Woo Hoo, it's the weekend

Hi there,

How's your weekend coming along? Adjusting to the darker nights and mornings since the clocks changed?

Sunsets? Getting earlier too ...

I've found myself having to craft later and finish earlier but hey ....

Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to 3.75" x 5"
  • Two pieces of white card cut to 3.85" x 5.1" and coloured using a green alcohol marker
  • One piece of black card cut to 4" x 5.25"
  • Impression Obsession Christmas bough stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Coloured using Prismacolour pencils, Kaisercraft black glitter gel pen and Diamond stickles

I'll be entering this for the following challenges:-
  1. Simply Create Too - challenge No. 121 - CHRISTMAS COLOURS
  2. Simply Papercraft for all occasions - challenge No. 40 - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Addicted to Stamps - challenge No. 218 - HOLIDAY

And now for the LIM card ... sadly, the remaining co-founder of Simply Less Is More is standing down so this will be her last challenge as a full time member of the DT. I have HUGELY enjoyed these challenges since they started 6 years ago and would like to thank both Chrissie and Mandi as well as the current Design Team for the interesting and challenging themes they present us with each Saturday morning - long may it continue.

My card

I normally share a view of the back, front, inside and envelope of my make but I'm very short of time today as I'm off out with my neighbour, we're going to a Fall Festival (aka Craft Fayre) and I need to be outta here shortly. I will take a photo of the rest of the card and add to my post but that won't be till later.

I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. Simply Less Is More - challenge No. 301 - Colour challenge week - PURPLE AND GOLD
  2. Creative Fingers - challenge No. 119 - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Brown Sugar - challenge No. 223 - ANYTHING GOES
  4. Crafting with an attitude - challenge No. 21 - ANYTHING GOES
Back from my craft fayre and taken the photos of the card .

Have a great weekend

Two really wonderful cards Kathy, I love the snowy branch and the circles and dots are simple but really effective. Thank you so much for your heads up about Stamping Sensations as I hadn't realised, needless to say I was thrilled! Enjoy your Craft Fayre and have a lovely weekend. x

Pat said...

Sorry, I meant to say what a great sunset photo too. x

Fab cards Kathy! I love the simple elegance of the first one with that gorgeous pine branch stamp, so beautiful. And your Less is More entry is super, such an artistic and fun feel to it! Doodling in the middle scribble circle was a great idea and adds a lovely personalised touch. Thanks as always for playing along with us at Less is More :)

Looking at your LIM-card I was thinking that the golden line is so effective (why didn't I came up with that :)? ) Looks real CAs and so effective! And I love the first mailset!
It s a pitty that I can;t take the photo's all by gets in the way sometimes :) Have a good and fall coloured week!

You are rocking the challenge again Kathy! Terrific doodling on the LIM card and the sideways sentiments complements the cool scribble circles perfectly. A sensational card. Love your elegant and classy Christmas card too. Thanks so much for joining us at Less is More xx
