Less is more.....

After talking to one of my lovely classmates at a recent Scrapbook Sisters class, I thought I'd have a shot at the lessismoore challenge. This weeks challenge is to combine 3 previous challenges.....ok I picked  Week 4 -3 squares
             Week 7- masculine
             Week 9 - a touch of red.
There are so many ways to arrange 3 squares on a blank card!!! - but in the end this is what I made!
(It is actually straight, it's my photography that's wonky!)

Big shoes

The girls in my family (big and small, young and not-so-young) all seem to be obsessed by shoes so I just love this image! Sadly, although I still love shoes, I tend to go for comfort these days! My days of platform soles (the bigger the better!!!) and high heels are a thing of the past, ah well I certainly made the most of it when I could wear them!
The gorgeous papers and flowers are Prima.

An easel card

Posted by PicasaI made this card for a very special friend. The cute Mo Manning image is really appropriate as she loves to cook - when my daughter was small she loved to sleepover at Auntie Rose's as they always did baking (and we all enjoyed the results!)
The photo is pretty bad as my 2 year old grandaughter insisted on 'helping' and kept moving the card at the crucial moment!
I'm using it for these challenges
mosdigitalchallenge -buttons and bows
bythecuteandgirly- in the kitchen
cutecardthursday- birthday
thesecretcraftersaturdaychallenge -doily
robynsfetishchallengeblog- easel

1 layout, 2 cards.

Good evening all!
This is a layout I made following sketch 198 from creativescrappers, a really lovely sketch.
The gorgeous papers were left over from a class at scrapbooksisters (I'm a really slow worker so I always have loads left over!!) I'm feeling really virtuous as I used the last bits and pieces to make the following 2 cards.

For this one I kind of loosely followed the same sketch as the scrapbook layout
( entering it for "anything goes with a button"totallygorjuss)

and then used up the last little scraps on this one! Had a lovely time stamping and inking!
Posted by Picasa(entering this one for "things with wings"guylou's )
Hope you like them!

Layers and lace

Posted by PicasaGood morning! It is still morning... just!  I am enjoying a lazy morning, I've  been reading, taken Maisie, my lovely Great Dane for a very short amble around the woods (she forgot how elderly she is a couple of days ago, chased a cat - it was teasing her! - and hurt her front leg -trip to vet- and now she's supposed to be resting )  and that's about it! I just love Saturdays when I'm not at work!
This card was made using a Lily of the Valley fairy stamp, Boho Chic papers,  doily and some beautiful lace.
Iwould like to enter these challenges

I'm off now to finish my book! Happy Saturday, everyone!
