Less is More - week 7

Chrissie and Mandi - what have you started? Since you began your amazing blog -http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/ - I can't stop doing these CAS cards.
Well, here's number 3. A 'tie' stamp by Sirius/Hobby (one that my daughter gave me when she stopped card making and began home making!). Stamped on to 3 different papers from a Dovecraft paper pack (Masculine) and then cut out (with shaking hands in case I spoiled them) Sentiment done in Publisher and a border in brown to finish. I prefer A6 landscape cards to horizontal and this shape was just right for the ties.
I probably won't have time for cards next week - we're off to Cornwall to see the gardens of Heligan, Lanhydrock and Eden (my Christmas present from OH - isn't he wonderful?) and then I have a week house/cat sitting for my daughter and her fiance while they go to Cornwall. It's all go when you're retired!

I love your card. Stamping the tie onto patterned paper is such a great idea and perfect co-ordination with the colours.x
