Happy Sunday All!
Well the Jubilee weekend has got off to a bad start weather wise.We have heavy rain up here and it looks to be set in for the day. Mind you we shouldn`t expect any different really, seeing as it always rains on bank holiday`s. Mother Nature has a weird sense of humour sometimes.
We have a colour challenge this week at Less is More. The ladies want to be all patriotic and use
Red White & Blue
I must admit to struggling a bit (again) with this one. I felt a bit odd yesterday and couldn`t muster up much enthusiasm and then I woke up this morning with a rotten head cold. I also didn`t want to go down the obvious route of using the Union Flag but couldn`t thinkof anything that hadn`t already been done. There are some fabulous entries already this week. I finished up making this half hearted effort which I`m not very proud of.
With hindsight I think I should have stamped something in the rectangle before adding the daisy and butterflies.
I masked of a rectangle with post- its and inked it up with Memento Bahama Blue and Danube Blue, then made a frame with nestie rectangles.
I punched two daisies and layered them up adding a clear gem to the centre.
Then I punched some tiny butterflies in red, white and blue card and arranged them over the frame adding a tiny gem to each.
Again with hindsight I should have done my sentiment straight onto the card but left it too late so I`ve cut one out and raised it with foam pads.
As I said I`m not 100% happy with this one but I`m blaming my fuzzy head lol.
Enjoy your extended weekend and I hope the weather gets much better. Spare a thought for me, I`m working both monday and tuesday. Oh the joys of working in retail :(
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
