Going, Going, Going....

And by Monday teatime will be gone! Not long left but still time to order with me and earn yourself a gorgeous FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set or to grab an absolute steal of a bargain on the Starter Kit!

Right then, back in my craft room after a few days being too busy to get through the door I have created a project following the recipe set by Mandi and Chrissie over at Less is More. This week the girls would like to see us use three squares. please join in and comment on some of the entries as you're sure to find tons of inspiration by doing so. Here's mine:


















I'm not overjoyed with the quality of the photo but it keeps clouding over and I had to be quick in the conservatoire as Blake was nodding off in the lounge and the door opening disturbs him!

I've used Early Espresso as my base and it's a larger 7x5" card too. The squares are punched using the 1 1/4" square punch from Pretty in Pink textured card. The butterflies are from the Sale-A-Bration Bliss set (I'm going to miss using this one) stamped in Marina Mist. I've layered them up on dimensionals to add some lift to my design:


















I curled the butterflies before sticking them down and added some self adhesive pearls to bring them to life a bit. The sentiment is actually a rub on from the Bday Party pack. It is the same colour as the butterflies but I couldn't photograph it very well.


















I popped on another pearl above the 'i' - almost didn't but pleased I did in the end!

I'm a busy lady this weekend as have to prep for something next weekend and also need to make up some business packs for the new members of Team Jelly! Hello to Lynda and Jacqueline, Mary and Linda!

Hope you all have a fab weekend
