2nd post - challenge entry! If you missed my earlier post then please scroll down

Hi there,

Just a quick update to let you see what I've been working on today. Aside from reading and laundry I thought I'd get on with the Bah Humbug blog challenge which is .... "surprise surprise" . . . . well actually, it was ME that was surprised ...... surprised that is, at how cool Monochrome Clean and Simple Christmas cards look!!! Check it out below and then perhaps check out the challenge, it's a great way to ensure you build up your supply of Christmas cards and avoid the last minute dash to the post!!!

Materials used:
  • 6" square 300gsm card and envelope
  • Papermania image and Penny Black sentiment inked in memento tuxedo black
  • 5 red faux gemstones to add just a hint of colour!

Hope you like my work.

Hubby went off to his BBQ this afternoon though, as he left, it was very black but I'm pleased to report that it has brightened up CONSIDERABLY since he left and I trust he is currently enjoying his mates get together and BBQ!

Catch you all tomorrow

Hi Kathy, thanx for the lovely comment you left on my LIM challenge card. I presume if you know Hartciffe then you might just be local to me as I live in South Bristol. The What shop I visit is at Imperial Park & I get some supa cheap crafty stuff there. On to your cards, both of them are very much CAS & the movie star image is fab. The Christmas card is sweet & simple, what a great idea.

Kathleen said...

Good idea to put the sentiment in the middle and the image to the side. I do prefer this to the first entry but both are great.
