'Frame It'

....that's the current challenge theme over at Less is More this week:
I used:

- A6 white card stock with corners rounded

- a snippet of brown card, with a slightly textured pattern, die cut with a decorative edged Nestie and then the centre die cut with a smaller plain oval Nestie to form the frame

- a Penny Black Stickeroo from the 'Flower Festival' sheet (just for you Kate)

- sentiment stamped using a stamp from Hero Arts 'Live Life' set and Brilliance 'Mediterranean Blue' ink

Job done, it had to be a fairly quick make yesterday due to a backlog of ironing screaming at me :(



  1. I wanted to say NICE JUGS just for the effect, but as there's only ONE jug, it rather ruined it! ~Sighs~

  2. Morning Di, Gorgeous card your so good at these LIM Challenges your image and frame is beautiful ....enjoy your day and have a lovely weekend "Weather Permitting" xx

  3. Very pretty Jug there Miss!
    I see you did not feel kind enough to do my ironing for me!! Hurumpf!

  4. I hope you've sent Sarn off into the corner for cheekiness Di! I love your die cut frame and it sets the single jug - yes SINGLE jug Sarn! - off nicely! I can't help feeling that you need to invest in a large pair of headphones to drown out the sound of your ironing! Vicky x

  5. What a lovely card... love how you used the frame theme. Thanks for joining us this week

  6. Lovely card - great use of the teeny Stickeroo. Just discovered that my local craft shop has rolls of Stickeroos in stock ... how tempting is that!!! Hugs, Elizabeth xx

    PS: really like that Hero Arts stamp too.

  7. I love the simplicity of this card, so effective. I don't have any Nesties as yet, so I need to get my Cameo out to cut some of these shapes and do without the embossing bit. I store my Splodge mat in its bag underneath my craft mat so I always know where it is and can grab it quickly. I reckon we will need sou'westers in the playground this week, or I will bring the boat and the canoe. Can I have some help to blow them up, and to rig the sails? You can all have a go. Seriously, off now to get the bread out of the oven - smells yummy. xx Maggie

  8. Hello to you too. Lovely stickeroo and goes so well in the frame.

  9. Lovely card...
    I so love one aspect of DH's retirement...No ironing.
    I had to iron a new shirt, dress pants every day. Sometimes 2 sets if he had a meeting late in the day as he was famous for spilling something at lunch...oh how I don't miss the ironing! teehee

  10. Simply elegant..what you do with those PB stickers...combined with your nesties - great card. Blue sentiment sets it off very nicely too. I keep reading about that Splodge mat...and wonder if it's like the Ranger non-stick craft mat that's big in the US. What you think???TFS a beautiful card.

  11. I love those simple sentiments.

    I don't iron. ANYthing. I mean it.

    When we first moved in together, we discovered that neither of us knew how to iron a shirt. HE said, well someone had better learn, then.
    I said, ok, YOU learn, as you are the one that wears shirts.

    To date, he goes to work in unironed shirts.

  12. Very nice Miss. Too cold to play out today even though I had me thermals on and a hot water bottle strapped to me middle. Hugs Mrs A.

  13. Fab! I couldn't think of a single thing for this challenge!

  14. I'm really sorry I'm so late in visiting, but last week completely got away from me.
    This is really pretty Di.
    Thanks so much
