Stripes


My card for today is 'Stripes' which is this week's one-layer challenge at Less is More. I put my thinking cap on whilst I hoovered my very messy craft room (and managed to blow up my hoover into the bargain but that's another story!) and remembered my adapted 'In Stitches Wheel' and, if you haven't a clue what I'm talking about, pop over to Vicky's post here where she gives a brilliant tutorial on how to do it.
I stamped the 'stripe' three times down the side of a card blank in Basic Gray and then stamped an image from Just Believe on top using Basic Black and added a sentiment, also in Basic Black. A very CAS card which could be adapted to suit any occasion
I hope you've all managed to stay safe in the wintery weather this week and managed to get a lot of crafting done because it was too cold to go out :0) This morning I awoke to an extremely hard frost, you know the kind you see on Christmas cards, with all the trees (and cobwebs!) white and sparkly - very pretty with the sun shining on them. I haven't actually ventured out but I'm sure it's very, very cold so I think I'll stay put!
Enjoy your weekend and if you're out and about take care. x
