Mostly Words

I had a wonderful time in Guernsey last week. We stayed at a lovely hotel called the Old Government House in St Peter Port just a stone's throw from the town and the harbour.
Among other things we managed to go to a concert of a French group of Musicians, playing early music on original instruments... viols, lutes, baroque guitar and violin, plus one chap who played every size of recorder. It was terrific!
The weather was very kind... we had sun most days. Here I am on a beach, not quite warm enough to sit but splendid for a walk along the sand. I'm not exactly sure where this was... road signs in Guernsey seem a little sparce!
Here are my cards for this week's Less is More challenge which is entitled Mostly Words.

This card has a huge distressed sentiment from Lili of the Valley, heat embossed with Verdigris embossing powder and over stamped with an Inkylicious floral stamp in Encore Gold ink. The corners were shomped with We R Memory Keepers corner chompers.

This one was cased (plagiarised) from a card my son had sent to him... it appealed to me so I made one like it!
 The die-cut letters are from Memory Box and the rest is computer generated.
This last one is simply some Scrabble letters downloaded from the internet and cut out, then mounted on a black background. Once more the rest of the sentiment was computer generated.
Now to get back to normality and hopefully losing the pounds I must have put on in the last week. We had some amazing food!
