Star of a Daddy!

Morning... Sorry it has been a while, between travelling and literally having 1 day a week at home to major issues with blogger not wanting to let me upload new photos due to storage issues I've not managed to post anything this month at all!!  I do have a few cards made to show you over the next couple of weeks so fingers crossed I can get it all sorted during the long weekend!

It's Saturday and I thought I would join in with this weeks Less Is More again... I was doing so well in April and it's slipped but I plan to join in when I can...  This week the challenge is a theme and is to "Use Some Metal"  ... This was a tough one.... Finally decided to put together two of my hobbies.. Metal Stamping and card making....

A close up showing the metal hand stamping!

Card Stock: Marina Mist & Smokey Slate from Stampin Up
Papertrey Ink Linen Embossing
Stitched Stars from Lil Inkers
Aluminum Washer Hand Stamped by me

Apart from a couple of cards I need to make to post out for family birthdays I'm going to have a well deserved break today and do nothing!

Have a fabulous Saturday!
