Less Is More Challenge Number 34

I’m very early posting this weeks card for the absolutely fantastic Less Is More Challenge.  Am so glad that all the Limettes tried their hardest to reach the magic 1000 entries that our leaders Chrissie and Mandi had requested we try last week.  There were over 700 which i think is fantastic and probably hasn't been seen in Blogland for a very long time! 

Sorry to say i’m not feeling too well again so have thrown card together for the SKETCH challenge.

The image is from a CD i purchased a few years ago and drawn by a wonderful fantasy artist called ‘Ching Chou Kuik’. I adore this lady’s amazing talent for bringing to life such beautiful characters. Printed onto a matt photo paper then matted and layered onto matching card stock and a multicoloured mirror card. Bling is from stash and i am sorry to say i have used peel off stickers for the sentiment, something i very rarely do these days…

I have to say a huge Thank You  to all the people who managed to comment on last weeks cards!!! Your efforts are much appreciated.

Am going to be taking a break from entering LIM  challenges for a few weeks as i have to get going on making my hand made xmas presents and i really don’t have the energy to do both.  Once again Thank You to those of you who regularly comment and give some wonderful feedback,  really has helped me to move forward with some of my little problem areas.  If i do get some time i will try to drop in for the occasional challenge.

Chrissie and Mandi have built a wonderful community of Limettes who are full of talent and who love to help others. Really appreciate you putting the site together Lady Divas, and  you’ve made a place for us to visit full of fun and learning and where we can meet new friends.  I hope i will still be a Limette even though  i won’t be regularly posting…

Thanks for dropping by and i hope to see you all very soon.  I will be blogging the items i make when possible so if you feel like keeping in touch please do drop by when you have the time.

Take care:-) xxx
