Two for the price of one...

It is often difficult for me to enter one challenge in a week, so to be able to combine my latest creation for 2 challenges is quite an achievement!

The first challenge is a fab sketch over at CAS-ual Fridays.


When I first saw the sketch I was nervous and didn't know quite what to do. Then I remembered I had this lovely Papertrey Ink stamp from the Mat Stack 3 collection. It is one individual stamp stamped several times to create the half circle.

I am also entering my card into the challenge over at Less Is More which this week is "Monochrome".

I have chosen varying shades of green. I used Versa Magic chalk ink in "Niagara Mist", a lovely grey/green, very subtle and one of my fave ink pads.

Right, I'm off to go and put after-sun on my face...I thought it was going to be quite cool today after starting off cloudy, but suddenly the sun came out whilst I was out shopping and I now have a very red face. I wouldn't care I'm normally so careful and never sunbathe...not much point being a freckly red head...it's usually fake tan all the way for me! Just hope my nose doesn't peel...not a good look lol.

Anyway, enjoy the rest of your weekend.
