Disco Diva

Morning LIMettes... I'm still not really crafting at the moment but this week we have a new challenge over at Less is more which is Stripes ...
I am still having to type up posts on my phone which is quite difficult

I have used one of the new images from lotv and this is one of the 70s girls


Once again I'm sorry I've not had chance to visit many of you , I'm off to California with work this week as the travel kicks back in after 7 months pretty much at home
Have a great weekend

Spring Hop

Morning LIMettes, hope you all are enjoying the long Easter weekend.  There is a new challenge over at Less Is More this week and the theme is Spring Walk.. How could i not use this super cute bunny hop stamp now available in digi from this months sponsor - Lili Of The Valley


Still crazy as ever for me so sorry I haven't been around at all the last few weeks, just shows how life can change at the drop of a hat...

Have a fabulous Easter weekend

Strength

Morning LIMettes another crazy week and no view of it stopping so still no crafting (luckily I was a few weeks ahead on DT cards)
It's one layer week at Less Is More and the theme is curves ... I went for a curve of flowers and curved edge of the card for a subtle approach

Hope you like it


The stamps are from altenew (cannot link as I am still using phone for posts) and I stamped them using the Misti in pale ink first, added distress oxide inks over the approx areas using a dauber then put it back in the Misti and re stamped with onyx versa fine over the top ... really love the effect and the distress oxide inks are amazing on the coloured card base

I've got a 3 day work week this week so hopefully Easter weekend will mean I can get back into the studio and have some R&R

Have a great Saturday xx

Happy Easter

Morning LIMettes

It's the first week of the month at Less Is More and we have a new sponsor with Lili Of The Valley and a colour challenge to use 3 pastels

I just had to use this mega seeet image how can you not love it!


I've not set foot in my craft room for pretty much 3 weeks now ... work has over taken my life due to some stuff that has happened which has meant long days and weekend working (I pretty have a policy I don't work weekend so that's how bad it actually is)
I'm hoping that this will ease off but for the next month it will be as bad !

Have a great Saturday ... hopefully I'll get some time to visit you this week

Hey, Chick!

Morning LIMettes, I have been away in Vienna this week with work so it's a little crazy. We have another challenge for you at less is more this week and it's to use a frame.  I still cannot get onto blogger using my laptop so iPad this time.
I could not resist using this cute chick from Stampin Up peeping out of the inserted frame !




Hope you all have a great Saturday

Washi With Thanks

Morning LIMettes .... blogger is really not playing nice for me this week, I have had numerous issues logging into my account again so having to type this on my phone is not ideal

We have a new challenge at Less Is More this week and it's to use Washi tape on your card. If you are anything like me you have about 100 rolls just there to look pretty and never really be used!
I decided to try something a little different this week ... here is my card


I used four different washi tapes (3 from SU) and ripped tiny pieces and layered them straight into my card base. It's finished off with a sentiment from MFT cut out of teal card stock to match one of the washi tapes.

Unfortunately I'm having to work through this weekend .. acrelly busy time at work means there are not enough hours in the week

Hope you all have a fabulous Saturday

Just James

Morning, I have one of my all time favourite LOTV characters for you today.. James. He is available over at Lily Of The Valley in digi format again.

This months Facebook challenge for is Flowers and to enter click HERE you still have a couple of days left!


Supplies:




I went on Faye Wynn-Jones Copic class a couple of weeks ago and it gave me the confidence I was lacking with my copics... I was still using them the same way you do Promarkers even though they are a different type of pen, so I thought I would give James some fur and a cloudy back ground.

Hope you have a great Monday
