Less is More week 87 Lucky Dip

Does anyone remember the song "Eve of Destruction" by Barry McGuire? I'm feeling a little like that song as my house feels like it's been turned into a grotty bed sit and worse to come tomorrow! I'm probably over exaggerating :) but we are having an extension which starts tomorrow and they are going to pull my utility room down to do it which houses my washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge freezer.  The dish washer I can live without, well I have two men in the house, but the washing machine is vital so that has been plumbed in where the dishwasher was and the fridge freezer stands proud in the middle of the kitchen! The dryer and dish washer are sitting on a board on top of the bath! Good job we're not short of bathroom facilities:) Roll on November.

Anyway I digress and here is my card for the LIM challenge this week which is Love and Marriage.
I tried a couple of things that I wasn't happy with and this is the final result which I feel is a bit ordinary but decided to post in case things get difficult during the building work:)

I couldn't get a decent photo to show the colour which was Spun Sugar would you believe! I think the close up shows it better.
Square card blank
Strip of swiss dots embossing
Sizzex hearts stamped with an old CS freebie, so old it's rubber with foam back!
Sentiment is a bespoke stamp made for my son's wedding.

Thanks for taking the time to visit,I love to read your comments

As long as you've still got your crafting space!! Joking apart, Val...I hate it when the house is disrupted, but I'm sure it will all be worth while in the end. I'm still waiting to get my craft room refurbished. I've had the new desks stored for two years!! It's the thoughts of sorting many years of buried stash that's so daunting.
Your LIM card is really lovely. Hearts are always a winner with me. I love the delicate spun sugar distressing and dots strip!
Try not to let the disruption get you down. November will soon be here xx

You have my sympathy but I`m sure it`ll be worth it in the end. Your card is far from ordinary. Love the delicate colours.

Valerie, I do feel for you having construction going on. I can't stand to have people working around my house, mostly because I always think I need to supervise them! LOL! The mess they make is probably the worse's hoping they get through ahead of schedule!

Love the sweet card..that's always a great layout design!! It's funny how the pink photographed so differently, isn't it?

Rosemary said...

This works beautifully Valerie, very elegant in its composition.

What a smashing card Val, I love the light pink and it looks very classy not at all ordinary:0) How exciting having an extension built and (I think) well worth the disruption because when it's all done you'll quickly forget the mess. Good luck with it all, Gay x
