OWL 44 Marta Dansie as inspiration:0)

Good morning everyone, the sun's shining here today, I hope it is with you too.
Today I have taken up the challenge offered by Susan at Simplicity and Chrissy and Mandi at Less is More


The OWL 44 rules are;

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of cardstock folded in half. No other layers of cardstock are allowed. Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum for a clean and simple look!

2. Find inspiration for your card on Marta's Pinterest Boards.


and my picture of inspiration on Marta's board is here
Thanks go to Susan for her continued interest in all things inspiring, love her challenges:0)

I would like to enter my card for the Less is more challenge, off the page.
My first entry on this challenge but I have been lurking for a little while, love to visit, great blog. Thank you ladies:0) xxx

Sentiment, Printworks, caring thoughts.

I would just like to say my thoughts and prayers are with Japan, the problems they have and are facing are just dreadful.
