Done in the nick of time

Hello again,

Well I made it, with time to spare too.  Here's this weeks Less is More Challenge entry.  I'll have to keep this quick, as I still have to get it all uploaded and the clock is ticking.

It's  Week 91 and we have a Sketch to follow ......

As usual Chrissie has come up with some fabulous inspiration cards, and there's loads of stunning entries for this week.  Here's my version ........

Finally, another Christmas Card - whoo hoo!!  Could this be the start of my festive phase, I certainly hope so.  This makes a grand total to date of 5, or is it 6? not sure on that one.  It's not many anyway.

I've been trying to use up bits and pieces from the old Bit Box this week.  It's overflowing with stuff at the moment, you know what it's like, don't want to throw anything away in case we need it!   I'm not doing too bad, this is the second project today that I've managed to complete without cutting into new sheets of cardstock.
I had a good old rummage around and manage to find a big(ish) piece of card coloured using my favourite cling-film technique.  I got the background panel out of it and all three squares.
The snowflakes are stamped with the brand new SU stamp set - Snowflake Soiree from the latest Seasonal Catalogue,  the sentiment is an old Butterfly Kisses stamp (I think).
I added a bit of glitter to the large snowflakes, and white pearls in the centres.  They don't look that sparkley in the photos,  but trust me, in the light they shimmer and sparkle nicely.
The little metal charm was a late add-on.  While I was taking the picture I noticed a tiny spot of  ink on the card - that'll teach me for rushing at the last minute!  I really didn't have the time to start again, so, on went the snowflake to cover it up.  I hope it's not too much, we are supposed to leave plenty of white space, and embellies to a minimum.  I think it looks ok, doesn't  it?

On that note, I'll say Cheerio.  I've got the house to myself tonight.  Chris is off to work soon, and Stephen is going out on someone's Leaving Do from work (that's going to get messy no doubt!)  He won't be home until the early hours of the morning.  
So, it's a nice pasta dish for tea, a glass of red, possibly two, and a good old catch up with the soaps I think.

Thanks for popping by.  Enjoy your evening.
