A break from the packing .....

Happy Wednesday folks!

How's your week going ..... better than mine I hope!  I'm getting nowhere .... and FAST!!!
I really should be packing up the old craft room but ...... there's blog challenges to enter! (and DT stuff to do but ..... that's another story!)

In between packing boxes and having a good old sort out, I found time to play along with this week's Less is More challenge.  It's One Layer Week ..... my favourite, and the challenge is .....


And here he is ......

One layer, CAS, and lots of white space!  And for once, it was done on the first attempt - whoo hoo!!!  
One layer is not always that easy to do ..... no room for error (can't cover up those mistakes with a nice embellishment!)

This little guy is from a clear set of stamps from Penny Black (sorry .... no idea which one, no packaging!)

He's simply been stamped using Black Versafine and coloured with Distress Inks and water .... simple!

The sentiment is from a new set of stamps from IndigoBlu called Funny Bird.  It's a fab collection of words and sentiments suitable for all occasions.

Don't get me wrong, I love Facebook but ...... some occasions need a card!

Well that's me done for today ..... time for a spot of lunch then it's back to the packing.
I did the 'Man Drawer' this morning ..... we've all got one ...... a drawer full of 'stuff'' .....  most of it no use what so ever!  Well ours has been well and truly sorted ..... there's only the keys that I know what they belong to in there, packs of NEW batteries ....... the rest have been put in the bin, instruction leaflets for things that we actually still have, and all the mobile phones and chargers are going to be re-cycled!!  I love having a clear out!!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.

Cheerio until next time


PS ....... Thanks for the tip off Sarah (aka Sazzle Dazzle)!  I shall also be linking this little guy up to the latest challenge over at AAA Cards

This is a new blog challenge for me ...... it runs every two weeks and is based around CAS cards. 

Challenge #35  is all about ...... bare naked CAS designs  (how cute is that little tush!!)

My little guy isn't exactly 'naked' but there's not a lot going on there, so hopefully he'll qualify!

Thanks again Sarah ..... I always like a new challenge!
