Less is More colour challenge - Green


This little stamp from Dovecraft (it also says Studio G on the block, has been part of my stash for quite some time. Although rarely used, I really like it and think that maybe it will be used for a few more cards in the next few days.
This one is for our colour challenge this week at "Less is More" where the choice is GREEN!
I tend to keep coming back to the simple design of a band of something or other stretching across the card horizontally.
Yesterday I went to Bath once more to see my daughter and family. Daisy was doing a ballet class that parents were allowed to watch and so I looked after the baby whilst my daughter watched the class. She was almost in tears to see how wonderfully Daisy responded to the ballet teacher. She had expected that she might be a little like a fairy elephant, but was delighted to see that this was far from the truth.
This weekend we're staying at a hotel called Terravina in the New Forest, to attend a Black tie, Vintage Champagne Wine tasting, which was instigated by a gift from our son and his wife for our respective birthdays. They were back in the summer, but we decided to use the voucher towards this special couple of days.
I have bought a new LBD and am so glad that I have shed 21 pounds but I also bought some special tights to grab in a few more!
Here are a few more cards with green!


All a little predictable at this time of year, but it's what we need isn't it!
Have a great week and do join in our green challenge!

  11. Smashing cards Chrissie, my fave is the first one with the little green trees & I love the ribbon border. I have one of those border thingies, but never used it. Perhaps I'll dig it out & have a play. Thanx for the inspiration.

  12. Gorgeous Chrissie. The first one is my favorite, I love those trees. The Single tree is fabulous as well.
    I hope you have a wonderful time at the Black Tie Wine event and congratulations on losing 21 pounds!!!
    Though I don't think they are officially lost; because I found them and firmly attached them to my thighs. LOL!!!!

    Back to the craft room for me.

  37. Well, I have to bookmark your blog, for sure! Your green cards are just what I like--all 3 are perfection! I was hoping to see more of the Penny Black wreath card on the LIM blog--I love that stamp & your card may be the best use of it I've seen! I'm going to try using it again now!
