Here's a card made for this week's challenge at Less is More

For our Theme this week we have chosen something this is very prevalent in Blogland at present... and that is
There seem to be all sorts in evidence at the moment from dies and stamps to embossing folders and even hexagonal shaped cards.
Made  from Chocolate Baroque Honey Bee set. Stamped with StazOn, coloured with Distress Marker, Wild Honey of course, and a little Stickles.  The large bee is decoupaged.

Thanks for looking

Less is More - Need for Speed

It's challenge number 123 at Less is More and a one layer week.
Our theme for your cards this week is 
Need for Speed
Don't forget that white space and do have fun!

For my card I have used the Tim Holtz Air Travel set. I stamped the plane and compass in black archival then masked them. I then stamped the map over with sepia archival. I've not put a sentiment on as I have Father's Day and birthdays coming up and not decided who to give this to yet!

A bit of me time..........

Every Monday, Glenda from Chocolate Baroque, sends out a Monday Mojo Newsletter.  This week, as it was a Bank Holiday, she challenged us to take time out and play with our crafty stash!
Well, it was a week off work for me but I had loads of paperwork to get through and then I wasn't feeling too good (about usual for me when on holiday!), but I finally got round to unwrapping a canvas that had been on my shelf since ..........well forever!
I gessoed it, I painted it, I messed it up, I threw it in the bin, I rescued it and decided to just throw everything at it and I quite like the end result!

There is also a "hand challenge" going on at the Chocolate Baroque Community Blog so take a look!
