Less is More #20 Monogram.

Good evening All!

Phew the weekend has just flown by. I`m sure I must have lost a day somewhere. One minute it`s saturday morning ,I blinked and suddenly it`s sunday evening already.
Yesterday Alan had to get measured up for his suit for the wedding so I dragged him around the town for my outfit. Now I was going to wait and go with my eldest daughter because men are hopeless when it comes to choosing womens clothes but I thought I`d have a look anyway. And I found the perfect dress!!!
I won`t go into details, you`ll have to wait for the wedding piccy`s and it`s not what I had in mind but I love it. It fits perfectly and I feel good in it which is the most important thing. Not bad going for someone who lives in jeans or leggings most of the time lol.
This morning I went to see my dad for fathers day while Alan took his Mum to the cemetry to lay some flowers for his dad.
Dad and I did our usual deep and meaningful putting the world to rights thing and before I knew it, it was mid afternoon. Eldest daughter, who`s own personal clock is 12 hours out of sinc with everyone elses, came with her dads card and gift and before you know it the weekend has past me by.
I did manage to squeeze in my entry for this weeks Less is More Challenge which has the theme of Monogram.

Here is my card,
This is my second attempt. On the first one I used Glamour Dust but it came out pink so I`ve done it again using red glitter.
The monogram is similar to the one I used on Son Alan`s wedding invitation. His fiance is Rachel hence the A & R
I did the monogram on the computer using Wedding font with the A & R in red and the & in soft gold.I glittered using red glitter and Art Glitter glue with fine nozzle.
I cut the monogram out with an oval nestie then cut a labels 4 nestie in deep red card ( it looks a bit brown in the photo but it is red honest)
And thats all. I thought it would make a nice card to give to my son on his wedding day if I can come up with some appropriate wording for the inside, y`know, just to let him know how proud I am of him with out being cheesy. I have plenty of time yet...


Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  22. Lovely card, very elegant. The dark red and white look great together, and I like how you've used a paler colour for the "&", so it appears behind the letters.

  43. This is a fabulous entry, just love it.
    I am going to a Wedding this Saturday, I have had over 18 months notice and have bought 3 outfits and I am going with the very first one as it was easier to get matches. Did the invites etc and to be quite honest as it not Family, I really don't want to go as it has all been a nightmare.
    Thanks so much for your comments.
