Hello I'm back!!! ( sorry)






Hello again, I've had another crafty day and made another card for Less is More or LIM, I promise this is my last submission, I will be good and do no more this week. :0)


 Loving doing the CAS cards.

Okay the remit was, Lucky Dip and either 'Thank you' or 'Congratulations.'
If you've missed this super challenge I suggest you pop over and Check it out, So many lovely inspirational people.
This card is really simple I stamped the background images and then layered up, with glue gel, the gentlemen and glazed their hats, bingo job done!
The inspiration for using the top hat'd men came from Paula's entry to LIM last week her card is stunning, it made me get these stamps out and create, so thanks again Paula!
A very talented lady!
Have fun my friends :0) xxx

Inks
Momento Tuxedo Black and Adirondack Earth tones Lettuce.

Stamps,
Tim Holtz Steampunk  which I bought at the Craft Barn
SU partial clock from 2005
Hobby Art sentiment cut from the Wedding Day stamp.
I used Diamond glaze on the gent's hats and Copics.

I would like to enter this card in the Crafty Cardmakers challenge, This week it's steampunk so perfect for my card. I found this challenge thankfully due to Paula's beautiful card HERE




I was extremely lucky to be awarded this lovely little fella, he was here just a couple of posts ago so I won't bore you with my 5 sins again but I would really like to send a great BIG  THANK YOU out to Chris B who gave him to me, top lady and sweetie, pay her blog a visit and she will make you so welcome. She has made some really beautiful cards and albums.
I find it difficult knowing who likes these awards. I'm going to pass this on to anyone of my lovely readers, all of whom are worthy. If you would like to take this award and pass it on, please be my guest :0)

love this, so much intricate detail to look at and so much depth! fantastic. I meant to do this challenge earlier but the piece I made ended up being perfect for something comin up so I've saved it. so back to square one!!!

This is stunning!
I think this blog is costing people money...we see things on other's cards that we really 'need' and bingo a purchase ensues!
Good isn't it!

I love your style of stamping, it's so creative and you are very clever with the types of stamps I'd love to have but wouldn't know how to use if I did have them. The way you've layered them up is great.
