Grunge wallet,and less is more

Morning guys,hope you are all well,and okay.  Weather has been awful here this weekend,raining and cold too had the heating on last night I was that cold.
Before I post I just want to say my thoughts are with those poor people in Norway,gosh what is this world coming too,the mind,just cant,contemplate how one human being,can just shot,soo many people. It just horrifies me.
Anyway onto a brighter note I made a wee walet from some grunge paper,yesterday my son came over for the day and it was the first time in a week I have actually crafted,as had a bad week,so it was great to have him here.
So here it is.                                                          Back of the book.
                                                                       Inside using some ot Tims,papers
 
Cover of the book.





I have used one of my paper artsy stamps,then inked over the cover with distress inks,added a fastner to the front of the book then just added some of Tim Holtz papers inside. Then just added a tiny,metal frame with a piece of tape for the inside with the number 9. Then just added a charm to the fastner too.

Next I decided to have a go at the less is more,this week again,and the theme this week is buttons,or ribbon,I used both so here it is. Want to thank Chrissy for her,tip last week,these girls are brilliant really know what they are talking about,which is more than I do he he.
Challenges,
less is more cas,ribbon,buttons,
craft barn,follow one of there,themes I choose the make your own,book with distress inks.

The card I embossed,the flower is made up from tiny hearts,then inked,added leaves,then added the ribbon,and sentment,which was a freebie from a magazine.
Well guys have a great sunday whatever you are up too.
Oh before I go those of you that entered into the Creative expresions DT call,they are doing the call again as someone hacked into all there emails,so if you entered they are asking you to apply again,.
