A little less is more :0) And some happy mail:0)

Hello there and welcome.
Yet again it's been over a week since I was here :{ Hey Ho! I made a card, big smiles......for LIM!
I am so sad that Mandy has decided to leave, she will be sorely missed but I wish her the very best of luck with her lovely new venture and thank her so much with Chrissie for their unfailing commenting and all round magnificence over the last 2 years.

So onto my card, the challenge being colour this week was, Kraft and Kreme.


I have used stamps by Dylusions, 'Around the edge' and Inkadinkado 'Hearts and Love' I added the circles that have been stamped and then cut out of kraft card. Sentiment by Lindsay Mason 'Love That Binds'

Then I woke this morning to some very happy mail, both Sarn and Dotty Jo have been super lovely bloggy buddies and made me a very happy bunny! two beautiful cards.....
 The first beauty is from Dotty Jo at 'Just a Dotty Pudding' what a smasher of a card!! Expertly masked and inked AND I had a little surprise inside, :-D Thank you so much Jo, for thinking of me. You are a real sweetie, so kind and you cheered me up no end.
And this totally wonderful clean and simple card from my lovely thoughtful buddy Sarn from 'Stamping for Pleasure' You're so right Sarn, it's right up my street!! Lurrvve the colour combo and clean images, yum!!
Thank you very much for thinking of me.
Check out their great blogs if you have a little time, full of inspiration and don't forget to have a go at Sarn's Rudolph day challenge LOL
Thanks for stopping by, hope it's not too long till I get back again, hugs Gay x
