Week 82 - recipe - 3-2-1

3-2-1   Yes ....... I'm afraid I AM old enough to remember that programme !! (Never one of my favourites though).
My 3-2-1 contribution is
1 flower  (from a pack I've had for ages but not sure where I got them)
2 hearts  (heart punch using sparkly paper)
3 strands of twine (and 3 words too) (I made the 'Baker's twine' myself to get the colour I wanted)
Now as it's a grey day I think I must do some housework(!!!!!!!!) and maybe try to get OH to start painting our bedroom and bathroom !Though I may have a fight on my hands there.
Hope I get time to check out some blogs this week. Thank you for comments on my last effort.

Less is More - week 80 - Fur or Feathers

Mmmm. One layer week at Less is More this week. Not my style at all, though 'Fur' definitely is! We always had cats until a couple of years ago when my last beautiful tortoiseshell cat had to be put to sleep and I couldn't face the heartache again. I absolutely love ginger cats and having had two I know that they are quite different characters from other cats. Hence my choice of orange (actually TH Wild Honey!) for this stamp.
A c6 ivory hammered card base with 'Sleepy cat' by Funstamps (no idea where it came from - I've had it for years) stamped with TH Wild Honey distress ink. Sentiment is computer printed. It's a quote from a favourite poem of mine by Eleanor Farjeon. Faux stitching border stamped in TH Wild Honey and Pumice Stone is part of a set from what was Dimension Fourth (think they've changed their name now).
Off for a day out now though not sure where OH has planned for us.
Thanks to everyone for their kind comments last week.

Less is More -Week 79 Colour -Blue & Green

Can't believe that it's been 11 weeks since I last entered the challenge at Less is More. Lots of things have been happening in my life over the last few months - some good and some not so good - which have come between me and my crafting! Hope I'm back on course now.
Inspiration for this week's challenge for me was the Himalayan poppy - I've not managed to grow any but I gaze longingly at them in the seed/flower catalogues.
An A6 size card with a computer printed sentiment. The poppy is Memory box Prim Poppy cut in handmade paper that I've had for ages.
It's good to be back!
