Less Is More week 259

Hello to you.  Are you all well?
I've been organising all my dies in my craft room so have been a bit busy over the weekend. It's amazing what you can find in your stash that you had long forgotten about.
Some things were still in the packet!
Imagine that...spending money because you 'needed' to have a die or a stamp or whatever and then not using it.  Shame on me.
So, I've decided that this blog will be dedicated to using all the things in the craft room that have been ignored so far.
What do you think? Good idea? 
Amongst all the tidying, I did manage to create a couple of cards.
For today's make I had to get really creative because the challenge over at
 Less is More 
(Week 259) is the Kissing technique and I could not find a single solid stamp!
Pesky things must have gone missing in our relocation from the UK. 

The background blocks were made using the back of a rectangular clear cling stamp.
Worked a treat!
This card uses
Adirondack Inks in Willow, Juniper, Lake Mist, Peach Bellini & Hazelnut
Back of a clear cling stamp to create the rectangles
Kissed with a Chocolate Baroque swirl from the curly birds set (never used before)
Sentiment die is a tattered lace one. The flowers were cut off it.
Well that's it for today. Hope you like it.

And please don't be shy to leave a comment,
 and if you like what you see please follow me
because it is pretty lonely when you start a new blog.
