again. The theme for this weeks Simply Less is More challenge is to use designer paper in a CAS way. Here is my entry,

Apologies for the rubbish pic, it`s a bit blurred, I think I was still half asleep when I took it.
I made a panel card, cutting a rectangle out with a nestie die and placed some Papermania DP behind.
The poinsettia is made using a Spellbinder die set and some yellow flat back pearls.
I haven`t bothered with a sentiment as the DP says it all.

I have lots of cards made up ready to post, I hope that things have settled down enough to get some time on the PC.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

Simply Less is More # 144

Good afternoon All, I hope you are all well and not suffering from yet another stormy weekend in the UK. We got away lightly both last week and this although it`s a bit blustery and very cold, the sun is shining.

It`s week 144 at Simply Less is More and the Challenge this week is FIREWORKS.
I really couldn`t come up with anything at all fireworky until I cut some stars out for a Christmas card I was making. More shooting stars than fireworks but this is what I`ve made,

I printed the sentiment on the base card from the PC then made a panel with black card.
I rounded two of the corners before placing it on the card using foam pads.
I cut some stars in different sizes from hot pink glitter paper using a X cut die set and placed those using foam pads too.
A better shot of the sparkle.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
