Missing in Action!

LOL.... That's what it feels like, OMG where has this last month gone I ask myself. Sorry for being so absent but life in general has just taken over (again!) I had such a busy month during May, what with birthdays and things, places to go, people to see, I'm quite glad it's over. Mind you thinking about it this month isn't going to be much quieter, what with more birthdays, anniversaries and father's day too.
All said and done though we had a lovely half-term break away with the boys and my parents at Ribby Hall. If you haven't already been to Ribby Hall I would highly recommend it, it's any absolutely beautiful place and my dad was all for selling up and moving (I'm not joking!) If you check out their website it's exactly as it looks and squeaky clean too (boy was I pleased.)

Anyway, time for a card. This is for the challenge over at Less is More and it will be the first time I've entered this challenge. They have asked you to make a Monochrome style card and this is my effort.

I have used my lovely Confetti stamp set, which I am just loving soooo much, how gorgeous are those little leaves. I have also used the Punch Potpourri (now retired, shame) the DSP is Concorde Crush from the FREE hostess pad, the ribbon is Very Vanilla and the ink is a Concorde Crush marker pen. I just love how it's turned out.

Well that's all for now but hopefully will be back again tomorrow with another card to show.

*Ok how dumb can a girl really be? Well I think I qualify! I have just realized this is the card I made for the challenge over at Simply Stampin but because I made three cards altogether and all in monochrome I've mixed them all up and entered the wrong card into the wrong challenge (what a gonk!) So I am also entering this card into the Simply Stampin challenge too, which is where it should have been orginally (think I need to go blonde

  1. Hi Vicki and welcome to "Less is More"
    This is a beautiful card... I love the gorgeous shades you have used for our Monochrome challenge this week.
    I think that the sketch you followed may be that from Sweet Stampin'... rotated a quarter turn.
    I really hope that you will make our challenge part of your weekly routine and we will look forward to many more entries from you.
    If you could manage to leave some comments for some of the other participants in our challenges that would be great.
    Thanks so much

  3. A beautiful CAS card design Vicki - so pleased you've found the LIM challenge - you will no doubt become addicted to it, like lots of the other Limettes (me included)!!
    I love the tiny leaves, and the way you've used them - I am going to another SU party next week - I just love their products. Hope you manage to have a relaxing weekend - hugs, Sylvia xxx
