Less is More - Week 132 One Layer

Hello everyone - hope you're having a great Saturday.  It's been a really long day for me as I've been up since 5.30am as we had the village breakfasts this morning.  This is something we do on six Saturday mornings during the school holidays for everyone travelling down to Devon and Cornwall on holiday.  We've been doing this for about 45 years (not me you understand!!!  lol).  Anyway it's a great experience and raises valuable money for various village organisations.

So, when I got back I cut the grass and then did some gardening so I wouldn't feel guilty coming upstairs to my craft room later on and then we popped in to a lunch party we were invited to.  This week I've been busy making samples for our craft club evening next Wednesday and also my DT card for Addicted to CAS for next Saturday.  Then I spied the new Less is More challenge which is:

For our 
 challenge this week, we would like to see 
Just one would do, but you may have as many as you wish!

My card is very simple and everything I've used has been from the Stampin Up "Memorable Moments" stamp set.  Now you won't believe just how many photos I took in every position in different rooms just to show that it's all been heat embossed with silver detail e/p!  I'm still not sure you can see it properly.  I started off stamping the frame and embossing it and then I used the matching Framelits Labels collection of dies just to emboss the shape around the frame.  I added the 25th and then Happy and Anniversary and everything was heat embossed.

Thanks for stopping by - hope you all have a great weekend.
