Less is More week 68 Theme

I was about to say "evening all" but my sister Karen says it reminds her of Dixon of Dock Green which just proves how old she is if she can remember that!!!
Chrissie and Mandi's challenge this week is to make a card for a BABY or CHILD. Here is what I came up with:                                                                                                                               

The stamp is a very old freebie from Craft Stamper stamped onto Sweet Pea BP from Craftwork Cards and the wheel is a button from SU embosslits. I matted onto a square from the same pad and added a strip of ribbon. The strip across the middle was punched with an Anna Griffin punch.

I've had a very enjoyable week, I was asked by my ex colleagues to judge their annual hairdressing competition at college, which is an event that I used to organise. I had an email from Tando Creative asking if they could showcase the card I made for my sister and today I was invited back for a demo session with  celebrity hairdresser Gary Baker. Nice to be back in a hairdressing environment although I don't miss the work :))
Thanks for visiting me and I hope you leave a comment so that I can visit you!

What a super baby card, I love the button for the pram wheel, and the stamp is just perfect.

Wow! That is Gorgeous! I love it! I am off to hunt through my Craft stamper stamps to see if I have it too. We have 4 people on Mat leave at work, so I need as many options as I can find!

Sounds like a fun week, I didn't realise hairdressing was your line of work!

Lovely card Val. Such a sweet pram which I've probably got somewhere...... and it's perfect on the BP with the lace border. Great news on being asked to do the demo session with Gary Baker.

I love your cute baby card Val. the colours are lovely and soft and the ribbon looks as if it's been threaded through. I like the button wheel too. You sound as if you've had a lovely week! Oh dear - I remember Dixon of Dock Green too - must have been a re-run LOL! Vicky x
