Less is more


Usually after a few days of thinking of the Less is More Challenge I have a lightbulb moment and everything fall into place not this time. I could easily make a card similar to what I've already done but that wouldn't be a challenge.
Has it is, my card is a bit basic. I had been thinking since the price of postage stamp is now expensive that I must make more of an effort to make more cards that fit through the normal post slot.
So the idea of the snow flake was born and then I layered it with dove grey and pink card, the snowflake by the way is Memory box.
Then it was to hunt out a silver inkpad for the Stampin Up sentiment and make the flat bow that I know can go through normal post. I so want to add a gem or pearl in the middle of the snowflake but that it would be large post.

Well this is just so perectly elegant, Debby. The pink and grey are such a lovely combo and I love that sentiment stamp (I bought it myself). I've been trying to make fewer square cards because they cost more to mail here in the US. Fabulous card! Hugs, Kathy

A lovely card Debby really like it clean and simple but very effective and the colours are lovely just a change for xmas from the ususal red & greens. I think the cost of postage will have a big effect on the xmas cards this year. Aud x

A few things i have observed in terms of computer memory is that there are specifications such as SDRAM, DDR and so forth, that must match up the specifications of the motherboard. If the computer's motherboard is fairly current and there are no os issues, upgrading the storage space literally takes under an hour. It's one of the easiest computer upgrade procedures one can imagine. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
