Artful Times go Less is More

Hello friends and followers everywhere. Today we have blue sky and sunshine and it even feels a bit warmer. I am hoping this lasts as my daughter and son-in-law are coming on Friday until Tuesday.

Well the Less is More style really isn't me though I did try it for a while but always wanted to add something as it didn't look right. Seeing as how Artful Times-well its predecessor, got me started with blogging I do try to have a go at their challenges every 2 weeks. Von and Neet are lovely ladies and also Oyster Stamps ,their sponsors, have lots to chose from if you win the prize.

I used an embossing folder on the tag then stamped a little flower and Butterfly by Chocolate Baroque and cut down a dream ticket. The tie is some very plain raffia.

Hope this is ok.

Have a great day everyone

Love Chrissie xx

Such elegant simplicity to this, Chrissie. Like you, I struggle with LIM/CAS, but when I see it I really love it - and this looks great to me.

It's more than ok...simple, pretty, and quite cheerful with a delightful message. I really like the embossing. It adds design and texture subtly creating a perfect background for the your message.

Blessings for more creative time,
