LIM Week 13 - Thankyou and Congratulations

Lady LIM and Diva LIM have come up with another non-scary challenge this week - just what I needed to get me back in the crafting vibe after my rubbish week off.  We never managed to get to visit our friends as my gastroenteritus went on for 5 days :-(   The lovely people at Travelodge did give us a credit-voucher for most of the cost of our hotel though so we can try again in a couple of months.

Anyhow, todays challenge over at Less is More is to make a Thank you or Conratulations card.  I've started with a congratulations, but I think I will be back with a thank you later too.


A really simple card today.  The congrats is a sticker from a baby scrapbooking kit I've been working on for my niece who is visiting later with her new baby, and I've paired it with a lovely soft pink shimmer card stock.  Rather than it being for a new baby though, I thought I'd make a congrats on your engagement/wedding card so I've just added 3 embossed pink heart sequins.  It is much nicer IRL -  I couldn't get the light right for the photo to show the soft and delicate hues.

See you later - happy crafting.

  7. Great card Tara, I have problems with taking photographs too, usually end up taking about 8 before I get a good one, and I have now learnt that natural light is best.
