Simply Less is More # 220

Hello there,

Well I`m late with my entry for Simply Less is More Challenge once again, sorry about that. I`ve been swapping my craft room. It`s now known as Cards from the bedroom under the loft lol.

The theme for this week is UP, UP & AWAY.

I have a lovely teddy with balloons stamp but I`ve used it before for a LiM challenge and I wanted to come up with something a bit different. This is it,

Not quite sure how high bees fly but judging by the huge one that was trying to get in our bedroom window the other day, it`s high enough.

I used a Kaisercraft Hexagons stamp with white ink and white EP then sponged Spiced Marmalade DI and Marigold Versacolor over the top.
I then cut 3 hexagons using a Spellbinders die.
The sentiment is PC generated.
The Bee is from Pink Petticoats Little Bees collection. I`ve added a touch of Glamour Dust to his wings.

My daughter moved back home a couple of years ago and has been using the spare bedroom. My husband now works permanant nights so I`ve been limited to the amount of time I can get into the loft without disturbing him ( aluminium loft ladders are very creaky). Anyway , daughter now has a new partner who lives in York. My daughter works for the co-op and has now transfered to the York branch and moved in with new partner. I`ve taken this chance to steal her bedroom so hopefully I`ll get to spend a bit more time in the craftroom and a lot less twiddling my thumbs waiting for hubby to get up.
It was really hard work and has taken me almost a week to bring stuff down and take stuff up but it`s done now, barring a bit of sorting out. I did feel my age though, you know when you have a bright idea and your head says" Yay, go for it" but your body screams " What WERE you thinking?"
Time to relax with some crafting I think.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
