Less is More- Boxed Image

Again I would like to REALLY thank all of you that have taken a moment to leave me a comment on my cards. One day I had 60 views from another challenge site and not one person made a comment of any kind.  You gals at "Less is More" are really great about spreading some encourgement with your comments.

I had every intention of getting this challenge posted first thing this morning BUT since my hubby passed I have become the Mr Fix It of this house and last summer a squirrel had ripped my kitchen window screen soooo I figured I would give it a try at replacing it. Well I wnt to tell you gals out there on your own..... there was nothing to it so don't be afraid of at least trying to fix things yourself.

Ok enough of that .... on to my card.

I have tried a couple of times to enter my cards at Less is More only to get a note saying I didn't do it right. I did manage to enter another one but I found it very hard to leave a lot of the space empty. You would think this would be easy to do but I guess we are used to layers and more layers and I kept thinking it needs just a little more. Well this week I just did as requested and this one is a very simple understated card but I am thinking that less is starting to be refreshing now. I will try more of these.

There is nothing to tell you about this card other than I used SU Black card stock and ink.

Here is my attempt for this week.
You should try one too.  LOL I bet you will find it hard not to think .... but it just needs a little something. LOL

OK Chrissie.....  did I do any better????  LOL I hope 3 is a charm....  as they say and I am on the right track now. 
I have to edit this post....
I just can't believe this!!!!! I messed up again!!!! This week is supposed to be as follows....

OLC One Layer CardOne piece of card folded in half with no additional layers and minimal embellishments, where the image is stamped or printed directly onto the cardstock.

and I just had to put it on BLACK CARDSTOCK!!!!!OK Chrissie I will do another one and I am going to go and bang my head against the wall. I will get it right...I will get it right... I will get it right.

  14. Carolyn, I agree with you about the comments, doesn't it just lift your spirits to have people take the time to let you know they visited? And the LIMettes are very, very good at that. :-)
    Don't bang your head on the wall, the card is beautiful, and it would work without the black base as well. Even though it isn't one layer, someone is going to be very happy to receive it.

  15. Beautiful card regardless of the layers!

  16. Clean and simple yet very stylish!

  17. It's still a great CAS card even if it's not OLC. Sue.x

  18. Oh you made me laugh when I read your post. We all do it! Super card by the way and p.s. it looks fab on the black card stock! x

  19. Lovely card! Thanks for commenting on mine.
