Less is More week 246 - Theme

This is the first time for ages that I've taken part in a challenge as I was accumulating so many cards and I do like to make personalised cards for friends and family. Anyway after my crafty refurb I thought I'd get back in the groove and of course it had to be a LIM card! Here is the criteria:

Autumn has decidedly started to make an appearance here in the UK.
There's a definite nip in the air and the trees are really starting to show off their autumnal beauty! 
There were some lovely cards in our gallery reflecting this last week too.
On to this week and our theme is simply

I double checked and it doesn't specify birthday so I thought I'd make a Christmas card, come and see:

I used a new MB die and the freebie stamps that came with Creative Stamping magazine this month which are lovely.

I have a couple more cards to show you, the first is another pop up box baby card for my friend's great neice

This was a card for my talented goddaughter using the cute House Mouse.

An anniversary card for my OH which it seems was our
 Sapphire ( 45 )

Finally I mentioned in my last post that I was going on the BB afternoon tea tour and thought I'd show you a couple of photos, we were so lucky with the weather, great afternoon! We had front seats upstairs.

Now it wouldn't be right not to show you Phoebe!! Here she is looking gorgeous 

And here is proud grandad with his best friend Charlie :o)

Sorry it's been photo heavy that's the trouble when I don't post regularly!

Loving your masculine Christmas card. I love wintry scenes and this one is lovely, like the frame and the texture of the dies. And wow, that afternoon tea looked amazing, I could polish that off right now!
Thanks for sharing with us.

Valerie wow !!!! What gorgeous cards especially the LIM card so beautifully done as for the pop up box amazing ! I just can't get my head or hands for that matter around them this is fantastic. I felt very nostalgically seeing that London bus they never looked like that when I lived there how wonderful. As for your grand daughter she is positively divine as is Charlie.

Gorgeous photos of the beautiful Phoebe and handsome Charlie! Your cards are wonderful! I LOVE the one that you have done with the Creative Stamping free stamps. They are looking for people to submit their cards for the readers gallery, and I am sure that Amy would snap this one up! It is Stunning! The Creative Stamping facebook page has details x
