Less is More week 13

I went back to work last Tuesday after a 2 week break hence my lack of posts! I was only back for 3 days and then off for the long weekend - lucky me! I set about making some cards yesterday - some of you may know I don't have a craft room (yet!) so I have to drag out loads of stash into my living room - but I couldn't find my mojo :((

I made this one pitiful card for the Less is More challenge which this week is Thanks or Congratulations.

I made this card for my sister who had her driving test today. Unfortunately she failed so not only do I not really like this card that much, I now feel like I jinxed her! Sorry sis xx

Today is a new day however and my mojo returned - hurrah!! and I made the following card for the same challenge

This was my first attempt at making rolled roses and I'm really happy how they turned out. I added a little glitter glue along the top edges for a bit of sparkle.

Bit of a long post for me, so thanks (if you made it to the end!) for looking and also a BIG thank you to all the lovely LIMettes who leave such lovely and encouraging comments each week.

  15. Hi Donna

    Sorry to hear your Sister failed her test .. ... I don't think it was anything to do with you because there was nothing wrong with your card!!

    Love the roses on your second one very much.

    Love Jules xx

  16. Your handmade blooms look awesome! Great cards! Just hang on to the first card, your sister will probably pass the test soon!

  17. Hello there, Great cards both, don't think your card could possibly jinx anyone it's far to good, I'm sure that your sis will pass soon, too expensive to fail!LOL :0) xxx
    Wishing her Good Luck !

  18. Gorgeous cards Donna. I love your glittery rolled roses :) Sarah

  19. So sorry your sister didn't pass this time Donna but I can't believe your card would have been the culprit! It's beautiful - I really like the bold bow on it. Love the second card too - your rolled flowers are gorgeous. I love the touch of sparkle on the edges. (I've just been over to your daughters blog too - how lovely that you've passed your crafty genes on!)

  20. Great cards - fab red bow and adore the second one - flowers are just brilliant.

    You did an awesome job with the blooms - they look fab. I have tried to make these but they always end up looking like something the dog has chewed up!!
