LIM week 80 Fur or feathers- and a great get together

The challenge on Less is More this week is one layer card with fur or feathers. After a slight panic - I don't really do birds and my teddy bear stamp is not very LIM I realised I had this peacock feather stamp. I stamped in TH peacock feathers (had to really!) and shaded lilac then stamped the third one in black versamark. Added a sentiment from PTI which I thought suited the three theme.
I then had another go as I have a new embossing folder which looks to me like peacock feathers but is called nouveau.
I managed all of this late last night after a wonderful day out with some great blog girls at Sally's house. I have been back at work on a part time basis this week, still not up to driving, so Sally very kindly fetched me and Lisa took me home.
Jules (Always with a heart), Lisa (My Makes n Me), Brenda (Floral Fantasies), Sally (Crafty Salutations), Meg, Sally's daughter (My Mind's Collage) and me (to be known forever more as the lady in blue - you had to be there for that bit! ). We skyped with Ruth from Passion for Stamps and Brenda had kindly bought Ruth's stamps for us to have a play with. Here are a couple of action shots although after the lovely lunch Sally provided and the cakes from her and Lisa together with Bucks Fizz we didn't do much.

Me with a cupcake!

Morning Lynn,

Wasn't it a fabulous day, I certainly enjoyed myself and meeting up with you all again. I think I will suggest to Sal that she formally invites the lady in blue next time.

Loving the colours of your card, sheer elegance.

You lucky girls! What a 'delicious' day. So glad you are feeling well enough to return to work Lynn (not the work bit of course - but you know what I mean). And I love these feather projects - especially that three feather card. Its just lovely.

Had to smile at your action shots. It makes it look like we actually did something other than laugh, talk, eat and drink!!!

Have a good week.

How is the splodge mat going? Any time to have a serious play with it yet?

Such a pretty stylish card Linby. Just perfect for the clean and simple challenge.
The turquoise and black work beautifully on the bright white card. So pretty.

I love the peacock feathers Linby especially grouped together in the first card. It looks as if you had a fabulous get together with some very familiar faces! Vicky x

Ruth said...

Gorgeous card! It was lovely to meet you all on Saturday (from a "safe" distance!) That cupcake looks great - I never got even close to one of those..Maybe we'll do that again some time.Ruth x

Susan said...

I think it so great that you're able to get together with friends that share your hobby! How much fun that would be! I love your cute card...I probably wouldn't have thought to use a feather stamp. I didn't have but one image that I thought would work well...so I resorted to digi images this week!
