LIM week 94 - hardware

The challenge on Less is More this week is "hardware". I have got quite a few metal charms and I had those out as I never remember to use them, but in the end these snowflake brads won. I also remembered these tiles that I bought many years ago and haven't used hardly any of them. 
For the first card I used the CC embossing border for the snowflakes and added a Paula Pascale sentiment. 

This was actually my first card but it didn't turn out quite how I hoped. I used two different snowflakes from a Creative Inspirations stamp set called snowflakes and music. I stamped the first directly onto the card. Then stamped the second one using some meltdust, cut around and secured with the brad.

You might notice I have changed my blog. The header is of some poppies in my garden which I took a few years ago.

I went to hospital for balance tests on Tuesday, you can read about the experience in an earlier post. Unfortunately I am not feeling at all well today. I tried to go out earlier on foot and had to come back as the whole experience was not a good one. I do hope I am not back to square one again with my balance.

Hi Lin, I really like both of these fab CAS cards. Lovely work.

Your new blog looks great - much easier to read. I really hope you're back to full health soon. Take care

Aw honey, just been reading about your hospital visit - not nice and no wonder it knocked you sideways!

Love this card - but most of all I hope things settle back down ASAP for you.

Hugs, Di xx

I'm really sorry to read that you're not feeling on top form Lynn, your tests sounded dreadful, I really hope that the eye exercise regime they have given you works!
These look great, I love the embossed snowflakes on the first one.
Thanks so much and feel better soon.
