Less is More - sports or exercise

Soooo... I did say I was going to keep up with all the Less is More challenges this year, so a little thing like the theme being 'sport or exercise' as well as it being one-layer week, wasn't going to put me off...


Well ok, so my card is just blah, but at least I've made something!  I might have another go later in the week, see if I can come up with one I like better.

I've been very lucky lately with quite a few challenge wins, and that stripy banner stamp is from a fab set that I chose from Uniko using a voucher that I won.  I stamped that first, then masked it and added the border stamp (can't remember the make!) and then a Little Claire bicycle stamp.  The sentiment is Personal Impressions, and I added some red pearls from my stash.

Feeling a bit sorry for myself as I've got a nasty chesty cough that looks like it's turning into a cold... it'd better get lost very soon - it's my birthday in a few days, and I know I've got lots of lovely crafty pressies coming... won't be happy if I'm not well enough to play with them!  Ooh and my mum's got me a Kindle Fire - I'm hoping that'll help me to keep up with blog commenting... has anyone got one, and do you use it for that?

On a positive note, we haven't got any snow yet :o)  Have a lovely evening!

  4. Well hun, I looked at your card and thought "she's done it again, clever little bug" - super card hun. Beats my uninspired effort into a deep cocked hat. Oh oh oh, birthday - a certain date has been hopping and skipping about in my head for the past couple of days - NOW I know why! Hugs, Sxx

But all sounds good... can't help with the Kindle Fire, use my Ipad quite often in the evenings for blog commenting... then OH gets fed up of having to explain plots to me on the programme we're supposed to be watching!! Well.... can't help getting carried away!
