Lovely LIM...

Hello everyone!! :)

Long time no blog again... sorry about that!! There's been a lot going on here since my last post... which I won't go into now or it'll be another six months before I hit 'Publish'!! I had hoped not to be away so long but had to take the decision to focus my limited energies on my health and blogging just couldn't squeeze in... :S I'm pleased to say I did manage to keep crafting, though, and now I'm back here in the Land of Blog, too :) And with a challenge card at that!! ;) Here it is...

Yes, I have finally managed to make a card for Less Is More... not sure I've entered since the lovely Jen joined Chrissie over there- I just don't usually seem to have the time/energy to get a card made, photo'ed, edited, waffled about(!) and posted within a week lately... :( Anyway, the challenge this time is to use metal and this is what I came up with... a charm plus some silver embossing powder and silver foiling on my paper- though I suspect neither of those last two count really!! ;)

I needed an engagement card and had fun with some new stash from Clearly Besotted as well as some lovely paper and long-neglected white organza ribbon- a bit of organza is always a winner for engagement/wedding cards in my book!! :)

{The List}
White A6 top-fold card blank - Papermill Direct Smooth White
First Edition Silent Night paper pad
Stamps - Say It In Style (ampersand), Paired Up (Forever) and You're a Hoot (Always) - all Clearly Besotted (with some 'stamp surgery' to get just the bits I needed)
Scalloped Edges Die - Clearly Besotted
Versamark ink pad and Silver Embossing powder
Heart charm - from my jewellery stash
White Organza Ribbon
Corner Chomper

Challenges: I'm so happy to be entering this at Less is More - Metal this week :)

Oh, how I have missed this... I have still been reading blogs but writing a post myself again feels wonderful... hopefully I will be back again before too long!! :) Thanks so much for stopping by today and for sticking with me through yet another unplanned absence!! :)
