Less is More goes Monochrome.......

Hi, Chrissie and Mandi from LIM have chosen Monochrome for the challenge this week.  All last week my projects  have been very colourful and it seemed strange to switch mode.  But we all love a challenge don't we.....lol


This card hasn't got a greeting on it because am not sure how it will be used.  But thought I would show you the inside and the envelope as well, just in case you wanted to see............

The Birthday Card I made for one of my little grandsons', in March this year and he was tickled pink to see his face on it, such a cutie......

It has been a very busy weekend because some stupid woman decided to take all her Winter curtains down and put up her Summer ones, so of course all the window frames had to be washed and the windows cleaned, in between times she visited her dearest Mother who is not well and cooked no end of meals.  This woman is either a paragon of virtue or totally mad..................oops nearly forgot she did loads of washing as well...........all this while her dear husband played the piano and worked on his book.............grrrrrrrrrr

Am off now to see all the wonderful creations at LIM blog and to catch up with all your terrific creations.  Have a great week and take care, hugs Annette x

Lovely work, as always, Netty. That woman should be locked up in her craft room instead of being let loose on innocent curtains and windows! Valerie

Love both of your cards. Oh well, at least that woman had a nice musical accompaniment to the housework ! Hope he wasn't playing at too fast a tempo or it might have looked like scenes from a silent movie.
