One of my favourites - Pocket Silhouettes

 
stampin' Up! demonstrator Zoe Tant 

 
It's been a busy week as some of my team and I have been preparing for The Sincerely Yours Craft Show at The Lincolnshire Show Ground tomorrow.  We have a stand and look forward to welcoming all to our display, demonstrations and make and take table.  It's on from 10am to 4pm with plenty of parking and inexpensive entrance what more could you want on a Bank Holiday weekend!

I have now just about got everything ready and so have taken some time out to christen my river rock inkpad, can't believe it was still in the cello wrapper, to make a card for this weeks challenge at Less is More.  The lovely ladies have set an interesting challenge in that you need to divide your card into squares and choose one to decorate. If you fancy ago click on the link and check the exact details and lots of  fab entries.  I've gone for the centre, but have added a twist by decorating the centre square inside my card and have just added an embossed frame on the outside.  I've stamped with my favourite set Pocket Silhouettes in early espresso, river rock (what a fab neutral!) and soft suede.  I used my paper trimmer to cut the aperture in the card and the frame.  The light is awful today so I've taken a few shots in the hope that you get the picture!
Time for a cuppa now and to pack my bags for the show where if you visit our stand you can find out about how you could win your very own BIG SHOT!  Can't make it then you can always email or telephone an order to me.
I look forward to seeing you.
Happy crafting
