Good Afternoon All!
First of all I`d like to welcome Rachel. Thank you for choosing my little blog to follow.
The first week of the month at Less is More is always a colour challenge and this week we are to use.
Yellow is one of my all time favourite colours. It screams out sunshine, spring flowers and warmth for me, so, apart from orange, I`ll take yellow anytime. Thank you Mandi and Chrissie, you made my day.
After a really stressful week at work and not much crafting done, I got carried away yesterday and made 3 cards.
For my first card I printed a Quatrofoil pattern in sunshine yellow from Pink Petticoat straight onto an A4 sheet of card. I trimmed it down to a tent fold A6 and added a fishtail banner in white card.
To make the banner I simply cut a strip of card and used the corner of a square nestie to make the fishtail.
The flower is handmade using yellow tissue paper cut out with two sizes of scalloped circle nesties, scrunched up and held together with a pale yellow brad.
The sentiment is from Personal Impressions.
I made a banner the same way as the first card but this time I matted it onto yellow card, then made some rolled roses using a Marianne Designs Rose die. This sentiment is also from Personal Impressions.
I started by printing the sentiment straight onto the card from the computer then trimmed to size (A6) tent fold.
I cut out the circles with nestie circle dies in 3 sizes and placed them using foam pads. I`ve added a heart gem to the 2 plain ones.
And there you have it. It`s been a horrible week at work, nothing that concerns me but y`know when there`s an atmosphere and some of the staff have been really upset, it rubs off on you? I think everythings sorted now anyway.
We decided to have a run out to the seaside today. The weather could have been better but what the heck. We got fish and chips from the best chippy in East Yorkshire ( Seafront Chip Shop in Hornsea) so, no sunday roast to cook Yippee!
Not a great deal to tell you about Ruby but I`ll give you an update during the week.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
