Less is More - Week 79 - Colour

Phew........ didn't think I was going to make it this week!!!  With a few hours to go this week's challenge over at Less is More is

As it is the first of the month and colour we have chosen
Blue & Green
There is an old saying
Blue & Green should not be seen, Unless there's a colour inbetween!
In this day and age no colour combo is taboo, in some cases the wilder the better.
You may wish to go natural, with summer blue skies and green foliage or quirky, snazzy,
navy and lime. It's completely up to you, we cannot wait to see what you come up with.
I've done a very simple card using Memory dies Delicate Fern and Honeyblossom Sprig and Gentle Leaf from Poppystamps. All cut out of cardstock in my stash with a strip of card across with some gingham ribbon.  The sentiment is SU Heard from the Heart with Ballet Blue ink.  I've added some matching pearls to finish off.

These last two weeks have been pretty hectic as we've been having our kitchen decorated etc - worst room in the house to do anything as it's all got to be moved out!!!  Still, it's all done now and is looking lovely.  We've also had our monthly craft club night this week and so was very busy working on samples for the girls.  We always do two projects and this week it was paper piecing (some of them thought it was paper piercing!!!  lol) and triple embossing on Stampbord.  These photos show the cards I made for the two projects - although I attached one of the Stampbord samples to a canvas for hanging on the wall just to give the girls a different slant on using it.

Thanks so much for dropping by - it's lovely to have you visit.  Hopefully things will be a bit more relaxed next week so I can take a deep breath ready for tomorrow's one layer challenge at LIM!!  lol
