2nd post - challenge entry!

Target acquired folks (new gas fire, that is), so I was free to craft this afternoon AND whilst watching Hornblower starring Gregory Peck - a great old movie.

For the Simply Less Is More challenge the theme is COCKTAILS and here's my take:

Personality Cocktail Recipe:

3 parts Courage

2 parts Difance (but I feel this may be a typo as I've NO IDEA what it means!)

1 part Cleverness

And a Splash of Passion - served over ice

so I clicked on the above link again and this time got .......

3 parts Elegance

2 parts Bravery

1 part Delight

And a Splash of Tolerance and Shake vigorously

First out of the gate was this card for the Simply Less Is More challenge ....

Materials used:
  • 5" square, 300gsm scalloped white card and matching envelope
  • Red holographic card
  • Sparkle 'n Sprinkle image inked in Memento tuxedo black on to white card and edged using a S.U. marker
  • Pro Markers to colour
  • Glossy Accents to give the illusion of the glass
  • Narrow white satin ribbon coloured using a deep red alcohol marker and tied in an off centre knot
Next came this card which was taking the inspiration from one of Cherry's photos over on Craft Mad and Loving It.....

Materials used:
  • 5" square, 300gsm scalloped card and matching envelope
  • Spellbinders nestabilities in three sizes
  • Silver mirri card, Purple holographic card and purple glitter hand made paper
  • Sparkle 'n Sprinkle image and sentiment both inked in Memento tuxedo black
  • Purple glitter ribbon
  • 3D foam squares

Hope you like the above - curry this evening, catch y'all later!

Fab card for LIM - a fun sentiment, A friend's daughter is now at uni and one of their organised social outings was a pub crawl, she is a very sheltered girl and doesn't go much in for drinking - she was showing her mum the list of venues saying that she had heard of most of them except the last which was "The Floor" her mum did get a good laugh as she explained what it meant and so did I when she retold it to me.
Lovely butterfly on the second card. Two beauties!
