Less is More..


The girls over at LIM have come up with yet another great challenge and this week its POLKA DOTS.
Stamp used is one by Impression Obsession and us just called 'Evening Gown', stamped onto some SU designer paper.  I ran my card through my Bigshot using the circles embossing folder, found a flower just add a few dots to it.  The border is my new punch from S.U.
I don't have a lot of time to craft this week as its half term and of course we shall be seeing  our grandchildren and also want to try and do some more Christmas shopping I just hate shopping in crowds.
