"Less is More" 58

Good morning
Feeling very tired this morning, was up til about 3. 
It was one of those impromptu listening of music!, Steve had been out and our friend was staying over. Music really does hold lots of special memories of our life doesn't it.
Off to have my nails done for 9am......SO not a good idea lol

Over on "Less is More" today our One Layer challenge is

and bling is back.....breathe!
Easy peasy for me. The fabulous stamp is by Butterfly Kisses Chic Background Stamped in Versarmark and embossed with WOW Princess Pink....scrummy! It is, as I said last week, THE best embossing powder, it stays just as sparkly once embossed and doesn't fall off or overheat, as I found with older powders from years back. The rhinestone embellishment is from Hobby House yawn, I know I use them all the time!! and a feather from my stash.
Here is a close up... I was trying to show you how crisp and sparkly it is, but I'm not sure if you can see it in this shot.





To my great surprise and delight I have been given an award by one of our lovely LIMettes Lainey

Thank you very much

I am also supposed to nominate 15 other people to receive this award, well this is the bit I'm afraid I don't have time t do, so if you forgive me, I won't


I do have to pass on 7 facts about myself..all very boring, never know what to say for this kinda, thing, sorry


1 - I have been card making since 2004, but, have always been arty farty!
2 - I have a passion for shoes and have about 80 pairs [have recently thrown some!!]
3 - I passed my driving test first time after the 13th lesson
4 - I'm an animal lover 
5 - I'm tall 5'8" with size 8 feet, which I hate cos if the 8 doesn't fit the next place is the box they come in!
6 - We  love cruising and spent our honeymoon on the QE2, visiting New york, Bermuda and the Caribbean
7 - I have an obsession for a few things, even numbers, my mugs colour co-ordinated in the cupboard, tins front facing...I won't go on lol

Thank you for stopping by I really do appreciate your wonderful comments
Have a lovely day

This card oozes glamour Mandi, I love it, especially the bling.

Monica said...

Hi Mandi,
Just wanted to clarify - are bling and embellies allowed in one layer? I made a card with some pearls and deleted the post thinking one layer meant no embellies.

Your card is so glam.
