Tear It on the LIM Challenge

Good Morning all :-) I hope you’re all fit and well and enjoying a good start to your weekend :-)

I was up bright and early so I thought I would sit down and make a CAS card for the Less Is More Challenge and become a ‘proper’ Limette by trying to enter every week ,,,,, :-)

This week Mandi and Chrissie are asking us to use tearing on our cards, I tore a few bits of Washi tape :-) ,, LOVE this stuff !

The script tape is from Tim Holtz and the other 2 were in the Monthly Card Kits from Simon Says Stamp. I had a fab parcel yesterday and in it was this fab n funky Retro Squares die from MFT so I had to use it ! The spotty paper was also in the parcel, it's from a Classic pack from Fabscraps,, I have been wanting this since I saw it at the CHA and it is so popular it was always out of stock !

I finished with a sentiment from Hero Arts and a few little red gems :-) I am quite happy with how this turned out ,, do you like it ? I appreciate your comments ,, the good and the bad so please be honest :-)

BTW, do you have a Silhouette Machine ?? I found a fab deal on the downloads yesterday, pay $18 ( + a 25% discount on that )for $30 image download voucher !! ,, I bought 2 ! what a fab deal,,, for more details click HERE :-)

Thanks for looking :-) see ya’ll later Smile

Thank you for joining us in our current theme 'words only' over on the craftymess challenge blog.
What a really great card. Less is definitely more and this card is a brilliant example of that. I love the papers you chose to use and I adore the retro strip :-)
Hopefully we will see you entering more of our future themes on our blog.

Hi Lorraine,
thank you for your lovely entry for our Craftymesseers 'Words' Challenge.
Beautiful LIM card and the Washi Tape ( I'm a fan of it) is perfect.
Thanks for sharing.

Great colours on this.

Dawn said...

A wonderful CAS card. I love the bold colour combo and the retro squares - they remind me of my childhood :) The washi looks awesome; I'm reluctant to try it out myself as I fear a whole new shopping addiction might follow...

Hugs, Dawn

Karen said...

I'm so sorry that I'm late in visiting this week, but I have been on a wonderful cruise to Norway where I didn't have very good Internet coverage!
Thanks so much for your lovely contribution!
