One Stop Craft - Monochromatic

Good morning,

It's another lovely sunny day here in Warwickshire, so I have hidden away in my craft room which is just about the coolest room in the house in the morning (and the hottest in the afternoon!).

My apologies for the awful picture. I am struggling to find the right amount of light, it's either too bright or too dark! (Aren't I fussy).

My card uses Papermania DP, a Martha Stewart deep edger punch, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, Leonne Em stamen punch, ribbon and pearl from my stash and sentiment from Waltzing Mouse stamp.

I am entering this card into the One Stop Craft Challenge where the theme is Monochromatic (I hope I will be forgiven for the little bit of green).

Thank you for taking a look and have a lovely day.

Hugs, Clare xx

This is beautiful Clare. Lovely DP and gorgeous flower.

We are not having your hot weather here. Yucky first thing and then turned into a beautiful day (but windy). Then about an hour ago it rained! Threw on a Berghaus with a hood but still had to put my top and skirt in tumble drier. Even the insides of my jacket sleeves were wet. Lucky the dog wasn't out for her walk. She just stood and watched me taking down washing - didn't even have the sense to go back inside. But she is a Labrador lol!! Really nice again now but I'm still tumble drying.

Hi Clare, this is just beautiful! I have dreadful trouble with light and darkness when taking my photos, I should really invest in a camera tent, think they are about £20, will put it on my bday list, lol!

Hi Clare, oh my, it's been too long...Sorry again...Hubby's been off this week and banned me from the PC...He asked if I could live without it for 1 week, well I was doing well to start but my feet were itching by the end of the week...lol

I wasn't even suposed to do any crafting but I snook a couple in...lol

Love the card Clare,the flower ties in so well with the paper's, cottage garden comes to my mind...
That centre punch looks familiar, I think I have that one but never used it...I really need to stop shopping and start using some of the stuff I have...

Hope to visit more often as of tommorrow, hubby's packed and ready for work so back to normal!!!

catch up soon

Very pretty card Clare and the flower in the same as the the bps looks lovely.

My craftroom/conservatory was 30 at 8.00 am this morning. I daren't go and look yet because it just keeps climbing until about 3.00 pm and doesn't start to go down till about 8 even though the ceiling fan is on all day!
