I'm so pleased Hubby isn't working this morning as yet again I've managed to sneak in some early morning crafting! The theme over at Less is More this week is 'Masculine' and I actually always find these a challenge so thanks for that one ladies!
I was so chuffed to be one of their showCASed entrants for a previous challenge and must get the badge up on my blog today - thanks for the honour ladies.
I chose my colours using the Colour Coach and went for Pear Pizzaz, Note Quite Navy and Peach Parfait - no way would I normally have put these together!
Apologies for the quality of the photo - the early morning sun isn't quite on my conservatoire yet!
I've used a mixture of stamps here, the 'Happy' is from Basic Phrases, the 'B' from Broadsheet Alphabet and the 'irthday' is a masked off stamp from the level one Hostess set Afterthoughts. Yes I had to use my Stamp-ma-jig for this at this time of the morning! The Pear Pizzaz paper reminds me a little of a tie pattern so on it went - with me avoiding the temptation to add a strip of Not Quite Navy card down the centre, trust me it looked awful when I placed it there. But then that's the whole point of the challenge - less is more, it's in the name right?
Please hop over and join in as it really is a fabulous challenge and it's so lovely to visit the other entrants and leave comments too.
On the subject of challenges, if you want to have a go at scrapbooking and you like clean and simple, you still have a couple of days left to enter my monthly challenge. You can find all the details and the prize information HERE.
Hope you've got the sunshine today too.
