This is my last post for Less is More for a while!
I am taking a break, as the pressures of travelling between here and Bath and Worthing to look after our grandchildren on a regular basis and an ever increasing vacation schedule, something had to go.
Since I created "Less is More" nearly six years ago, I have made cards for all of the 300 weeks that it has been existence and am really proud of its format and the support it has received over the years. As challenge blogs go, it is quite long lived and I know that with Sarah in the driving seat it will continue to flourish.
I want to thank everyone for their support over the years and hope to pop back in now and again with a card whenever I can!
This one is for the present colour challenge of Purple and Gold.
I had to have a play with my new MFT High Rise number dies and paired them with a sentiment from Cutplorations.
I enjoyed the jigsaw element of fitting the numbers together!
Ever since I saw the technique of smooshing, I really loved the effect and here is a card showcasing the technique, used behind a Sizzix die cut borrowed from my friend Anne, but hopefully a set of my own should be winging its way to me at this moment.
The butterflies are also from Sizzix,.. I borrowed some of these from my friend Val at the HLS retreat, but these are from my own dies purchased since then.
The Celebrate is from Penny Black.
Over recent weeks we have had problems with our internet service from Virgin. Apparently the number of users in our area is greater than the capacity of the system. Ergo our phones, iPads, laptops and computers simply drop the internet from time to time, often at inopportune moments. I have been very frustrated by spending time commenting on LIM entries only to have what looks like a page with the corner turned down and a sad face on it, saying that the site is down or something similar!!! The comments weren't even saved and so had to be totally rewritten.. Grrrrrrrr!
It is not due to be totally resolved until the New Year... which is not a prospect that I relish.
