Shaken not Stirred ,,,,,

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all enjoying a lazy Sunday morning, no cooking for me today we are going to a Scouts fundraising lunch ,, always yummy food ,,, not sausage and beans ,,, :-) Unfortunately it was supposed to be Al Fresco in Dwejra, a beautiful area and a World heritage site,, instead we will be in the Scouts Hut ,,, all good fun tho :-)

When I saw the theme on the Less Is More Challenge this week I just had to join in ,, this stamp arrived on Friday, my latest purchase from Simon Says Stamp ,,,,,shhh and it was PERFECT for this challenge :-)

This cute House Mouse stamp is called Olive a Party ,, this has been on my wish list for months and it finally found its way into my basket. I coloured with copics and embossed the lower edge with a bubbles embossing folder.

Now came the tricky bit ,, after seeing the font Chrissie used on her card ,, I HAD to use it too ,,,, well ,, the kids are now in Malta, so no help with computer ,, it took me HOURS to add it ,, I was watching video’s on you tube, reading idiots guides ,, well ,,, it was all foreign to me but in the end it worked and I have no idea how I did it ,,, !

I used SU Old Olive and Whisper White card ( bought from Mandi xx) I added a couple of Hero Arts pearls, coloured with a copic marker, and a few spots of Art Institute glitter for sparkle.

edited ,, just noticed that I didn't move my name to bottom corner ,,, oops ,,,

The recipe of my personality :-)

3 parts Uniqueness
2 parts Inspiration
1 part Daring

And a Splash of Savvy

Finish off with a squeeze of lime juice :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one xx
