Happy Everything

Good morning all.

A quick scale and polish yesterday at the dentist...then a see you in six months! Unfortunately Mrs Officious was working and wouldn't divulge whether the boys had any appointments which they might miss whilst travelling so I guess hubby will have to ring up and change his name!

A quick card for today, the theme at Less is More this week is "Yellow and Green".

Background stamps are from Unity Stamps and I've used various shades of Memento inks. "Happy" die and "everything" sentiment are from Whimsy Stamps. Die has been cut twice from waste card and once from the base, after layering them all up they've been inlaid back into the base card. Stitched die is from Spellbinders. I've added a few gems to finish.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - yellow and green
QKR Stampede - bring on the green
Whimsy Inspiration Challenges - use a sentiment

  17. What a gorgeous card Carol! I love it! Sorry to hear the receptionist was so unhelpful at the dentist! Hope hubby has more luck! Xx

  18. Hi Carol,
    My dentist used to have a receptionist like that but thankfully she mellowed with age!
    This style of card is my favourite style just now, less is definitely more.
    Love every aspect of it.

    Have a great evening, hugs Erika. x

  19. You are certainly turning out some extra brilliant cards of late. This is another one, that I'm loving the way you've been able to add the waste cuts to enhance your master card. The way the letters blend in with the background design, yet have such dimension that it draws the eye, was a wonderful design detail. Love it! (TFS that link. I will check it out. That card was so impressive with the look and techniques you used!). Hugs

  20. A brilliant card Carol, love the design! Susan x
