More *less is more* and a Bird House

Yesterday was a busy day, preparing for an event that will take place tomorrow....But I found time to make three clean and simple cards.
The first one is my second entry for *Less is more* - Masculine:
The sentiment means *Everyone has stupid ideas; a wise man keeps quiet about them*
The other 2 cards were just for fun, still playing with my new stamps and colours....

I am starting to really enjoy *Less is more*, startling, but true!
But I still like messing around, and making things that nobody really needs - like this little bird house....once again, just for fun. I used paper from Graphics 45, and scraps of cardboard for the roof and perch. The bird and the *door* surrounding have been made from scraps of copper coloured metal foil, the flowers are from my stash.
Thanks for looking, and especially to all those who take time to leave a comment. Have a great day!

  15. I never thought that I would hear you say that you are enjoying CAS!!! Never in a million years ..... !!! However, I am enjoying looking at your CAS cards, and I especially love the middle one with the swirl, and I love love love your bird house! Who wants to be practical and just make things that people need? It's far more fun to make something different, so keep up the good work!

    Hugs and sparkles

  22. Love all of it! You are having so much fun and 'less is more' is an interesting idea ... for a person who believes you can never have too much stuff on one page! ha ha. Would you like to do a swap, Valeria. An envelope full of art stuff from Mexico could be yours if you send me one from Germany. :o). If you are interested, please post your e-mail address on my blog. I won't publish it. Then we can talk. Love your stuff. hugs from Mexico
