Less is More week 2 eeeeek!


Not so long ago I had a go at a few one-layer cards and decided I was RUBBISH at them... hubby would generally laugh at my efforts which didn't help.  I was never going to make one again.  But I've got it into my head that I'm going to do the challenges at Less is More each week, and this week is the dreaded one-layer card (with a flower or tree).  I shuddered, I sobbed, but I've had a go!  Hubby says 'it's not that bad' which is an improvement on laughing out loud...

The thank you sentiment is from Elzybells, the flower and dot stamp are Stampin' Up.  I've added some pearls from my stash, and then because it looked a bit boring, I outlined the flowers and dots with a Sakura clear stardust pen.

I'm also entering this at Totally Papercrafts where their challenge is clean & simple.

We've finally had a breakthrough in the potty department today :o)  Dex was 3 last month but has been stubbornly refusing to use the potty or toilet.  This morning when he got up his bottom looked a bit sore, so I convinced him to keep his nappy off and said if he managed to use the potty he could have a marshmallow... lol such bribery!  Amazingly it worked - he's done every wee on the potty today, and we've got through quite a few marshmallows...

  9. This is superb Lisa, I love the twinkle you added to it, love the pearls too.
    My daughter came to stay here for a week when potty training my granddaughter Daisy... a chart and lots of stickers did the trick for her... bit cheaper than marshmallows too!
    Congrats on Dex's success today!
    Thanks for joining us again, it's great to see you back!
