Bloom ........

Happy Wednesday!

Whoa!!!! ..... this week is flying by!!!

Time for a bit of fun though with this weeks Less is More Challenge.  It's One Layer Week ..... always a favourite ..... and this time as well as it being one layer, we've also got to .....


I've got three on my entry .....

I'm having a bit of tidy up around the old craft room ...... nothing too major just sorting through a bit of stuff .... and actually putting things away.  I'll never find anything again now but hey ho!! At least my desk is clear .... sort of!!

In my big clean up I am finding things I'd forgotten I had .... like this stamp for instance.  An old Penny Black wooden stamp called garden poems ...... how pretty is this and perfect for the challenge.
I simply stamped it in black ink and used my Distress inks to add the colour

A touch of fine glitter adds a bit of sparkle ..... and the word Bloom is from a brand new set of stamps by Emma Godfrey from PaperArtsy (EEG14)

You can see the flowers are on the inside too ..... perfect!  I may just keep this stamp out for a while, I quite like it.

A bit short and sweet from me today ..... I'm dashing out to meet a friend for coffee then I've to get home and get sorted because we're having a poker game at ours tonight .... apparently!!  Hubby dropped that one on me at 8.30 this morning ..... thanks love!!!  At least I don't have to cook ..... they'll all be ordering pizza at some point .... yum!!

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

Cheerio until next time
