In threes ....

... Good morning all - it's going to be another brilliantly sunny and very hot day here in Northville.  It's only just after 9.00am and it's already 26C (79F)!!!  I've made a couple of card for this week's Less is More - LIM76 challenge.  It's the one layer week and Chrissie and Mandi would like us to use three of anything on our card.  I've made two small cards (UK A7 - USA 2 15/16 x 4 1/8).

The first card is a thank you card; I've used one stamp and three shades of pink - it's really clean and simple.


Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Cute by the Inch (hostess set)
Inks: Memento - Angel Pink, Rose Bud, Love Letter
Accessories: Card from stash

I played a bit more with my second card.  I stamped this sweet sunflower in a vase three times and coloured the images with Promarkers.  I added some bling to the centre of the middle flower and finished off with a simple sentiment.


Stamps: Pink Petticoat - free with Simply Cards & Papercraft
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Promarkers; Gems and card from stash

I am submitting the second card to this week's One Layer Wednesday - OLW96 which is being hosted by Susan at Simplicity.  I really should read instructions properly too - Susan wants Birthday cards with Bling - mine is simply for my Mum, because I love her!

That's all for now - see you soon.

I really love the simplicity of the first one Deborah - the square sentiment works so well.
For the first time in weeks it's not cold here today - hurrah!
