Less is More!

Hi everyone, I've been trying to write this post all morning. These pesky pups just won't lie down and behave today. If I leave them through where they sleep they lie down quite peacefully but I feel mean leaving them there when I'm at home. But if I bring them through beside me they just have a carry on! After I have my lunch they're going for a nice walk whether they want to or not.!! By the way my candy is open till Saturday. You can find the details here.

I found a new challenge called Less is More and I thought I'd enter my card there. The challenge colours are black, white and pink.

I used :-
Image & sentiment :- Hero Arts.
Card candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, nesties, ribbon.

Really simple and quick. I think I like simple and  I'm going to do more CAS I think.

Last night was my WRI night. My cardmaking buddy, Susan, went with me. She's never been to anything like that before and really enjoyed it. We're a small group and everyone is really nice. Last night we had a hand on with beads. The demonstrator, Linda, let us have free reign with her beads. Most of us made either a necklace or a bracelet and we were all pretty pleased with ourselves. Only 3 people didn't make anything. One of our members NEVER tries anything! She's a bit of a stick in the mud. One lady has quite bad eyesight and the other is 80 and her eyesight isn't so good either. Not so long ago both of these ladies would have had a shot. But they enjoyed seeing what the rest of us made.

Susan said "I'm not getting into this" but she is quite tempted and I can see us looking at the beads etc when we go to the craft show at the SECC next month!

I'll take a pic of my necklace later and let you see it.

Off to have my lunch now and take my mutts for a walk. Thanks for looking and hope you have a minute to tell me what you think.
