Back crafting ...

Usually when it is the school holidays I have lots of time to create and craft but not these holidays.  I spent the whole of last week decorating!  I've taken my lounge from mid blue to cream in four easy layers well actually not so easy as our lounge has a vaulted ceiling from almost 5 metres high down to normal room height.  This meant that I spent most of the week stood on top over a very high ladder but four coats of emulsion later I have a lovely cream room.  All I need to do now is to make new curtains!

I did manage a day out yesterday with my family at a local Point-to-Point horse racing meeting at Lockinge (a small village outside of Wantage, Oxfordshire) which was great fun. We spent the day in beautiful English countryside on a wonderfully sunny day.

Today I have managed to create a card for this week's challenge at "Less is More" - it's a colour theme this week and cards need to be 'predominantly black' (we are able to use a little of another colour).  I like making monochrome cards but I don't recall making one with just black before.  This is my take on the theme:

I used:
Memory Box Die - Pippi Butterfly
Woodware Sentiment Happy Birthday
Versafine Onyx Black Ink



  1. Simply stunning and super classy Elaine
    Wouldn't expect anything less from you though ;-)
    Love the mini touch of turquoise ... you know it's one of my FAV colours. Thanks as always for playing along this week.
