Good afternoon all!
I hope you are all well and enjoying the late sunshine that we`re having here in the UK. For those of you further a field, I hope your weather is treating you kindly.
I`m a happy bunny today. It`s the start of a whole week off work for me and hubby :-) We`ve got nothing planned as such. We`re just going to take each day as it comes and try to get some days out into the bargain. Hopefully there`ll be plenty of crafting time too.
Anyway, onto this weeks challenge at Simply Less is More. It`s one layer week again and we are asked to focus on FOLIAGE.
I have quite a few leaf and foliage stamps but still couldn`t decide on a design. My first one was a disaster but this one I`m actually rather pleased with, ( now doesn`t that make a refreshing change) ha ha.
I started by embossing a rectangle onto Linen card.
After masking off my rectangle I used decorative chalks in lime green, bright yellow and orange to fill the space.
The leaf stamp is one of a set from Hero Arts called Real Leaves, stamped in clear ink and embossed in gold EP.
The sentiment is from Paptrey Inc Autumn Abundance set.
Yes, I`m chuffed with this one.
Edited to add, I`m entering this card into Susan`s One Layer Wednesday Challenge which I meant to do yesterday but forgot with all the excitment of making a card I actually like.
Ruby thoroughly enjoyed her first day at school this week and couldn`t wait to go back the next day. She loves her teacher, Mr Weed ( yeah I know I keep wanting to say...flobalob too). Apparently he`s a lovely man who gets down to the kids level and everyone loves him.
I`m hoping for pics of Ruby in her school uniform soon so as soon as I get them I`ll post them.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
