I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

This is beautiful Jane although it is not exactly clean and simple, being multi-layered and with no white space, but it is a lovely creation!
Thanks for joining us.

Such a pretty card, and I think the colors for the challenge were a nice twist for this stamp set. I love the shaker box with the stamping behind, very intriguing.

A super stunning an elegant card but as Chrissie says we do prefer a little more CAS and white space at Less is More.
