Less is More-week 94-theme

Hi everyone from a very wet and windy London town! I've had to make a few quick cards as it appears the builders want to invade my craft space to tap into the electrics! HELP!!!! So I may be MIA for a few days :(
Anyway back to this week's challenge over at LIM towers. It's a theme week and they have chosen

HARDWARE
This could include a variety of things, but most probably it will be  something made of metal!
It could include, brads, charms, eyelets, clips, staples, pins, studs etc.
If nothing fitting this description appears in your supplies, faux hardware will probably suffice... as long as it looks good!

I had several ideas and ended up making 3 cards! Definitely got the GOETTER bug:)


This was very quick and easy with some torn paper edged with white ink and a metal seahorse which is actually the National Epilepsy badge that I got for donating to one of my students that suffers from it. Old SeeDee sentiment to finish.


This was a digi image fished out of my scraps bag, matted onto black card and decorated with a press stud. The flourish is from SU Everything Eleanor, another quick card!


This last card was my first idea, using an Anna Griffin stamp from her Hardware set, (appropriate) embossed with silver and a tiny metal key and heart attached with a brad. I searched everywhere for these charms and only found them this morning in the safe place that I had put them! The sentiment is handwritten as you can probably tell:)

Thanks for taking the time to visit I hope to return the favour!

Gosh Val - having a Susan moment eh? Must be the threat of builders invading your space! Great cards. Love the seahorse and also the Annariffin with the press stud. I'm desperately trying (not very sucessfully) to get ready for a big craft fair on Saturday - not sure I'm going to get through the floods though........
