Morning - here it is hump day Wednesday . . . again!

Morning and how is your Wednesday starting off?
Ours got off to a rubbish start but I'm getting ahead of myself . . . Last evening hubby cooked a fajitas. Now he's a very GOOD cook but last night it just didn't taste right and well, it was really rather salty. No, let's get honest - it was VERY VERY VERY salty!!! I suspect the measurements used may have been biggie sized, by accident - he's not all that great with spoon sizes!!
Anyhoo, it gets to bed time and I pour us both a glass of water . . . .  mine's gone before I get in to bed so I go back down and get another. Long story short I made four more of these trips to get water and this morning feel as though I was then on rails to the bathroom - for obvious reasons (who fully wakes up for bathroom breaks - its an instinct isn't it?)!!! Hmm - I won't go in to details as to how this fajitas affected my hubby - it's too early in the morning for that! (as I type this it is anyway, though it won't get posted for a bit).
It's WOYWDW over on Craftbubble and, frankly, there's not a lot on my workdesk at the moment although I do plan to attack the new ILPM challenge which is to KEEP IT SWEET AND SIMPLE and to, obviously, colour with pro markers! I STILL have a scrap layout to do but haven't really been anywhere to take any photos since Kylie set the challenge!!! Maybe later!

There has been quite an intermission since I started this post in draft form ..... due entirely to a power cut, there I was, with one leg literally in the shower cubicle and the power went off!!! No power = no shower!!! Hmmm, no cuppa, no nothing!

Gave me chance to make a card though . . . this one is an entry for the ABC of Christmas challenge which this week is B ..... for black and white. Also going to be entering this in for challenge #64 "one Layer Wonder over on the little red wagon blog here. I'm enjoying these challenges (albeit this IS only the second) and the result should be an A-Z of 25 cards come December! I am definitely a big fan of the clean and simple at the mo, with white space too and this one just sort of lent itself to it - hope you like it

Materials used:
  • A smooth white card blank and matching envelope
  • Smooth white card, cut to fractionally smaller than the card blank
  • Penny Black image and sentiment
  • Memento ink - tuxedo black
  • Brilliance ink - lightning black
  • Fiskars corner rounding punch
Here's how the whole card looks like, with its envelope and insert 

Hope you are enjoying your Wednesday!

Hi Kathy :) LOL at commenting at my 'no show' post! :) Bless you :) I have had a rubbish day with my internet, but I have now rectified the post with explanation.

Anyhoo, lovely card my friend. I too am loving the ABC xmas challenges, and hope to get a card made for this challenge. You have made something so simple, yet very elegant and incredibly striking - (not unlike the fajitas eh? ) :D

Brill card, love it!

Ooo... poor you, no power and just as well you weren't halfway through your shower at the time!!! Not a nice way to wake up, especially after your well disturbed night ! Hope the salt balance in your bloodstream has returned to normal by now !!

I just love this card Kathy, the black and white is just so stunning and that is one fabulous image you've used :O)
