Love you ~ you are so loved !

Hi there!

I can't believe that Less is more is celebrating their 4th birthday already!

I remember the day when I stumbled upon the blog, and thought, wow :
 
 " This is the type of cards I want to make ! "

I was so nervous when I linked my first card to a challenge here, but since that day, I really try my best to join the LIM team every week!

Thanks for all the encouragement over the years ... to not only the DT, but also my fellow participants!

I have two cards for the challenge. Two because I made the first one, and then decided... NOPE... not successful...  NOT posting this ... and then my daughter said she LOVES it, which made me decide to show you the first, and second attempt ;)



For the first card I made the striped paper by cutting strips of pink and grey polka dot paper, and glueing it to a piece of typing paper. Then die cut the hearts in different directions and layering it using foam tape. I added a sentiment from " loving thoughts" stamp set by Casual Fridays.



For the second card, I used a digital stamp from Cuddly Buddly. Used the trace and off set function to cut and print.
Colored with promarkers, and added a stamped sentiment  and hearts (from Uniko studio )

That's it!

Thanks for visiting me today!

Both cards are fantastic Hannelie and no need to worry on either as they are your usual super duper creations.
Can't choose between them. Thanks for your words about LIM and for playing along in our birthday challenge.

Altwee die kaartjies is pragtig Hannelie. Die olifante is te oulik vir woorde.
Groete,
Amelia

Two fab cards Hannelie, don't know why you didn't want to post the first, a fun twist on the heart die cut. The elephants are just too cute. :)

Jen Mitchell said...

No doubt about it your daughter is right! Both cards are fantastic!

OOooooo, vrou, daai eerste kaartjie is stunning, soos net jy dit kan doen!!! Daai harte is net so briljant uitgesny en op mekaar gesit!!!! Dis lieflik en ek's mal oor daai pragtige sentiment - wat 'n spesiale boodskappie en die font lyk so lieflik saam met jou harte!!!! Hou van waar jy die sentiment gesit het en die bling is natuurlik ook perfek geplaas!!!! Dis regtig mooi, vrou!!!
En die olifantjies - tog te skattig en wat 'n cute valentines kaartjie!!! Ek's mal oor die hartjies en strepe waarmee hulle versier is!!!! Die blommetjie is skattig en ek hou van die platvorm waarop hulle staan - pragtig om dieslfde kleur te gebruik as die boonste hartjies!!!! Die klein sentiment pas pragtig daar op sy plek!!! Ek kyk nou weer na die olifantjies en moet net se ek hou van daai pienk wangetjies, die haartjies op die kop, die ougat stertjies en die spiral ore!!! Baie skattig, vrou!!!
Groete en 'n lekker week vir jou hoor!!!

I'm on your daughter's side, Hannelie. I LOVE your first card. Of course, I love your second card, too. I tend to love all your cards. I visited the LIM blogsite and plan to follow them. I'd really like to learn to make less fussy cards, so I need to see LOTS of examples (I'm a slow learner). Thanks so much for all your inspiration, too.

Kara Lynne said...

Two great cards! I love the pink and gray and how different they are on both of your cards.

Geri said...

...ummmmm, so which of these two fab cards carries the 'not suitable' label? Whichever it is, poor thing is getting a bum rap cuz these are both GREAT! Love the polka dots and LOVE your coloring - especially the rosy cheeks!

sandie said...

I am so glad we got to see both, the lauered hearts with the different directional patterns really works x

Chrissie said...

Well. I think that both cards are super... very different in style but both perfect for our challenge!
Thanks so much for your continued support!
