Monogram

Hello bloggers,

Firstly, to everyone who left lovely messages of sympathy on my last post, thank you so much, it was very kind of you and much appreciated.

I have been back in my craft room this morning and have produced a card for this week's Less Is More challenge - Monogram. It's a bit of a tricky one this week especially as the monogram should represent the word and not be part of it. Anyway, here is my effort



I masked a border around the edge of the card with low tack tape and used a chipboard letter as a mask and applied D.I. around it with Cut n Dry and sponge daubers. To finish off I embellished the letter with a few punched daisies with pearl centres. I have my auntie in mind for this card whose name begins with A, she doesn't 'do' computers so I think I am safe posting this. Hope you like it.

A nice surprise came my way last week when I won some blog candy from Stamping Matilda's 5th blogaversary draw. If you haven't seen Godelieve's blog, do go and take a look at her fab designs and photograph's.

As always, thanks for looking and have a good weekend.
