Rocker card for a teenager

Another download from The Clipart Fairy A rocker card from a range called "Rose Garden" As I wanted it for a teenager, I discarded the image it came with and used one called "Hannah"
I also dragged the the base out slightly so it would fit into a C5 envelope.

Audrey over the Top

One of the latest downloads from The Clipart Fairy I decided to make it into an easel card and added a couple of large die cut corners to the sentiment plate, to give it a bit more interest. With a little bit of tweaking I made it into an A5 card

And there's more..........

The second post for Less is More for this week, but the third card............ I decided to put a little colour into this card, although it is mostly lilac, not sure if this would fit with the monochrome theme so have chosen these three for this post

Wk 16 Butterflies
Wk 19 in the frame
Wk 23 Things with legs

The butterfly is from a Lavender and Lace set I bought from Kizzy Dizzy a while ago, layered twice for dimension comes out now and again.........I think it's great. The sentiment I computer generated myself to give the effect of a trail........

Here we are week 30 already

Doesn't time fly? We are on week 30 at Less is More
This week we have a choice..........we can choose a combination of three of the previous challenges. I am also a lover of white on white...........even more so since I've been doing these challenges. So these fit the bill perfectly.

I've chosen
Wk 13 Congratulations
Wk 14 White on white
Wk 15 Embossing

I liked the first one so much I made another!! (the bottom one was the first one)

LIM card number 3

I wasn't at all happy with my second card this week at Less is didn't really work out the way I wanted. But this one does................It's an image I downloaded this week from HERE
I printed the backing square straight onto the card then printed the birdcage twice and cut both out and stuck them back to back I then attached it with a very narrow black ribbon so that it swings back and forth...............Now this really does move!

Engaged under Water!!

Apparently the young man in question took his girlfriend to France on holiday, and while there talked her into going scuba diving, Where upon he planted an oyster shell and then found it. When she opened it there was an engagement ring inside. Awwwwwwww, how romantic is that?
Hence the shell with the ring in. This card is for a young farmer who does a lot of shooting.

102nd Birthday card

Well I made her 100th birthday card, her 101st and now her 102nd. has anyone made for anyone older?

Where does the time go? My one and only granddaughter will be starting school in September, it doesn't seem like 5 mins ago she was being born. After two sons and 5 grandsons, is it any wonder she is spoilt..........

The image is from here (Mo Manning digital pencil)

Another movement card

The second card for this week for the Less is More challenge.........I've got more time on my time last week, as I had 19 orders throughout the week.

For this card I cut an aperture and attached a cuttlebug cut and emboss bauble (which I cut and embossed twice, and stuck them back to back) with three jump rings. The bauble is cut from very pale green glitter card, but as per usual it doesn't show up on a photo! The greeting is computer generated. I may just pop an aperture of sage green inside the scallops to highlight them.

Swinging Spidermouse

Back to the grindstone this week. It's Less is More week 29 and the theme is "Things that move"
I didn't enter last week as most of my work is digital.............I just don't like stamping...full stop!! This week's entry is a digital stamp of spidermouse from Whiff of Joy. I drew the background web myself with promarkers. The topper is raised with foam pads to give a bit of dimension ( although it doesn't show in the photo)
I think it would make a cracking man's card!

Anniversary card

Quite a simple card. I made the topper up myself, with different elements, from a scrapbooking download, and mounted it onto holographic silver card.

Baby Girl Shoe Card

The template for the shoe was on one of the Kizzy Dizzy cards I bought a while ago. I resized it and used it on this easel card.................I just fancied a change!

At the start of a new week

Another selection of the clipart fairy's sets. The first one made into a rocker card...........I love the colours on this warm! The next one for a 9 year old I think, The grandmother is never sure so I don't put an age on.

For a 90 year old lady who is very arty and eccentric in her ways!

For a man who has refereed most part of his life, so had to use that as a subject.
