I love this week's Less is More challenge where Chrissie and Mandi have gone all oval! Come and see what I've made:
This is one of my favourite kinds of card - a bit of nature, lots of space, a bit of texture and a splash of colour. I've used the oval one of the Designer Frames embossing folder set. (TIP: If you use the Crease Pad instead of the top cutting pad in your Big Shot sandwich, you don't get any unsightly creases.) The image inside was made with my new Watercolour Winter set and cut out with my extra large Oval punch.
This set is wonderful! It's a two step stamping set (can you see how the outline of the pine cones has been stamped in the darker brown, then they've been 'coloured in' with a filler stamp in a lighter brown?) and it has all the Christmas plant life I need - pine needles and cones, holly with berries and a beautiful poinsettia too!

My son made a fruit salad at school yesterday. He informed me at bedtime the night before (naturally!) that he needed to bring in five types of fruit and some juice... I had an apple, some melon and some strawberries and, after scrambling around the kitchen, came up with a can of peaches and some frozen raspberries! His homework was to ask a couple of people to taste it and write what they'd thought of it. I wrote: "I like the way the raspberries combine with the peach juice and the crisp texture of the apple." My daughter was much more imaginative. She wrote: "It's like Christmas in my mouth!"
Thanks for dropping in today. Have a lovely weekend and I'll be back on Monday.
