Less is More " Die cuts and Punches "

Good morning from bright and sunny Greece ! The sun has finally decided to show its face after weeks and weeks of miserable grey cold and snowy days ! Actually it quite suited the mood of the country ! In honour of this beautiful weather my body has decided to give me a cold  am feeling a bit woozy ( no gin involved )  and am back off to bed .

Less is More this week have a great theme for us and one of my favourites. Mandi and Chrissie are asking us to use  " Die Cuts and Punches " on our cards I made a few quick ones and here they are




This card was inspired by the very talented Wendy who is in the same Silhouette Flicker group. I used my Cameo to cut out the hand , the paper is Basic Grey Wander Paper Pad and I cut out an oval of the same paper and adhered it to a glass cabochon with Glossy Accents. I really like the simplicity of this card. Do pop over to Wendy's blog to check hers out.



Both of these cards where made with my Cameo, on the first on I embossed the orange felt and on the second one I left the felt plain. I really enjoy using felt on my cards it gives a lovely feel to them. I do hope these are not too bright for LIM but if they are please feel free to let me know Mandi and Chrissie.

Do pop over to Less is More as once again the dazzling duo Mandi and Chrissie have created some beautiful inspirational cards  .

Right am off to bed, wishing you all a wonderful Sunday and will pop by later on to visit after I have had 40 winks !!

Take care

Marie
