Any chance of an extra day this week ..... as usual, I've loads to do and not enough time to do it in!! That's one of the reasons I'm posting late ...... deadline's looming and I'm out all day tomorrow!!
At least I had an early start this morning. After the family outing to the dentist ....... yes, I couldn't put if off any longer, the appointment had already been cancelled 3 times!! ....... I managed to spend some time in the old craft room, and I actually got jobs done! One of which was this weeks entry for the Less is More challenge.
It's a Colour Challenge, and seeing as how Spring is on it's way (so I'm told!) they've gone for ......
YELLOW and GREEN
Not colours I would normally go for so I'm totally out of my comfort zone here .....
Saying that ..... I do love the new Cracked Pistachio Distress ink though ..... it's so pretty!!!
I've teamed it up here with a little Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed mixed with just a touch of Gathered Twigs for the centre of the flower (hope that's allowed!)
I stamped the flower ..... from another of my new favourites from Tim Holtz ... the Flower Garden stamp set. I embossed the image using a clear powder and then coloured it using the Distress inks, mixed with a little water
I added my sentiment (Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold & the Happy)
And finished off with a little bit of ink splattering around the bloom
There's a little bit inside the card too .....
Oh well ...... Friday tomorrow and another busy weekend coming up ...... crafty get together tomorrow, dinner out and a birthday party on Saturday, then of course it's Mother's Day on Sunday .... I guess the diet will have to wait another week (that's a shame!)
I've got to get on with some serious packing too, we got our moving date today ...... March 31st (eeeek!!) That's only 19 days away ......and so far I've emptied and boxed up 5 drawers .... in my craft room! I've not even started in the kitchen, or anywhere else for that matter. It's a good job we have both houses for 2 weeks ..... that should make things a little easier!
Anyway, thanks for popping by .... enjoy what's left of your evening.
Cheerio until next time
