Good afternoon all!
So I decided to have a little look at the Less Is More challenge today, seeing as I have been back in my craft room the last few days, and even blogged, and I was gobsmacked to see that it is their 300th challenge today! Wow! I remember joining in on one of their very first challenges way back when I first started crafting! So I really did have to make something for their challenge, which is 

Celebrations and Festivals

So here is what I came up with...

I used the really gorgeous All God's Grace stamp set, which I turn to so often for Baptism, Christening and Confirmation cards. I heat embossed the cross with Silver Stampin' Emboss before fussy cutting it out amd popping it up on Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Silver Encore, using the Stamp-a-Majig to position it perfectly. (yes I still use mine!) I finished with some paper piercing both under the sentiment and on two opposite corners, and a pearl.

I hope you'll pop over and see Chrissie and all the LIMettes and see what they made, and maybe even join in with their celebrations!

I also used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

Happy Saturday!!

Hello everyone! 
How are we all?? Wow I can't believe it has been so long since I've posted! Life has been a bit up and down, and very busy lately, but I have actually been crafting, I just haven't had the energy to blog as well. So I am hoping to change that somewhat and try and post some of the projects I have been making, starting with this one...

So this was pretty much the first card I made with this matching stamp and die set, Floral Phrases and Detailed Floral Thinlits. 

For this card I actually made stencils from the dies and sponged Gold Encore ink through them, then heat embossed the sentiment with Gold Stampin' Emboss. I finished with some lovely gold twine and gold gems from my stash.

So I said I have been busy and I feel I should explain. Over the last 18 months or so I have been studying to become a personal trainer, for which I qualified in February, but I didn't stop there! Nope! I also did a Level 3 in Exercise Referral, Level 4 in Obesity and Diabetes and to finish it all off, Level 3 in Ante and Post Natal exercise! So now you know what has kept me so busy! I am extremely happy to say that I have now completed (and passed!) all my studies, so I hope to have a little more time and energy to get some blogging done! 

Thank you for popping by, and no matter how busy I am, don't forget you can always order anything you need from the link on the right, including the products I used in this card.

I hope to back in the next day or so!
Happy Thursday! :)
