Less is More GDT

Hello lovely peeps

I am thrilled to say that I am appearing as a Guest Designer for the next fortnight over at Less is More. They are one of my favourite challenge blogs and provide fabulous inspiration for CAS cards (which I am still trying to get the hang of).

The challenge this time is to make a One Layer Card with a Holiday theme.

To start off I printed the digi version of 'James Balancing Act' half way across a piece of A4 card (left margin 15.5cm, top margin 12cm). After folding it in half I cut it down to make a 5"x7" card.

I coloured him in with Copics
Fur: E50, E51, E53, E23, E25, E59
Hat: R32, R35, R29, R89
Present: G21, YG63, G94
Ground: N0, N1, N3
Outline: BG0000

The greeting is from the Large Christmas Greetings set (LOTV) and I stamped a few snowflakes over the top with third generation Faded Jeans distress ink (snowflakes from the Inkydoodles Christmas Ornaments stamp set)

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Cardz 4 Guyz #208 Christmas critters
Happy Little Stampers (Christmas) optional CAS
Copic UK Official FB Group  Anything Goes with optional Christmas
Simon Says Stamp (Wed) Baby it's cold outside
Cute card thursday #557 festive colours
Addicted to Stamps and More #319 CAS
 Crafting By Designs Something sweet

Thanks for stopping by,

Hello lovely peeps

Another card to add to my stash for men today, using Lazy Afternoon by Lili of the Valley, one of the old favourites re-released in rubber this month.

Ooh, and I must tell you about the fantastic Black Friday sale on the Lili of the Valley website - you can get a whopping 40% off and there's no minimum spend. There is also 40% off the digi stamps in their Etsy shop if you buy 3 or more.
