Saturday once more .....

Morning peeps,

It's Balloon Fiesta weekend here this weekend but this morning's balloons were some way from us and even my zoomiest zoom setting resulted in pinheads hardly visible so ..... no pix this morning, nice day for it though, if you were up there! I still have another three chances so - just maybe!
For my regular readers who follow my ATC swap (with a buddy on the Isle of Skye) you will be pleased to hear that I received a new set of materials yesterday ..... "what did you get?" I hear you cry ......
Image by Art Impressions - some may remember my materials last exchange were the back view of this image!
Hmmm - now, what to make? This is what I made with the last set of materials (you can see the back view is pretty fab ..... but how to make the front view just as cute!
Hope you will stop by again and see how it turned out!
Simply Less Is More have set a new challenge this week and it is: NUMBERS - additionally, this week's challenge is the dreaded One Layer Card - glad I spotted that before I started, some weeks I've missed that bit till I've gone to enter!! OOOPS! I was going to enter one or both of these but I'm REALLY not sufficiently satisfied with either so will be having another go later ....

Materials used:
  • 11cm square card and matching sized envelope
  • Close to my Heart number image stamped using Memento London Fog
  • Cats Pyjamas sentiment stamped using Memento Rosebud

And my second attempt - I QUITE like them both - which do you prefer?

Materials used:
  • 11cm square card and matching sized envelope
  • Visible Image barbed wire image stamped using Memento London Fog
  • Cats Pyjamas sentiment stamped using Memento Rosebud

THIRD time lucky - I think I prefer this one ..... by a mile! Hope you will too - THIS one I think I will enter over at Simply Less Is More!!!

Materials used:
  • 11cm square card and matching sized envelope
  • Post Its to mask
  • Distress Ink in tumbled glass applied using an Ink Duster
  • Visible Image "ink splats" stamped using Distress Inks in tumbled glass, broken china and weathered wood

Have a great Saturday

So like the pink sentiment with the grey wire, perfectly CAS and very smart.

Will try to pop back to see how your little girl card front turned out. Brilliant stamps.
