Less Is More

Hi Folks,

I haven't managed to enter many of my favourite challenges lately even when LIM last weeks was sewing !

I always find when I have missed LIM the first one back is a real challenge.  This week its a sketch at Less Is More.  The sketch looked great - inspirational cards from Chrissy & Mandy looked great!  Had a little me time today to make my card, went to enter and that's when I read Chrissy's description of her card - I had done very similar, I was going to change, but hey ho, its made!  I hope you don't mind Chrissy!

I made a few pieces with Winter Pansy's in April after reading an article in Craft Stamper, I love the way the big pansy has come through.

Thats it for now, and thanks for looking
