Happy WOYWW 254.
It's a very tidy WOYWW for me and the first one for a couple of weeks. 
I have had so much going family on.
I was tidied up to go to Germany tomorrow to visit my son and grandchildren. What is it they say about best laid plans?? Unless a miracle happens we aren't going. I am gutted but trying to keep going.
My card is a download from Card making downloads. I have an A3 printer so I was able to make it into an 8x8 card. Glossy Accents. Card Candy.
Bits from my stash. Box from Stella Crafts.

Vintage hat!

Hi everyone, I finally cut this free Studio file available  from Alyce at Kit & Clowder.
 love Alyces amazing work she is one of the best colourists about.
I cut out all of the pieces on my Silhouette. I used DI Crushed Olive & stamped some of the parts  using Chloes grass stamp. On C&C 9am today. I used a small stamp from my stash in Seedless preserves. Perfect for an Easter Bonnet!
I glued all the pieces together and made some flowers using Chloe's flower stamp on some scrap paper and Wow Diamond White EG. I also did a little distressing round the edge.
I used some of Chloes Sparklicious glitter Pink Starburst.

Less is more no2

Hi everyone!
I am on a roll the last couple of days. 
Steroids the Doctor gave me have kicked in and it's such a relief. 
Hands still look awful but the pain is lots better.
I blogged earlier today here.
Over on Less is more it's one layer Shadow Stamping
My card base was bought from A touch of class a few years ago. I stamped the car with Momento London Fog then Black Onyx to create a shadow. 
Stamps are Papermania.

Another set of cards!

 Above is what you buy!
Below is what I made.

Hi everyone.
I have another set of cards to share I made using Amanda Davis cutting files you can buy HERE
It's hare to believe they are the same set of cards as the colour is so different. It must be due to the light and the different times of day the photos were taken.
My embellishments are from MeiFlower
