A Little Note or Two... Less Is More #106 OLC Music

Morning LIMettes.... Can you believe it's Saturday again... not sure where this week has gone and I had very little time for any crafting :-(.  Anyhow. It's official i'm now a regular designer over at Less Is More with the news that Mandi has decided to step down to concentrate on her wedding business!!.  I'm so excited and hope I manage to inspire you week on week!
This weeks challenge is everyone's favourite .. One Layer Cards!! The theme this week can be interpreted in lots of ways....
Now for my cards..  My first card uses Co-ordinations card stock as the base and then the embossed area sanded lightly over

Card Recipe:
EF: Sizzix
Co-Ordinations: White Wash
Ribbon: Stampin Up

The second card was a little more tricky even though it looks simple... I tried a variety of shapes over the sentiment but I kept missing bits of the stamp so i gave up!!
The sentiment was masked with whispers tape before I stamped over it with a LOTV stamp.

Card Recipe:
Image: LOTV
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat

Ok.. That's all from me for today... I'm going to try and find my mojo under the mess on my desk and catch up on some crafting today!
