Another one for Less is More and exciting news!

I've had a nice peaceful crafty day today, made a couple of DT cards and my second entry for the 'anything CAS goes' challenge at Less is More... just trying to help Chrissie and Mandi achieve their target of 1000 entries!  I'm also entering my card for the 'clean & simple challenge at Totally Papercrafts.


I've used the fab flower image from the Funky Flowers set from Pink Gem Designs, stamped in 'pear tart' memento ink onto ivory linen card.  The spotty paper is Cosmo Cricket, the little flourish sentiment tab was cut with a MFT die.  The corner on the image was, of course, totally intentional and in no way because of a stray ink smudge....

And my exciting news... ooh I've been smiling all day!  The lovely Janet asked me to be a Guest DT for Pink Gem Designs, how fab is that!!!  So I'll be joining in with the challenges on the A Gem of a Challenge blog and playing with Janet's gorgeous stamps :o)  Oh and to make me smile even more - Dex came out of nursery beaming, with a gold star sticker on his top, because he ate all his dinner today... which has NEVER happened before lol!
