I have not had a lot of time for crafting lately. So many other tasks needing done and of course this glorious weather.
Today I had to make an emergency trip to the dentist. One of my fillings came loose right at the front of my mouth. Wouldn't have been a pretty sight if it had come out completely.
I made this card for my Niece and her husband's anniversary in a week or so time.

I used an embossing folder and Nesties, X-Cut hearts, and a couple of rubber stamps. 

I am entering this card into the following challenge:-

Less is More

I had a little play and made this card for the Less Is More challenge.
The challenge is Shades of Grey.
I have used Cuttlebug dots, Sizzix trellis die, Cheery lyn leaf, Marianne flowers and a PM charcoal pearl. 
I like the effect of the tones of grey.

Well done Andy Murray for his win at Wimbledon. It was a nerve racking match to watch, but I am glad I did. 

I am using my new LOTV stamps. My friend Vee kindly gave me a gift voucher for LOTV for my birthday and these are some of my purchases. 

I also used Promarkers, Stickles, LOTV bear and calendars, Spellbinders snowflakes, Nestie scallop squares, and I can't remember the papers.
