The Three Muses and Less is More Challenges

Hi, today I am entering two separate challenges.  First the Three Muses;  the subject Indybev chose is Doorways, mine is a Portal where the famous Frida can be seen.  Later on I shall hang black beads from the bottom and turn it into a hanging, but at the moment I haven't got the bead fringe I need, sob sob......

and secondly this card is for the Less is More Challenge, where Mandi and Chrissie are trying to get one thousand entries.  Goodness knows how the girls are going to comment on this amount of CAS cards....phew, they are obviously made of stern stuff................


Hope you are all having a good week.  Today I bought my euros ready for our holiday in Portugal which is in a couple of weeks and am looking forward to this very much.   Thank you for popping in and take care of yourselves.  Hugs Annette x

Netty, you are so versatile. Look at the vast difference in your two projects! I am so impressed. Both are wonderful, in their own ways. Thanks for sharing! Hope that you find your black beady fringe, and that the gals get 1000 entries! Whew...I agree - wonder how they will comment on that many? What fun though!!! May have to try to enter that one for them. Have a great day.
