I'm just back from Buckingham's Christmas parade which brings the community together with a cavalcade of brilliantly made floats, pipe bands, dancers and other displays all to raise money for various charities. It was a bright, sunny morning which really brought the crowds out and there was a lovely atmosphere. Now I'm back, there's just time to whip up a card for the Less is More challenge before I fly out and get some last minute shopping done. The theme at the site today is Anniversary - come and see what I came up with:
See that branch? That's from my fabulous new Take Care stamp set and I'm very excited about it! I bought the set thinking it would come in handy for Easter with its sweet nest and eggs but the image I love the most is this branch - just think of all the things you can perch on that!
For this card I brought in a couple of the birds from my Aviary set - aren't they cute?! I stamped a heart from my Little Additions set between them and it amuses me how startled they look!
The sentiments from Teeny Tiny Wishes are always lovely and neat and understated, allowing the image to take centre stage.
Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Take Care, Aviary, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Little Additions (tiny heart)
Ink: Marina Mist, Raspberry Ripple classic inks plus Lucky Limeade, Soft Suede and Early Espresso markers
Card stock: Whisper White

My husband doesn't normally get involved in our family silliness but whenever he does it's always a cracker! Yesterday he looked over at me when we were watching TV and, with a completely straight face, asked me: "Do you know what time Andy Murray goes to bed?" When I replied that I had no idea he smiled with satisfaction. "Tennish," he said. This was to pay me back for a time about twenty years ago when he accused me of being up to mischief. "You're looking positively elvish!" he said. "What?" I said. "Elvish Preshley?!"
Anyway, enough of all this rambling... any minute now it'll be Christmas so I'd better get sorted! I'll be back next week to show you the rest of my festive makes - including some very quick ones for anyone who fancies making a batch of Christmas cards in half an hour! See you then,
