Week 217

The weeks seem to rush by and here we are again with another new challenge.
For our recipe this time we challenge you to
Combine any three previous Less is More challenges
into one creation.
Please note the numbers and title of the challenges you are basing your card on!
Here are ours to get you going!
First up is a card made with a fab Art Impressions stamp that I bought at the NEC last week.  I've coloured my one layer card with Copics and doodled a border around it.   My three challenges are:  Week 120 Man's best friend, cats or dogs,  Week 121 Humour and Week 111 Frame It.
This is another acquisition from the NEC last week, also an Art Impressions stamp, this time from the Golden Oldies series.
The sentiment is computer generated and reads 'So far, this is the oldest I've ever been!' It made me smile as it was just the sort of thing my mother-in-law would have said in her later years!
This guy was coloured with a variety of alcohol pens and die cut with a SSS stitched rectangle.
The challenges are Week #7 Masculine, Week #121 Humour and Week #65 ( Sketch 5)


I'm combining challenges: #3 Spring (way back)
#66 Yellow and #143 Stringing Along (string or twine)

Card Recipe:
Paper Smooches: Chubby Chumbs coloured with Promarkers
WPlus9: Conversation Bubble dies
MFT Die-namics: Pierced Rectangle Stax dies
Uniko Studia: Flower Power #4 sentiment
Doodlebug: sprinkles and twine

There are pages at the top with all our previous challenges and sketches for you to choose from.
We thought you might enjoy seeing the DT meeting up last weekend for the craft show in Birmingham. It's the first time we have managed to all get together as we live so widely spread (by UK standards). It was lovely to be together even for a short time.

Should you choose a challenge which happened to be a One Layer card in the original challenge, there is no necessity to make it one layer for this challenge, unless you particularly wish to do so.
'Anything goes' is NOT available as one choice!
