Less Is More # 20 - Monogram

Morning all, hope it's a happy Saturday so far for you!  Off for a tail tidy later and then this evening we are over for a meal with some friends and to sit and see Dave's photos from his month-long trek in Nepal last autumn (yeah, we don't get over to see them too often, lol!).

But first, this week LESS IS MORE have a themed challenge of Monogram.  Now, I love my letters - I even got an A+ at school for lettering in art, but that was about 400 years ago and my hand isn't as steady as it was, lol!  And our printer is out of action so no fancy work from me, I had to rely on good old fashioned rubber for this one.


I bought these alphabet stamps from Create & Craft ages ago and I adore them but keep forgetting I have them so this was a great excuse to hoike them out of the cupboard.  Edwardian Country Lady papers that were free with a mag - the pad fell open at the poppy paper so I just went with it!  So simple.  Black pearl card base (did toy with embossing it but the Toad said it was too much) and the rest is self explanatory.

I will also enter this into the SIR STAMPALOT June Challenge who have a photo inspiration challenge of poppies.
I will be thinking of other ideas while I sit in the hairdressers so there will be other attempts at this challenge later in the weekend.
