Less is More ” Gold ” and Its a Dogs Life !

I feel it’s time to draw a veil over the sad events of the past few weeks concerning Rosy and Bailey I was totally devastated after the lovely ( former lovely ) Lynne of Adorn jumped on the bandwagon and sided with Florence, Vicky and Valerie. Up until now I had held these  Fabulous artists in high esteem and of course artistically I still do but I feel they have betrayed our blogging friendship and have come down totally on the side of the mutts. For anyone who is not quite sure what this is all about please feel free to read my previous posts . Florence even had the nerve to leave messages for Bailey and Rosy on my blog for all of the world to see ! how could you Florence ! Anyway as I said I’m drawing a veil over the whole proceedings that and the fact that the mutts have taken pity on hubby and I due to us both being ill and have decided that home is where the hearth is ( we don’t have a hearth but you know what I mean ) there was a mention of learning another language and Rosy being a French Bulldog decided Greek and English were already difficult enough to master !

It has been many a moon since I took part in a Less is More challenge but I do pop by every week to take a peep at all of the wonderful entries. Mandi and Chrissie do set such marvelous challenges and am always totally blown away by their inspirational pieces and those of the entrants. Yesterday was my first day back in my craft cave after a week of working all day and taking care of hubby, who now is on the road to recovery, thank you all for asking. Gold is the theme this week over at LIM a tricky colour to pull off but I see you have all managed quite superbly. I made a couple of cards and here they are……

I used my Cameo to cut out the feather, firstly onto heavy white card and used the negative space for the base. I then cut another couple of feathers with Gold mirror card . I popped up the card base with some foam and then placed the gold feather into the aperture , the sentiment am not quite sure who’s it is , I really must label things ! I had a couple of feathers and wasn’t sure if the card looked a little bare so I added a second one… what do you think one or two !

Right my next card am not really sure if I like it but I will let you all be the judge it was a bugger to photograph due to the reflection of the mirror card , well it is mirror card after all !

I made the heart from Fimo air drying clay using one of the silicone molds I made a while ago. When it was dry I rubbed over some gorgeous orange smelling antique gold paste by Pen Art it really does smell like oranges and I was really tempted to lick my fingers afterwards ! I used these fab frames from spellbinders to cut the apertures and then matted them up on foam squares to give dimension ,  a fab little resin flower in the corner and all done !

Please pop over to LIM to see the amazing creations and inspirational cards by Mandi and Chrissie and the rest of the LIM fan club. For all the tennis fans in the UK I bet there wont be much crafting done this afternoon as Andy Murray is playing in the Final at Wimbledon. Having missed all of the matches as Greek TV doesn’t show it I have spent all morning fiddling with my Mac and have finally worked out how to view it on line well at least I hope so !

No you’re not getting off that easily  ! I just wanted to share some photos of Rosy and Bailey, these are for the traitors, Lynne, Florence  Valerie and Vicky,  feast your eyes cos you wont be seeing anymore for a long time !!

Rosy feigning sadness !

Right I’m off,  sorry for the photo heavy post ( I’m not really ) have to tidy up the craft cave before Wimbledon as we will be watching it on my Mac and I think hubby might have a relapse if he sees the mess in here.
