Are you having a lazy Sunday afternoon?  No, me neither, been crafting like a good un and got three cards made today.  Will save two of them for later but will share one with you today.

Now then, yesterday (because we are still laptopless and my computer time is limited - Toad had occupational rights most of the day) I asked my darlin' friend Zippy what the challenge was for this week's Less Is More and she comes back with Peaches n Cream.  Ooh I thought, coincidence, that's the same as Lili's Little Fairies this week.  Never really gave it much more thought ..... until today when I was rummaging through my stamps and found one that I felt was perfect.

I made my card, but now I come upstairs to post it, I find it doesn't fit either challenge properly because Less Is More is certainly a Colour Challenge, and I have some of the colours but probably not enough, and it won't fit Lili because although the colours are right, I've not used a Lili stamp!  That'll teach me to do my own research won't it.  Never mind Zippy love, I am really pleased with how the card came out!

So I've used this adorable Stampavie Gillian Roberts image called Picking Cherries
Painted her in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Tattered Rose, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Dried Marigold,
Squeezed Lemonade, Ripe Persimmon
Sentiment is from Hobby Art and stamped in Memento Toffee Crunch
Matted on a layer of cream Dovecraft paper

So, a pretty little card but no challenge to enter - hey ho!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

A beautiful card with your usual colouring talent, not being used in a challenge, all 'cause you is tooooo busy to read about it properly, never mind, it's given us lot of joy.

Chrissie said...

I think that the green is a bit of an interloper Squirrel!
It's a cute card though!
Thanks so much
