Hi lovely Bloggers - thank you for popping by!
This week at Less Is More, it's Challenge #233 and the theme is
"Life's A Beach!"

The Memory Box stencil is "Texture Wave", coloured with distress inks.
I Die-cut a Nestabilities circle  and frame on the top card layer and  placed the beach scene behind.
The top layer was popped up with 3-d pads.
I made a little beach umbrella, (it looks more like a mushroom, but never mind)!! I coloured it with DI and popped it under the circle with Pinflair glue.
Sentiment from the SU Happy Day stamp set (now retired).

I would also like to link up to Thats Crafty - "Stencils and Masks"

Have a happy day - HUGS,

Hi peeps  hope you are enjoying the hot weather - have been waiting several months for it to arrive, but now I'm too hot!  The heavens have just opened here in West Yorkshire and it's pouring down, which is a blessing for me, and for the garden!

My card today is for the current Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge and I have used some of the stamps from the Harlequin Rose again, with a very different effect from the previous one.

I painted the Rose and leaves with Distress Inks and SU Mint Macaron for the pale green.
Edges of cardstock coloured with Distress Inks, applied with a TH Inkssentials  applicator.
SU Linen  Twine attaches the heart.

This is the colour swatch and inspiration picture for the
  Chocolate Baroque Challenge -

Happy crafting ~ hugs,
