LIM 11, Acetate, OH Yeah!

Well hello, I hope all is well with you?


Chrissie and Mandi over at the Less is More Challenge have decided it's time we got our acetate out and had a bit of a play, I certainly had to think about this one, I'm notoriously messy and acetate and I, well I tried to keep it clean, honest!

I haven't stamped at all this time, just cut out some little birds and the motif from a sheet of  acetate that was printed and glittered. Tiny bling for eyes. It certainly took longer to think about than execute:0)

We had some brilliant news and are in a good place right now.  My son's got the job that he interviewed for back in January, phew! it's been a long wait but he's finally heard that it's his, so smiles all around today. Good to get some happy news.
We are having some workmen in the house for a couple of weeks so I might find it a bit difficult to get online quite so often, so if I'm not around quite as much please bear with me I will be here as much as I can. 
Have a great day my crafty friends

Paper from Little Yellow Bicycle, Bird Song ( bought at the Ally Pally show, and I found it very hard to cut into it, I only had the one!)
Glittered Acetate sheet from Kanban.
 Edited to add, Monika I'm sorry I've tried to reply to your comment but it keeps telling me I'm spam, LOL and I can't leave a comment for you I'm sorry, :0)

great card. I love that you used both the inside and the outside of the acetate card.I know what you mean about keeping acetate clean, mine was covered in fingerprints and bits of fluff by the time I finished. I had to wipe it clean before I photographed it.
