Simply Less is More # 160

Good afternoon All!
I hope I find you well. The day started out lovely here, sunny and very mild with just enough of a breeze to hang the washing out, yippee! It`s clouded over now but there`s still a touch of spring in the air. I hope it lasts.
It`s recipe week at Simply Less is More and this time we are to use metal on our cards. I`m not much of a metal crafter so I`ve taken the easy way out and used a charm. I`m also still trying to get over my aversion to men cards so I`ve made another one.

I placed an order for some background stamps from Tara`s new stoe Make the Day Special on monday evening and they arrived very quickly on wednesday morning so I`ve been itching to get them inked.
I used the diagonal stripes from Paper Smooches Kissables 2 set stamped in Versafine Onyx black.
I made the sentimentson the PC and cut it out with a Die- namics Tag die, made a hole in the top for some thin black ribbon and hung a guitar charm with a jump ring before adding it to the card.
The stars are cut from black glitter card using a Sizzix die.

Thank you all for your lovely comments last week especially about Ruby. She had another round of X rays and scans yesterday and all is well.

Thanks for popping in Lynne xxx
