Less is More Challenge Week 18

The Challenge this week over at Less is More is - "Colour - Monochrome". So I created this card in sepia brown tones. The stamped image is from Stampin Up and coloured with Promarkers. It is very simple but I think that is the point from Less is more at least I hope. This has become one of my favourite challenge blogs. It is refreshing to go simple at times. Especially when time is short as it has been this week. We have had house guests this week. My Blogging friend Christina and her husband came to visit with us for a few days.

They brought us these lovely Macaroons. Dont they look scrumptious?

And here they are on Sunday enjoying the sites at York.
The days went by so fast and there was so much to do. This morning I took them to the train station and we said our goodbyes till next time. It was a wonderful visit.

Today after a quick trip into town and getting the laundry out I met up with my crafting pal Anne to play a bit. Unfortunately I could not do too much as I have to finish a sewing project but maybe there will be time later. Now I am back to cutting and sewing.

Have a wonderful evening and thanks for stopping by. Angela

Gorgeous card Angela, the colours are beautiful and it sound like you had a fun time with your house guests. I can't wait to see what you have been sewing, I want to make myself a bag to carry my 12 x 12s in, maybe one day (ahhh in a dreamy voice). Have a great weekend. :-) xx
