Less is More Challenge...Week 33...Take 2

Hi everybody....back again with card No 2 for the Less Is More Challenge...
Hero Arts: CG572 - 2 Birds In A Tree
inked with TH Distress Ink...Chipped Sapphire
Sentiment inked with Barn Door
Pearls: Hobby House

I have some sad news to share with you faithful workhorse Mr Dyson has gone to vacuum cleaner heaven....after 10 years of swallowing billions of dog hairs and all the paper bits and pieces that the cubbyhole could throw at him without complaint I may add...he decided that enough was enough...died in his sleep...poor old thing.
So let me introduce you to the newest member of the cubbyhole crew...
all smart and shiny...a bit more lightweight but every bit as noisy...surely there must be a way of making the daily Dyson dance around more peaceful...crikey my ears are still ringing from this morning's jig.  Being the new kid on the block I wonder if he realises he'll be working his little socks off starting out with the cubbyhole mess and no time for slacking before he tackles the huge daily hair removal bonanza.  Let's hope he's up to the job and can step up to the plate because I have things to do and places to go today...I'm off on a little jaunt with my lovely buddy Debbi..any excuse for a break from the kitting frenzy...fingers crossed that time out with coffee and a crafty chat will somewhat restore my sanity...I'll back tomorrow to tell you where we got to on today's travels.
Hugs Kath


  1. I do hope Dyson Junior is up to the dog hair.... I can imagine how much there is...I have two Cocker Spaniels but we have wood and tiled floor so it gathers round the edges... Dreading carpets when back in the UK

  10. Our Dyson died back int he summer - he was a lot older than 10 years!! We went for one of the Dyson ball things - good so far! Our little schnauzer (15 yesterday) doesn't shed but I do!! Great cards - love the less is more stuff! Oh and my first Ribbon Girl order arrived today - beautiful - so thank you for that link!!

    Sorry about the Dyson, but how great to have a new one!

  12. Both cards are brilliant, love everything about both of them.
    I am definately very interested in the envelope stamp, not seen it about though.

  13. Hope Dyson Junior recovers after his initial shock & proves an equally worthy helper during the next decade.....Perhaps Buddy & Dyson Jn could get to know each other & come to an agreement about the hair.
