Colour Me Green

Yesterday was a bit of a write off as far as doing anything I had intended was concerned, as we woke to find we had no power.
I called the Electricity people who investigated and discovered that there were just 7 houses in our road without power and the the fault was with a cable under the pavement just outside our house. By 9.30 am a crew arrived who began digging so we decided to go out for the day and keep well out of their way.

We returned to find a very large hole across the edge of our driveway.... BUT the power was back on!
This morning there have been two more different crews here, the first to collect the spoil and fill in the hole and the second to put down the tarmac.
Crew 1

Crew 2

This second crew are just finishing the surface of the pavement as I type.
All would be well you might think, except once the power was back on we realised that the central heating wasn't working, so today I'm awaiting the arrival of a gas service engineer to sort that!
There's also an error light on one of the freezers, but the food all seems to be fine!

Enough of that and on to this card which is Colour Me
I cut the stencil on my Silhouette and it was quite a job to get all the bits of acetate off the carry mat afterwards. But I thinking making stencils in this way is great.
The inks are Mowed Lawn and Bundled Sage and the panel was cut with a SSS stitched rectangle. The butterflies are from Memory Box and the sentiment from Clearly Besotted.


  1. A lovely card, Chrissie!!!! Your stencilled bg with the stamped leaf is the perfect backdrop for those fabulous butterflies!!!! Beautiful!!!!
    Have a great day!!!

  2. What a wonderful creation in green, dear Chrissie! Just amazing. The pattern of the stencil is fabulous.
    I hope all the troubles with electricity and central heating are over now.

  3. Beautiful mix of stamping, stenciling and die-cuts, Chrissie. So love your style! I find the clean up from cutting stencils with my silhouette a pain, but it is fun to be able to make my own ... and there are so many cut files to the possibilities are endless. Loll xx
