Less Is More Challenge

Morning folks...a quickie card made with a scrap that was probably destined for the bin but during the daily clearing the decks routine to enlarge my workspace from postage stamp dimensions to something I can work on...I had one of those rare lightbulb moments...could I use this for a challenge card...something that's been a rare occurrence in the cubbyhole of late so here's my skidding in by the seat of my pants yet again entry for this week's challenge over at Less Is More...

BLUE & GREEN
I'm chancing my luck a bit here...it's more grungy than less is more and shaded blue and green rather than 2 distinct colours but I've totally fallen in love with this gorgeous Winter Botanicals Embossing Folder from Sizzix and you may well be seeing it on a regular basis in the run up to Christmas


Step-by-steps are today's priority job...oh joy of joys...time to put the kettle on and look out those big girl knickers...see you all tomorrow to share the latest adventure from this "daft as a box of frogs" crafter.
Hugs Kath xxx

Hi Kath, you are right that embossing folder is gorgeous and your card is stunning with those lovely colours on it. Have a good weekend, my DH is 70 so I may be MIA for a few days as it is party time! Crafty hugs, Anne x

'Daft as a box of frogs' had me howling with laughter (try that with a jaw infection?? - brings tears to the eyes in more ways than one!) have a brilliant day with your big knickers & the olympics schedule!!

Gorgeous card Kath. I'm loving the embossing folder and the colour combo is stunning - I love the grungy look.
Think I may just have to invest in this folder. I shouldn't look on your blog, you cost me a small fortune. But, you are such a great inspiration. xxx
