Week 203 Theme Family

Christmas is fast approaching!
We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.
Over the Christmas period when everyone is so busy, we have a challenge which will last for the next two weeks.

Lots of you may have noticed that on some blogs, Blogger has decided to add a 'Prove you're not a robot' feature.
In fact it is not necessary to fill in this box with the numerals indicated. For many, Word Verification is turned off and to alter the settings sometimes causes other problems within the blog, so don't worry and please leave your comments as usual and even without filling in the anti-robot box your comment will be published.

You may know that Jen started a new job some months ago which has taken her all over the world and crafting has had to be fitted in whenever she could. She had hoped to return to LIM after Christmas, but her job is going to continue to be as hectic as ever, so this will be
I'm sure that everyone would like to join with us to wish her all the best for the future and to thank her for all her wonderful inspiration since she has been a part of the Less is More team.
How appropriate that our challenge this week is


Here are our cards.

No stamping! Memory Box deer dies, Sheena Douglass embossing folder topped with a Simon Says diecut snowy slope, computer generated sentiment.  
Here are a bunch of cute birds from Technique Tuesday, simply coloured with Mirage pens and die-cut with a Simon Says Stamp stitched circle die. The dry embossing is from a Couture Creations A4 embossing folder. (I think... I'm looking after a sick granddaughter at the moment so I can't check  my stash to make sure!)
The sentiment was computer generated in Architect's daughter and Love is a many complicated thing.


Just wanted to pop in for one lst challenge to thank you for being part of my crafting family.... I have made a little celebration card for today's theme.

I have used a cute Tiddlyinks Image and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted for this bright fun card.

To thank you all for your support over the last few years I have some candy on my blog for my LIM family.  All you need to do is comment on the Less Is More post for this challenge!!

For this one I've gone with the traditional Christmas family

Paper Smooches: A Blessed Christmas image (heat-embossed in 
WOW pale gold embossing powder and coloured with Promarkers);

Have a wonderful Christmas !
