Hello lovely ladies, super quick post from me as I have the “mange ” (well flu to be precise ) Last week upon my return from London I found both hubby and number 2 son a coughing and a sneezing. I of course being the compassionate person that I am called them wimps and told them to stop feeling sorry for themselves , only to catch the dreaded lurgy a few days later !!!! that will teach me !
I just wanted to share this little card with you before I crawl back into bed that I made for
the current Less is More challenge whose theme this week is Glamour and Glitz ! A bit tricky trying to combine CAS with glitz and glamour but here goes nothing !
I used Tim Holtz large and small rosette dies using various papers from my stash and my new ebosser to cut them. The larger one was dipped in Glossy Accents and then tons of glitter added. For the central embellishment I made a mold with some of that fun putty stuff and an old button ( can’t remember the name of it ! ) it sets in about five minutes then added UTEE that I had melted in my Ranger melt pot ( clear,white and blue ) filled the mold and five minutes later ta da ! The embossing and scalloping are all done with a fab new set by SU that I purchased by way of the lovely Vicky from Crafting Clares Paper Moments, I just adore it and am sure it will feature on many more projects to come.
Do pop over to Less is More so much to see and admire as always.
Right am back off to bed with a nice mug of hot cocoa 1
So beautiful Marie. Love this SU set – so nice. And the rosette from Tim Holtz is amazing.
Hope you are fine and your London trip was ok. Everything allright there?
Have a nice day
Sorry to hear you’ve got the bug too Marie as I’ve also been suffering since last Monday and have got to the coughing stage so I hope you feel better very soon.
Gorgeous card here and love the regal purple with the contrast to the lovely glittery flower.
Hugs, Fliss xx
Sorry nyou aren’t feeling well Marie. You should have had a flu jab while you were here –they are doing them at Tescos now!

Such an elegant design and gorgeous colour combo!
Hi Marie, I hope you’re tucked up in bed (with a hot whisky, for medicinal purposes of course), and that you start to feel better soon.
Your card is fabulous! I’d never think of doing something so luxurious in a CAS style but you have achieved it so perfectly. This is so luxurious and beautiful, and I love the main colour.
Take care marie
Really beautiful, I love the embossing and the layers and the rosette is gorgeous
