Yesterday evening I went and stayed at my friend Lisa's house for the night - it's been a long time since I've done that. It also meant it had been a long time since I had been spoilt and cooked a lovely English breakfast by her hubby Andy - delicious. This was then followed by a nice walk into Newton for a shopping trip. We picked up a couple of bargains in the craft sale section at Austin's and then went to the Craft Room where I picked up another flower punch and the Fall set of Tim Holtz distress inks. Once the shopping was over it was time for lunch before heading back to Lisa's for some 'playtime'.
Less is More challenge and I even got Lisa to complete a card for the challenge. Our cards are similar, but Lisa added hearts to her card to make it a Valentine's card for her hubby, whereas mine is a more general card. We used the SU Four Frames stamp set and stamped once onto the base card and then second stamped it onto a spare piece of card. The second stamped image was cut out using the co-ordinating SU frame punch and then we cut the oval aperture out of the stamped image to create the aperture for our LIM card. I cut two slits on the image on the card to slide the ribbon through and added foam pads to raise the aperture frame on top. The sentiment stamp is from a retired SU set Lisa had which I can't remember the name of so if anyone knows could they let me know please. I've gone for the monochromatic look again this week but used SU's Poppy Parade ink, ribbon and a scrap of card which I have punched a butterfly out of.
