Chrissie, Mandi - how do you do it - I needed a thank you card, I needed it to go in this morning's post and I needed to do it atop the crisis piles of scrapbook supplies that are strewn about waiting to be considered, decided on and packed or *cough* put away before tomorrow's crop. See, I need daylight these days. So I checked my facts, thought about it for about 30 seconds and set about the card you see here. I only have this one Tsmugi card left so thought it would be put to good use. An I was pleased with it, and as you can see, I thought I had the shades of blue without a problem and the three squares - well, not perfect matches but they show off the image well, and so it was a good five minute card considering the circs.
And then I decided to photograph it and enter your Less is More challenge. And I picked it up, put it on the table in the (sun filled, rather lovely - expect that the windows very obviously need cleaning now) conservatory. And lo and behold, I had transferred an ugly great thumb print to the left edge. Which is why I'm not showing it - you'd be able to identify me in a jiffy. Did I mention it was my last Tsmugi card? (By which I mean Hero Arts 'crinkly' fine cardstock). I did? Hmmm. Or Grrrr. So, luckily, I had right justified (!) the text to the square, so there is just enough room to cut off the offensive print...although from the photo you'd think not - the angles are at play again. The recipient will not know because she never reads my blog , and despite my clumsy efforts, I've just made it onto this week's challenge; so really, why am I whingeing? Because I can, I suppose. So back to the real challenge at hand - tidying and packing.
Have a lovely weekend!
