Sweet things ...

I hope you are all having a good weekend ... I was until I wanted to write this post and my laptop decided that it wouldn't see my wireless network ... technology is wonderful until it decides not to work!!  I've had to resort to plugging it in to the router ... at least I had that option!!

Today's post is all about this week's "Less is More" one layer challenge - "Sweet Things".

A simple card ... once I remembered the one layer element!!

I used:
Distress Inks - Spun sugar, Fired Brick, Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberry and Tea Dye,
Clearly Besotted Sentiment
Simply Homemade Magazine free stamp set
CUTplorations Stitched Rectangle
Glossy Accents for the cherry

I'm entering the following challenges:

"Less is More" #332

Penny Black and More June Challenge - Anything Goes

Before I go I need to say a great big thank you to the design team at "Less is More" - they've SHOWcased one of my cards this week.  Thank you so very much I consider it a real privilege to be chosen.  This is the card they liked:

I'm off now to try and sort out the wi-fi ... I could be away for sometime.

  4. That beautiful sentiment really sets off your gorgeous sweet cake! Congrats on last week's selection as showcase winner - well deserved!

  10. I hope your wifi is behaving now, Elaine. It winds me up when things don't work (and I have no clue how to fix technology related issues!)
    Onto your card, and that cupcake is a stunner, it looks so yummy and you've chosen great colours. Fab frame detail too.
