The holiday is well and truly over ..... and I'm finally back on UK time - hooray!!!
Some of you may have been thinking I'd decided to stay in Las Vegas due to the lack of posts last week ..... as nice as that may sound, no I haven't thrown caution to the wind and taken up a life of poker (been there, done that, got the TShirt!) I am back on the island, and glad to be home. Although it's not for long ..... I'm off again tomorrow - whoo hoo!! Another reason why there wasn't much going on here last week ...... I was washing and ironing for England so that I can pack my suitcase again ready for another little trip. More about that later.
One thing I did miss while I was away was my blog challenges. I've been busy over the weekend trying to get back into the swing of things, however the old mojo isn't back up to speed yet.
I did have a lovely day on Saturday, catching up with some of my crafty buddies, so we're getting there. Just as well really as I've got a pile of DT stuff mounting up!
Speaking of Design Teams, I'm so pleased to say that I've made it onto the Craft Stamper Challenge DT for a second term ..... whoo hoo (again)!!
Today's little crafty piece is for one of my favourite challeneges ...... Less is More. I thought I'd start with something clean and simple.
It's a Theme week, and the girls have decided to go with using a song title to trigger the old imagination, and the song is ......
Singing in the Rain........ are you humming along yet?
I've been dying to use this stamp ...... Dance in the Rain from Inkylicious, and this was the perfect excuse.
Very CAS, lots of white space ..... and one of my favourite sayings (so true)
The image and the words were both stamped using Black Versafine, then I stamped the brolly again using a red ink, fussy cut it and layered it over the top. I used a white gell pen to add the spots, and Glossy Accents for the raindrops
I repeated the design on the inside and added a layer of red card to finish off.
Well ... I've made a start.
Maybe this coming weekend will give the old mojo the kick up the behind that it needs ...... I'm off on a craft retreat and I can't wait!!!
Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
I'm off into town this morning, usual stuff ..... bank, post office, food shopping (boring!!) but, I am meeting a friend for coffee and cake later, and the summer sales are on so who knows, I may just grab a bargain (or not!!)
Cheerio until next time
