Secret Crafters - Numbers!

Hurrah! for the weekend & Whoop Whoop for a new Secret Crafters Challenge. Lovely Jane has chosen this week's theme of


I've used an LOTV image I've been meaning to ink up for a while. My son, Ben has a party to go to next week, so I thought I'd use it with an oversized chipboard 5, as that is how old he'll be. Though you might have guessed that bit already!! I covered the 5 with Basic Grey Marrakesh paper & kept the rest CAS. The sentiment, BTW, is hand written by me, like you couldn't already tell!

I'm still experiementing with CAS look, but this is even bordering on Less is More! One day I might even enter the LIM challenge! I hope you'l now pop on over to the Secret Crafters blog to see the wonderful creations of my fellow D-Teamies.

There are several challenges I want to enter this in. At Papertake Weekly this week the challenge is to 'Get Cute' How could an LOTV image ever be anything but?!

At Cute Card Thursday they want want to see cards that are 'For His Eyes Only'. This is by no means as racy as some of their DT produced. My hubby sure enjoyed purveying the cards on display when I showed him, LOL! His favourite was Kathrin's. He obviously lives in a fantasy world!!

At Allsorts Challenge they are still getting 'Free & Easy'.

So there you go. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
Thanks for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
