Morning LIMettes

What a gorgeous sunny Saturday it is. I have a class in two hours so I had to sneak making this in between showering and drying my hair! Sat here looking a bit windswept and interesting at the moment. But I must get my weekly make in for Lady Chrissie and Diva Mandi over at Less is More first. Their challenge this week is 'congratulations or thank you'. I went with thank you:


I've used Crumb Cake card for my base and added a narrow strip of Pink Pirouette DSP. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Level One Hostess set Afterthoughts in Chocolate Chip. I punched the sentiment using the large oval punch and the frame is the sizzlits die lots of tags. I could have done the sentiment with this die too but speed is of the essence this morning and I didn't fancy trimming around the perforated lines!


I have added a litle row of self adhesive pearls but I don't think it's made it more is more - do you?

Right I had better go and have an emergency date with my hairdryer or I'm going to look like a scarecrow for the day. James is taking the boys to the hairdressers this morning, will be interesting to see if Stunt Baby will sit still for the event!

  3. Lovely card - I do like the pearls, but perhaps they stick up just a bit too much - perhaps some slightly smaller ones would be more is more? The sentiment is stunning :-)
