Less is More-week 123-one layer

Hi everyone from a chilly grey day in London town! Where is the sun? I'm back in long sleeved tops and thinking how soon I can power up the heating,  so different from earlier in the week.  Thursday was lovely we had tickets for Top Hat (very slick and Hollywood) and sat out upstairs at Brasserie Blanc in Covent Garden, fab meal :)
Anyway it's definitely good weather for crafting! This week's challenge over at Less is More is the not so dreaded "one layer" and the theme is NEED FOR SPEED.
I had a rummage through my stamps and considered a Xmas one with Santa rushing through the sky but came across a freebie stamp that I'd never inked and my card was born, come and see!

Square scallop card
Freebie stamp set
Promarkers and white jelly roll pen
Sentiment created with xyron digital runner

This reminds me of a friend who lives to shop so it may end up as her birthday card:)

Thought I'd just leave you with a couple of Charlie's holiday pics, not that I'm a boring granny!!!

                      Thanks for taking the time to visit it's much appreciated:)

This looks great, Val! Smashing CAS card, like your colouring and how you used a scallop edge card.

p.s. couldn't see your photos of Charlie.


I have this freebie stamp too Val but have only used it once! Love the sentiment you came up with - much nicer than the one which came with the stamp set!! Love the CAS design and the gorgeous colouring.

Hugs, Sylvia xx
PS: the photos of Charlie are not visible - awwwww.

Hi Val. LOVE your card. Definitely she looks like she has a "need for speed" ... great interpretation of the challenge! :)

Charlie is so sweet and always looks like he is having the time of his life :) Such a fantastic smile! The weather there looks gorgeous. Definitely looks like summer on the day those were taken. Loll xx

Your Charlie photos are never boring, Val, and neither are you! Your LIM card is outstanding! If there ever was a "need for speed . . .!" You've got all of us ladies calling this a winner as we can all relate! Genius!! xo, Darnell
