Love & Marriage


The weather this weekend has returned to winter, it's freezing!  It was the Australian Rules Football finals yesterday and the best way to watch it was on television.  The conditions were Artic.  Hope you team won.

The Less is More challenge this week is Love and Marriage.   For this challenge there is a special guest, Susan Goetter.   She is always very inspirational and well worth a visit.

Here is my card
Supplies:  Glossy cream card, Embossed paper (scrap of unknown origin), Waltzinfmous frame, PTI sentiment, Alison Ellis embossing powder, Versamark stamp pad, Carl punch flower,s MS punch leaves and Kaiser pearls
Will also be entering this card in the following challenges -
Simon Says - Anything goes
When I first entered challenges I had trouble with the lighting.  It is uaually late at night when I am taking photos of the finished card.  Then I found a light box on sale and bought one.  Problem is I have no where to put it so it lives on the floor.  Now the lighting is fine but I don't always have the card lined up correctly because I lie on the floor to take the photo.  I not only have problem with my photograpy but the dog thinks I am playing and keeps jumping on me.  So my next purchase will be a small tripod.  I must also mention the cat likes to sleep in the box hence white hairs all over it.  All in all not very professional but I find it funny.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.  Take care and thank you for dropping by.
