Less is More #274

Morning Limettes ... do you have that Saturday morning feeling?
Ready to get your teeth into a new challenge over at Less is More?
Hopefully this one won't be as difficult as last week - easy in fact!

It's the 5th Saturday in the month which means it's 'Lucky Dip' Time!
We'd like to see you use Design Paper in a Clean and Simple way!

If you haven't already popped across to see what my fellow teamies have created
 then be sure to do so! As usual they've worked their magic wands to perfect! 

What's more we have an AWESOME, super-talented
guest designer with us for this week so please head over to see how
Esther of Carnelian Wood has worded with design paper.

Here's mine:

One for the box here as I'm short on Baby Congrats cards and there's
a few cousins about to have little ones any time soon!

This card uses the Sweet Baby set from Uniko plus the 'New Baby' 
from Simply Said, also Uniko. I started out by inking the top left corner
with distress in in Wild Honey, a little spritz of water and perfect pearls,
a die-cut 'diagonal-stitched' rectangle and a few Doodlebug sequins to finish!
OH and my Design paper is Doodlebug too and I've paper-pieced the little vests.

... and it's still Celebrations with the optional twist of fuzzy / die cutting
over at Time Out challenges so I'd like to head over there with this one.
You can't find much more to celebrate than a new baby can you!

... and I guessed wrong! Did the boy congrats card first and one of the
cousins wives had a baby girl this week so I've quickly zipped this one 
together with some design paper from Echo Park and images from
CBS Baby Shower and Mama Elephant sentiments from Just Hatched.

I'd like to enter this one over at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge
where it's an Anything Goes week!

Ok that's it for my post but I'll be back in a little while with a new
challenge over at Addicted to CAS so hope you'll pop back then!

Thanks as always for stopping by and have a fun Bank Holiday
weekend if you are in the UK - let's hope the sun shines!


  1. Two yummy baby cards! Love the design of your first one with the honey blend, I always reach for baby blue but this looks fab with those cute little onesies. And pink polka dots are just perfect for a little baby girl, love the font of that Welcome sentiment xx

  2. SO ADORABLE!! The Wild Honey blending on the first card is an absolutely perfect background for the baby vests, and one I would never have thought of. It looks fabulous. The second card is really cute and so pretty with that little elephant. Congratulations to your rellies on their new and impending arrivals! x

  3. Absolutely gorgeous Sarah, you have such a clever touch and your designs inspire every time!
    Love the baby elephant card!
