Bits Box

It’s a great honour to have been asked to be the Guest Designer at Less is More, one of my favourite challenge blogs.  Thank you ladies.

This week it is the Recipe Challenge which is to use an item from your Bits Box.
My Bits Box is large, so I was spoilt for choice.  The items from the box are the Chloe Stem and the butterflies.

Dies: Chloe Stem , Memory Box and Spellbinders Circle
Punch: Butterflies, Martha Stewart
Sentiment: Technique Tuesday
Card: Bazzill and UPM
Ink: Distress Ink for Background and Butterflies
Shine: Sheer Shimmer Spritz.
Tape: Mounting Foam

I hope the search in you Bits Box was as fruitful as mine.  This challenge has encouraged me to look into my Bits Box more often.

The Less is More design team, as usual, have come up with some very inspiring designs.

Have fun!

I had trouble with the Sahara Sand.  My greys were too blue and most of the browns were too dark.  So I settled for what I thought looked sandy coloured (looks darker in the photo).

A Dorothy Shoe

Years ago my sister and I used to sell our cards at markets and our best sellers were our shoe cards.  But it became a chore because we just had to churn them out with no time for anything else.  

Tonight for our third challenge we are revisiting this card.

My first thought was to make a Dorothy shoe (Wizard of Oz) but that came together quite quickly this afternoon so I made two more.  Today I enjoyed the process, no pressure. 

Here is the link to my sister's blog Card's & Co

Image and Sentiment – Stampin’ Up
 Ink Pad – Hero Arts
Card - Bazzill

Thank you for dropping by.
