Less is More........More than One tree !!!


Just a very quick, easy card for the  Less is More challenge, I intended to find my tree stamps - I had them out, put them away - errr, somewhere - I really must stop moving thing around!!! I decided to use some stamps is from Indego Blu, a set called  'Here Comes Santa' and I stamped the Christmas tree on a piece of patterned DP from my stash. I add them a  fluorescent star at the top of each card and added the sentiment from the stamp set.

Everybody Art Challenge.......A Circle on the Card!!!



This weeks theme for Everyboday Art Challenge is....

A Circle on the Card

I have used a Elegant Frame from Crealies on which to sit the cute Fairydust Tilda. Tilda is coloured with the usual Copics.  I have also used some of my older Crealies and also made my 'Set of 3' flower dies - this took 40 indiviual dies and shaped them. I don't normally have the patience to do so many but - I made them whilst watching 'I'me a Celebrity - Get We Out of There' and the time flew. Perhaps I should spend the programmer making flowers!!  I have also got my sewing machine sorted out - I used to use them for all/most cards until I met a hitch, happily sorted - happy days!!
