Less is More - Personalize It

We are bracing ourselves for a hot weekend...but still not too hot to hit some tennis balls with the husband....just a few more breaks in the shade!

We have a new challenge starting over at Less is More.  Our theme for this week is Personalize It. What a great way to recognize someone special.  Here's my take on the theme...

This is a simple card...I started by stamping my image and coloring it with copic markers.  I added my friends name in the sign.  It looked a bit too plain to me, so I cut down the image on a stitched square, then created the tone on tone background paper.  I popped up the image on some foam tape and done!

Here's a close up of the card.  You can see the dimension created by the foam tape.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!



  1. Loving this, Susan. The deep green stamped base is a perfect backdrop for your main image. Wonderful colouring as always too xx

  2. Wow, I love this! The background is great and sets off the crisp white focal panel to perfection. Cute critter too :) Enjoy the weekend and hope you get in plenty of tennis x

  3. Aww-dorable, Susan! Love everything about this card - colours, paw print bg, cute critter image, design, font...all of it! Have a great weekend playing tennis.

  4. Funky, fun and so adorable Susan. Coloured to perfection as ever and those little footprints / pawprints should I say, to the BG really set it off. Just perfect. Have a fun week x

  5. So, so cute, Susan ! What a fun personalised card ! This critter is so adorable and as always so well coloured ! I love your background with all these paw prints, so clever ! Really love your card ! Thanks for the inspiration ! Have a great and sportive week ! x

  6. This looks absolutely adorable. Such cute images and I love the color palette. The way you colored the name looks especially fab, so much dimension, great work! I hope you are enjoying your week! Hugs from Finland!
