LESS is not my usual style...

"less is more" is not my mantra, exactly (not sure if you could tell), but in this case, the Less is More challenge dictated that i could only place my stuff in one of five squares... it's my first time playing along over there, and i thought i'd try something new. how's THIS for minimalistic?!



so they called for only ONE square being used... can you tell which square i chose? hee hee. i faux-stitched around the edge, and hopefully that's acceptable given how little of the square i actually filled. ???

here's a close up of MINTY, from SomeOddGirl (my first time using Minty, who is actually now RETIRED):



isn't he cute?! that's a happy little candeh! i love the die-cut cards (they have packs for a buck at A.C. Moore!), and i have a growing collection of these, as it saves me trying to figure out what SHAPE i want my cards to be. :)

i'm totally getting my craft on today, so i may be back a little later after i get my homework done. i have a couple more cards to share, one in the works, and lots of colouring underway! YAY!

  2. Hi how are you?

    I noticed that you like tattoos, and I have a label in which I had some of my bloggers send me their tattoo pictures, so very funny...

    Anyway, I like your blog, and want to invite you to visit mine, and if you will follow me I would love to follow yours....
