Bring on the HAPPY .......

Happy Wednesday!

Pinch and a punch for the first of the month!  Can't believe it's July already (eek!) ..... only 176 days until Christmas!! (sorry) 
Let's not think about that yet though ..... the skies are blue, the sun is shining and it's getting HOT! HOT! HOT! Summer is here .... at last  (yeah!!!).  

It's looking like it's going to be a busy month too ...... hubby has a BIG birthday next week, it's our wedding anniversary at the end of the month,  I'm across in the UK again on a fabulous craft retreat, and there's a new DT for me!  Better get working on that To Do list I think!!

One of the jobs on there is this weeks Less is More Challenge.
We've got a Sketch for inspiration this week ......

Here's my take on it ........

The pretty Ranunculus Field stamp from Stampendous (love this image ..... and I'd forgotten I had it until I was packing up my craft room to move!)  Simply stamped onto white card using Black Versafine ink, and then coloured using Distress Markers and a touch of water ......

Matting and layering kept to a minimum, and a pretty sentiment to finish off ....

As always .... there's a little something on the inside too

Ah well ..... can't sit here chatting, unfortunately.  I'm off out again today .... it's the first Wednesday in the month so I'm off over to my crafty buddy's for a workshop this afternoon.  Lil and I are setting off early though and having a picnic lunch by the sea ..... just making the most of this gorgeous weather, you never know how long it's going to last!!!

Yesterday I was over in Peel and I found this .......

I'm giving it my best shot ...... there's always something going on over here!!

Thanks for popping by ...... enjoy the rest of your day.

Cheerio until next time
