Quick LIM Christmas

Hi - quick dash on here inbetween report writing. I'm working from home today and needed a break from the tediousness of trying to catch up with the paperwork that seems to be never ending. So I've hopped on to share my card for this weeks Less is More challenge. The lovely ladies' theme this week is a one layer card with

I made my card  when my mum popped over for a crafty session a few days ago. She had some tapestry snowflake stamps but didn't know what to do with them so we had a play and my card was created. While browsing the entries before writing my post I noticed I haven't been the only one with the idea of stamping through a heart template - including Mandi, but hopefully mine is different enough. I've used my new Martha Stewart Punch (courtesy of my Simon Says prize) down the edge, added a sentiment and a few touches of stickles !

Not a great photo sorry - it's so dark here today! Also sharing at Creative Inspirations where the theme is one layer cards.
Well better get back to it..at least we're nearly at the weekend !!

  2. You're right, it seems that Mandi's card inspired a lot of people this week Esther. It's a great technique, especially if you have a dearth of heart stamps.
    This looks lovely... pretty colours too.
    Thanks so much
