One Layer or Many Layers at As You Like It

This week's challenge at As You Like It is one layer or many layers - and explain why! I love a full on card with masses of layers and crazy embellishments and I miss not having the time to indulge in that kind of crafting anymore. One day I shall return to it and it will fill me with joy!!!

In the meantime I'll make do with the three layers on this card. I'm in a Woodware phase - particularly this Peony Bloom stamp.

This stamp set is just super pretty however you use it and I'm loving it with the vellum wrap.

I hope you can join us over the next two weeks xxx

Slightly late . . .

Apologies for being late with my As You Like It post - This virus has me worn out and I keep falling asleep reading with my little one and then never make it downstairs for an evening!

This week's As You Like It Challenge is 'Birthday or Christmas'. As Christmas card making is generally a frantic mid-December experience I've gone for Birthday!!!!

I've made a quick card with one of the new LOTV stamps. They will be available at the Farnborough show (22nd/23rd Feb) and then online after that!

Colouring with carpal tunnel is becoming a nightmare but I'm booked in for an injection at the end of February. I'm reluctant to have surgery as it generally get better on its own - it just takes a while!

The trouble with diets . . .

So at the moment if I'm not eating cake, I'm thinking about it or colouring it!!! It's not good and the diet is a disaster. It's not even a diet - it's a sensible eating plan but as it turns out, it's not very sensible! I really must try harder. Maybe colouring cake was not a good idea - I can think of little else but food. Sigh.

So this is the latest colouring class at Kit and Clowder. I love the classes but carpal tunnel has returned and coupled with this ridiculous trigger finger colouring is becoming very tricky :-(

This class is really worth taking a look at - the instruction is fabulous.
