This weeks theme at Less is More is friends and I've managed to be a bit quicker playing this week than last.

I've made 3 cards which all sum up friends to me - not sure if one is CAS enough for Chrissie but I love the image so I'm including it anyhow.

This first one I actually made last week - it was for a submission to Paper Crafts magazine but it didn't make the cut so I'm free to blog it now and I think it really represents friendship.  It's from MFT Stamps and was coloured with copics directly onto a 3 x 3 card.  Wish I looked like that in my jeans lol!

This is my favourite image - needs no sentiment - you can see the friendship and every girl (big and small) has a furry best friend hidden somewhere ;-)  The image is by Belles and Whistles coloured with copics on blending card and popped behind a nestie cut frame.  I spotted a little cut in the card after mounting it - hence the button - embellishments can hide a multitude of mistakes and rescue a card from the bin!

This final one is by Penny Black with a sentiment from Kaiserkraft which is all about friendship.  I thought the two were the perfect pairing.  This time I coloured the cats with polychromos pencils and sansoder to get a softer blended look.
