Less is More - Doodling....

Good morning!

The challenge over at Less is More this week is Doodling!

I've been debating over the weekend whether or not to post these cards...

I'm embarrassed....
when I see the beautiful and intricate cards everyone else has made :)
You can probably tell it only took 5 minutes each to make them....


I love doodling on cards but it's always been faux stitching or simple dots and lines.
This really was a challenge for me and not one I'm totally comfortable with....lol
I used a Sakura Micron 005 pen for the doodling and added some colour with SU markers.
The scallop card is cut with the Sizzix square scallop die.


Try not to giggle too much at my efforts..... lol :)

I'm off now to have a yummy lunch at Mum's.
While it was lovely having the children off school for 2 weeks ~
it was great to send them back this morning and have the house to myself!

I hope you have a lovely day whatever you're doing
and thank you for visiting my blog :)
Take care :)
Sarah xx

Sarah, these are lovely, so clean and fresh. We can tend to put too much on cards sometimes, well I can. Jools. xx

Don't know why you're embarrassed Sarah both cards are great - I especially like the New Home one, its delightful. I would be thrilled to receive either of your little works of art!

Hi Sarah, your cards look beautiful - don't worry!! :-) Thanks for the nice comment on my blog - this little birthday-thing I made is quite easy to make - I will try to translate for you if you are interested. You can contact me by email cathisbastelecke@gmx.de if you want to. Maybe it will take some days to answer, I am quite busy at the moment with two little kids at home ;-) but I'll try my best
Have a nice evening

Sarah, these are great cards. Love the faux dotted line around the first one. It works well with the edges.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

This isn't doodling Sarah, this is drawing in the whole thing! You are so talented - the cards are absolutely gorgeous! I can't imagine what you'll find to do with the house to yourself though... Lol! Vicky x

Jenny said...

I love these...the flowers look like they could easily be a stamp and I like you little house scene and how the sentiment is part of the frame :0)
I too am glad to have the house and routine back!!!

WOW these are wonderful. I would buy these in a shop, it would have to be upmarket of course to enable me to get them. Congratulations
