Less is More #277

Hello friends - have you got that Saturday feeling?
I hope so as I'm here to announce the latest challenge details at

Less is More 

and we are back round to our theme week and we're looking for 
Something that Pops or Bangs

As always my Teamies have worked their magic with this one so there's 
loads of inspiration over on the main blog if you haven't checked it already
and here's what I've got for you ...

I was in a silly mood when I put this together and had this image of an old car 
chugging and popping with a bang here and there as it's 'driven' down a 
hill to get the engine working! I hope my collection of images depicts this...
I've used a computer generated sentiment which I hardly ever do these days and
stamped images from Paper Smooches: Metropolis and Sunny Side Up.
The single car is coloured with Promarkers and as Uniko are sponsoring Passion 
for Promarkers challenge this week I thought I'd show some support and play along.

It's also their 7th Anniversary so lots of prizes and a huge congrats to the team!

Feel free to pinch me :)

 Next up using more traditional objects ....

This time a background of tone on tone balloons from a New Clearly Besotted
set: Let's Party and also from CBS: Bon Voyage and Set the Scene for the fireworks.
The sentiment is from Uniko: Simply Said and I'd like to link this one up
at TimeOut Challenges for Sandie's special birthday - a second entry and this
time sharing the purple twist too! 

Last but not least ... my daughter said 'bubbles pop' 

So using the Paper Smooches Briny Blue set and the 'Have A ... Day'
sentiment from Uniko: Celebrate with Cake I've created an underwater scene!
No I didn't do this one by mistake for last week using more than one layer!!!
It's hot off the craft table this week!

Ok that's all for me today and thanks for calling by.
I'll be back tomorrow morning with an extra special birthday bonanza
challenge post for AAA Cards so hope you'll join me as there's 
a blog hop, treasure hunt and loads of prizes up for grabs!
