Less Is More - Neutrals

Has anyone noticed a huge discrepancy between their Stats and their Hit Counter lately?  According to my Stats page today, I had 938 Page Views yesterday ....... yeah, right, in my dreams Mr Blogger!  Not quite sure what is going on there but I think I would rather be trusting my Hit Counter, lol.

Anyhoo, I'm having a bit of a flat Saturday.  Although feeling much better than the other end of the week, this end of it finds me feeling pooped and uninspired.  Which goes some way towards my excuse for this half hearted entry into this week's LESS IS MORE colour theme challenge of Neutrals.


I'll put my hands up to it, I rootled through my sets of clear stamps, grabbed a couple from Hero Arts and thought Yeah, they'll do.  The spring leaf panel stamped in Memento Desert Sand, with the little bird added to the top corner, the graphic tulip, butterfly and sentiment stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.

I think for the sake of my dignity I really ought to make an effort to do something "more".  I'll be back.  Possibly.

Hugs Sxx

I'm sorry to hear you have been "under the weather" Squirrel - hope you are feeling much better now.
As for your card - it's fabulous, and so elegant. Love the Tulip stamp and the pretty background.
Re. the "stats" - I've noticed the silly numbers Mr Blogger is coming up with. Must say, I don't take any notice of them - ever!

I love it! Love the layering of the different shades. Of course, browns are a squirrel's favourite colours anyway. @;-)
