Happy Monday! It has been a quiet weekend on the creative side but not on the craft buying side! I've been family visiting in Lincolnshire this weekend which included a trip to Summer Crafting at Doncaster Racecourse - a whole lot of creative goodies all in one place along with hundreds of other crafters! I managed to buy quite a few goodies which you will see over the next few week.
I spent time on Sunday evening checking out the challenges for the week. I have to say that the challenge for this week at "Less is More" brought a smile to my face - actually it made me giggle! As it it the second Saturday of the month it is always a 'One Layer Card' challenge which in my experience involves the odd stray finger print resulting in the need to start again - it is precisely this that made me giggle as the theme for the challenge is to 'Adapt a finger print'! I spend a great deal of my time trying to keep ink off of my fingers!
I did have an idea or two but when I checked the early entries most of my ideas were already there, so back to the drawing board! I decided to go with the floral theme and try an create a Hydrangea. This is what I came up with:
I'm not happy with the result but I have been determined this year to enter the "Less is More" challenge each week and this week is not going to be the exception!! I might try again later in the week but I'm not very keen on having inky fingers!
