Less is More week 139-sketch

Afternoon from a soggy London town and nearly 10 days since I last posted anything! I even missed last week's LIM challenge which hardly ever happens unless I'm on holiday  :-O It was a busy week making several cards for friends birthdays and a new baby, practising my singing for the Shine walk at Battersea and several social occasions! Unfortunately I had a tummy bug on Saturday and couldn't sing at Battersea as I was scared to be far from a loo!!!!
On the up side Charlie came for the weekend and we had lots of fun  :)
Anyway I have three cards to show you so sit back, relax and check out my photos:

The LIM challenge this week is a sketch from Jen

and here is my Christmas take on the sketch:

I used Majestix twig stamp to create the wreath and Stamps by Judith for the berries and lights. 

This card is for my friend Carol, an ex colleague, and I cut a circle from the A5 card and a tiny frame to to add depth. I stamped the front using a new stamp from Ally Pally and embossed the front woth a dotty swirls ef. I stamped the flower three times and cut them slightly smaller adding glitter and gems. The flourish is a Marianne one.

Finally tomorrow is our 43rd wedding anniversary and we are off to London to the theatre to see The Commitments and have a meal and here is my card using the mask that I bought at Ally Pally. The heart is a freebie from Craft Stamper.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and you know I love to read your comments ;;)

All the cards are lovely, such gorgeous colours on the LIm card and lovely gentle shades on the second. I've just bought the stencil you used on the anniversary card so thank you for the inspiration :))
