Here It Is Anyway.....

Hello peeps, yep, it really is me - sorry that I haven't been around much over the past few weeks, there has been a lot going on, not least of which is me handing in my notice at work after 11 years!  Eeeek.  Don't worry, I haven't done anything ridiculously daft, I have a new job to go to.  In fact, I am moving with my boss - we both leave on the same day, and start at the new one on the same day too.  Anyhoo, it has meant a lot happening, and that means less crafting and blogging time.

So, this morning I saw the new Less is More Challenge which is White Space But Not White.  In a fit of insanity I made a card for it.  I've never been successful with this challenge, so I think my head was already defeated before I had even started.  I'm not overly happy with the end result either but a rather persistent friend talked me into posting it.  So here it is, judge for yourselves.


So, some Bazzil pink and green cardstock and white card from stash
A free tree die from Die-Cutting Essentials magazine
And the hello die from Impression Obsessions

Done.  Hmmmm.

See you again soon with something that is more "me".

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

SO good to see you at LIM! The more the merrier! I'm very glad your friend persuaded you to post your card, because it's lovely. Very pretty, effective and stylish design. Great card! Congrats on the new job to you and your boss. I hope you both settle in really well and you get more time in the craft room soon! :)

I like it! May not be your usual style, but that's no bad thing going out of your comfort zone. Love the inlaid die cut tree. Good luck with the new job - it's good to have a change. I gave up mine to be a full time mum 2 years ago and never looked back - just wish I had more cash for even more crafty goodies! Xx

So nice to see you again, Squirrel! I visited many months ago, to admire your watercoloring, so this is something quite different! You have certainly met the criteria for this challenge, with lots of pink, and your darling tree is a super focal point. Good luck this time around - there are usually so many fantastic CAS contributors, I just enter to be part of the fun, but improving all the time (I tell myself lol).

Sid said...

Annette said...

It's not your usual style, I'll admit, and none of your fabulous colouring, but it's still lovely, and I'm glad you were persuaded to post it. (love the pink and aqua (greenish) theme too!)

Samantha said...

Princess Judy Palmer said...

It's a nice card but it is totally not you. Good luck with the new job and new adventures!

Sharon said...

Your card is delightful. Nice free die too and lots of open space so a great attempt at leaving non-white 'white space'.
Lovely to see you at Less is More.

Lovely card, love the colours. What a great die too - especially for a freebie.
