The Eyes have it!


The one layer theme this week at Less is More is The Eyes Have It!  There were some fabulous inspiration cards from the team, one of which reminded me of an unused stamp I have by Simon Says Stamp - Only Have Eyes For You.  I believe it arrived after Valentine's Day so was put away at the time.



The inspiration for my card (as so many do) came from Therese, who made this card a while back and while I couldn't use her clever technique of the spotlight, it was a great help to me in deciding how and where to place my little character.  I'm happy I have this OLC CAS nailed today lol!

If you're still here, you might like to see the little shaker spider I made, directly copying Jen Shultz who used Taylored Expressions dies to make hers.  I love Taylored Expressions products, but needed mine quickly to take up to Brisbane in a week or so, to make with our little girls, so I improvised and cut the legs by hand.  As you may know, they returned at the beginning of this year from the States, and the youngest one (just 7) on hearing that Halloween isn't such a big thing in Oz remarked:  'I couldn't live in a country that doesn't celebrate Halloween'.!!  What a hoot!  So this is my way of alleviating her 'pain':)  They are loving being back, needless to say - it's still about 23C there - they don't seem to have had any winter this year:)  I felt I could share this today as it also has 'eyes'.
