Less is More is Four years old!!!

Happy Thursday evening folks ......

What a busy week ...... I can't believe it's Friday tomorrow ...... and it's Friday the 13th too (oh no!!)

Not sure if I've mentioned it but, it looks like we're moving .... again!!!! I seem to recall I did say I wasn't doing it again but hey ho! here we are.
This place just isn't big enough now that the whole family is back.  I could give up my craft room but where would I put all my stuff!!!!  No .... there's no other way around it ...... we need a bigger house!
If things go according to plan we're hoping to get the keys to the new place sometime mid March ..... so that means the next few weeks are going to be spent having a good old clear out ..... craft room included!!  Not looking forward to that!!!

Anyway .... I'm trying not to think too much about it all yet .... we haven't signed anything so anything could happen in the meantime. Plus I have a trip to the UK before then ..... there's loads of time!!
I have however started making lists ..... things to do - old house, things to do - new house, things to buy, things to get rid of.  You know me and my lists.  I have a list of all my lists!!!

One of the things on this weeks list was the Less is More Challenge ..... I missed it last week (sigh!)
It's rather a special week this week ...... because they're celebrating.  Less is More is 4 years old ...... whoo hoo!!!  And boy are they celebrating in style ....... lots of guests/sponsors and loads of fabulous inspiration.

So what's the theme then ..... well it's a Colour Challenge, and this time its ......


Nothing to do with that film that's coming out at the weekend  I'm sure!  

Here's the second card I've made .......... had a little panic when I suddenly realised that I couldn't actually blog the first one because a certain someone would see it before weekend (yes ...... hubby does actually read my blog!)  
(Ooops!  now you know that you're getting a Valentine's card darling!  No need to feel that you have to go out and buy one for me ..... honestly!)

Anyway, here it is .....

CAS ..... pink and grey!

The pretty little bouquet of roses is from a set of stamps from STAMPlorations, designed by the lovely Shirley Bampton  (The Bees Knees range) ..... my teamie from the Craft Stamper Blog Challenge.

I stamped the image using Grey Versafine ink and then added colour with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, mixed with quite a bit of water.

I added the sentiment (from the same set) and used a paint brush to splash some of the pink ink around the image, before finishing off with a pretty satin bow.

I used more stamps from the set on the inside of the card too .......

along with more ink splashing .....

Congratulations Less is More on 4 years of challenges.  Thanks ladies for all your inspiration each week .... here's to the next 4 years!!!

Thanks for popping by ...... enjoy your evening.

Cheerio until next time



  1. Darling card, Linda. Looks like we had the same idea - single pink flower image on gray.

  2. This is simply elegant, Linda! Loving the splatters :)

  3. So soft and delicate Linda. Great use of the challenge colours! xx

  4. This is so delicate looking Linda... super job.
    Good luck with the move... I really don't envy you... the thought of packing up craft stuff alone is enough to give me apoplexy!
    Maybe I would find a few things I can't find however!
    Thanks so much for joining us yet again!

  5. Super, love the matching inside too

    Packing up? I'd be having nightmares! Hope all goes according to plan for March


  6. Super elegant and sophisticated card Linda and great use of the colour combo. Daunting and exciting news about your move although not sure packing up appeals to me! You are brave.
    Thanks for playing along with our 4th birthday challenge this week
