Coffee Anyone....

Morning .... Today I have my card for the new Less Is More challenge.  It's One Layer week and the theme is Favourite Drink... Difficult one for me as I am pretty much only drinking H2O at the moment.
I ended up using this fabulous stamp from Lili Of The Valley to make a little card with a surprise inside!

A Starbuck gift card is hidden inside, perfect for those true coffee lovers!

I'm still working through the craft room and haven't had much time for it this last week so the desk os pretty much covered in stuff and everything is lying around.  My mojo is also lost in there as well as I am really struggling to sit down and create anything ... overload of new stuff (the SU order I placed last week as not helped in that).

I'm really hoping I can sort it all out today as it is driving me crazy living with the mess I created by pulling stuff out before New Years and work is so busy at the moment there isn't much time in the week to anything more than the gym and eat :-(

I'll be concentrating on sorting out the room rather than crafting this week but I will try and get some cards made in the chaos

Have a great Saturday... I'm about to get lost in stamps

Ombre Thanks

Morning LIMettes, we are back with another challenge for you over at Less Is More and as it's the first Saturday of January it's a colour challenge and I love this one!!


You can use any colour with an ombre effect!!

I had so much fun making this card.. Mixing up Rich Razzleberry re-inker from Stampin Up with some embossing past to get this gorgeous look!

It's finished off with a sparkly thanks sentiment and raised up on some foam.

We also have a fabulous new sponsor for January!


I'm hoping I finish sorting out the Craft room tomorrow so I can actually see my desk again!

Hope you have a fabulous Saturday

Birthday Bunny... and a new LOTV Challenge

Morning... I'm back after a few days off, mainly because my craft room is still a mess from my purging and mega sorting, labeling etc (which is no where near finished) so I am trying to finish that in spare time rather than craft so it is done once and for all.
The craft room move has been an epic adventure, but I have so much (too much) stuff and it really needs sorting and a mega destash.

Today I do have a card for the new Lili Of The Valley Facebook challenge which you can find here! This month the challenge is Anything Goes, a nice easy one for you.

I have used the super cute Cream Cake and shrunk it down in word to give you a very CAS card... I love it!!

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted and a favourite. It fits in perfectly I think

Hope you all have a great Friday!

Morning LIMettes, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  We have another challenge over at Less Is More for you this week and as it is the 5th week it is lucky dip with a theme of DIMENSION.

I used a super cute die from Sugar Pea for this card and built up about 5 layers to give it dimension on the card.  The sentiment is a favourite from Clearly Besotted.

I'm looking forward to getting back on track in the new year.  I haven't had much time for crafting since before I went on holiday in November and it has driven me crazy!

Have a fabulous Saturday!

Dear Santa.... plus tutorial on digi images in word....

Morning LIMettes, this week we have a 2 week challenge over at Less is More as it's Christmas Eve next Saturday!  The theme is For A Child, which gives you an amazing amount of options to chose from!

I made a couple of cards using an LOTV digi image... can you notice the difference between them?

and the second one!!

Did you get it?  I have flipped the image in one of them!!

I thought I would share a how I did this below....  There are some screen shots for you so you can see how I did this in word!

The first image shows you how to flip the image.. if you click on Format then you have options to rotate or flip the image!  Great if your little character is facing the wrong way!

The second screen shot shows you how to change the colours of the lines for that No Line effect.  I used this on the first card!

Hope you have a great Saturday.. I'll be back on Tuesday when I have returned from Vienna..
