Less is More challenge blog. This time the challenge was to use the colours of your national flag, in my case I am British so I used red, white and blue. I also couldn't resist the idea of doing a 'time for tea' card as that is so quintessentially British! I hope that Mandi and Chrissie will forgive the little bit of pale green on the leaves as I couldn't bring myself to have blue leaves on the flowers! Everything else is coloured in shades of blue and red including the writing. The tea pot image is a digi stamp from Stitchy Bear and so this card also fits with Stamp somethings 'digi' and Fresh Brewed 'hot' (well tea is usually served hot!) challenges as well.
Sketchy Thursday sketch. I used photos of Alex at the nativity service and church and titled it 'The nativity, an alternate story'...the journalling reads 'Mary looked somewhat startled when an unknown shepher clutching a grubby white teddy came and carefully tucked Baby Jesus in the straw and arranged his presents. She graciously allowed him to share her chair - maybe she thought he would make a more caring father than Joseph who looked bored by the whole proceedings!'. As the theme of this layout is Christmas I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Paper Play 'Christmas in August' challenges. That is all from me for now. Have a great week everyone.
