The Winner & Less Is More!

The winner of the 'Funky Flowers' stamp set is No 30 Kathleen MC!
I used the random number generator to choose the winner
Congratulations Sweetie.....please email me at with your addy

Well I have had a right annoying day today craft wise
First card I made went into the bin....not a CAS one either as it took me ages to make
Ripped all the bits off before I threw it away of course......I felt it just didn't cut the mustard if you know what I mean lol
Left me feeling a bit drained afterwoulds.....card making always does even though I enjoy it
Anyway I then  had a go at the new challenge 'Less Is More' and this week you have to make a one layered card with the image off the edge
I used my 'Funky flower' stamp set again as I thought these would fit the challenge
This proved more troublesome than I thought too....I am just not with it today!
Mr Mojo gone on holiday I think
Here is the finished result

If you need some better inspiration pop over to DT girl Sandra's blog and see the lovely cards she made using the 'Funky Flowers' set for the 'Less Is More' challenge

My new 'Papercraft Essentials' magasine arrived to day and there was something inside which cheered me up

Jennifer said...

Hi Janet. Eeek!...hate it when that happens. I remember once a couple of years back when I'd spent ages on a card, then my daughter came along and gave the image a big cheesy grin with her red felt pen! I was not best pleased!

At least you salvaged your bits though!

Love your CAS card. Less certainly is more! I hope to finish my card using these stamps later. Have been busy the last couple of days finishing an Ellie card for today's F'n'F chall. xx Jenny xx
