Simply Less is More # 165


It`s Mother`s day in the UK today so I hope you are all having a lazy ( crafting) day today. I know I am.

It`s a Lucky Dip week at Simply Less is More and the theme is ROUND & ROUND.
As soon as I saw the title of the challenge I had `The wheels of the bus` going round and round in my head all day ( and it`s still there ) so I just had to run with it,

This cute little bus is from Kaisercraft Little Toot set and I`ve coloured it quickly with Promarkers.
The dotty paper is from Pink Petticoat.
The sentiment is from Wplus9.
I`ve simply made a panel andcut a circle with a nestie circle die then placed the panel using foam pads.
I have made another card which I`ll post tomorrow but I couldn`t resist the urge to use this one lol.

My blog friend Viv asked me how I was getting on now that I have more time on my hands. Well...embarking on a mad spring clean before we go on holiday has taken quite a lot of time up. I didn`t realise how mucky the house was until I started digging it out ;) I have also started baking again. Not huge batches like I`d intended but I`ve made a couple of cakes ( lemon drizzle & fruit) and home made meat pies.I did have a catastrophe though. We were given a food mixer as a wedding present 38 years ago next month and it decided to blow up this week. I really don`t think it owes me anything though the amount of use I`ve had from it. I`ve done everything from liquidising baby food to making umpteen Christmas, birthday and just plain Victoria sponge cakes.
So all in all I`m loving every minute of being a lady of leisure although there still aren`t enough hours in the day. I really don`t know how I found the time to go to work.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. Wow 38 years...must have been a Kenwood? Lovely card Lynne, I like the offset panel idea. I had another song in my head.

  2. Lovely card - I had that song stuck in my head too, so my card has a bus on it as well.

  3. What a cute card! I can't believe you got 38 years out of a food mixer! they sure don't make them like they used to! I need to take a week off and spring clean my house, the dust is beyond bunnies!!!

  4. Love your rounds (all three)! Great design! Inky greetings, Gerrina

  5. Ah I see you've joined the ladies of leisure, congrats although it sounds as if you're as busy as ever LOL I'm not totally surprised, it was pretty much the same for me too :D This little card is great, I love the cute bus :D Gay x

  6. Great card thanks for joining us over at Less is More hope you will join in again next time.

  7. I have replaced my Kenwood reasonably recently too Lynne, what a work horse it has been!
    This is a fab card!
    Thanks so much
