3rd post for today - just a quick update - don't forget the earlier posts if you haven't already read them!

Me again, been a while since I managed three posts in one day and I've only done this one because I sometimes feel like a post with too many challenge photos in sometimes loses it's punch.

Welcoming my new follower Arvy Arvy - hope you'll come back again and again!

Over on Less is More (see it here ) this week's challenge is THREE SQUARES and there have been some fab examples to show just how diverse that simple challenge can be. Here is my take on that and it's different again!


Materials used:
  • White linen effect DL card and white envelope
  • Ranger Archival Jet Black ink
  • Magenta image
  • DoCrafts sentiment
  • Quickie glue pen and Crystal Glamour Dust
  • Twinkling H2O in green - I think it's called Irish Mist
Hope you like it
