At last I have managed to make and upload a card. The past few nights I have been running my son back and forth to Glasgow and St Andrews. His car broke down on Sunday and it has been frantic since then. He now realises how much he is dependent on it.
This is a simple card but I love the idea of the hanging stars.
I have used Nesties labels, Woodware star punches, SeeD's sentiment, Cuttlebug Dots, acetate, and gems.

Less is More

This is my Less is More card this week. I don't have inks, so I have used my ink pads to make this card. Very simple, I only used Lavinias thistle stamps, Whipas, Brillaince and Memento ink pads.  Hubby takes the photos of  my cards and he moaned about this one, he said it was too much white and too little colour so he is not happy with the results.
