Less Is More!


Hi everyone I'm back with my second post today. For some reason even though less is more is not my normal style I am just drawn to the challenges at the Less is More Challenge Blog and even though I don't always get time to enter myself I love seeing fantastic inspiration from everyone. This week I have had time to enter the sketch challenge and this is what I have come up with. I liked this sketch so much I made the card in three colours! I am also entering this card into this week's challenge at Creative Cottage whoose theme is 'White Blank Space'.

Pollycraft Monday Challenge and a Few Wedding Pictures ....


Hi everyone, my blog has been a bit quiet for the last few days as it was my sister's wedding at the weekend so I have been away for a few days. We had a fantastic time, my sister looked beautiful and my little Grace was bridesmaid, I will share a couple of photos at the bottom of this post.

Anyway onto my card which is for this week's Pollycraft Challenge and I have set the theme this week of 'Swirls and Pearls' as they are some of my fav embellishments to add to cards.

The image on my card is from the new Swings and Slides range from Pollycraft and is called 'Cute as Cupcake' and I think this little girl is!
I am entering my card into this week's sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop and they also have the added theme of 'Sweet'.
