Less Is More wants to be Framed !!

Hi, have had a brilliant afternoon in Orlingbury at their Country Fair held in the Old Vicarage Gardens; the sun shone and everyone was happy to be there.  Listened to some fab music, viewed a lot of local artwork and had a good rummage through the stalls.  Martin bought two watercolour pictures and I bought a frame.  He also won a box of chocolates and gave them to me........what a brilliant man................lol

Anyways, Chrissie and Mandy the hardworking duo of Less Is More have set the challenge this week of a One Layer Card - 'In the Frame'.

This morning my order arrived from Happy Daze, which I hadn't expected to arrive until Monday (such a quick service, brill), so with glee I inked  up (Versafine Vintage Sepia) one of my new stamps from Lost Coast Designs and also used a stamp by TJ Designs for the greeting.  I hope you like it as the LCD stamp is rather unusual

I would also like to enter this card for the Stampotique Challenge which is Clean and Simple which is another fabulous blog with some great designers.

Thank you for popping in and hope you all have a great weekend.  We are off tomorrow for a woodland walk which will be good if the weather stays nice.  Take care,  Annette x
