Saturday 2 August 2014


Morning... This week has been a strange one.. started out well getting the new studio painted and nearly everything moved in, but on Thursday I had my new log burger installed and soot is everywhere.. including all over my stash... I have to be so careful as there are sooty prints all over stuff and it's covered my stash .. pretty devastated I now need to spend today trying to clean it off rather than craft! Every time I move anything I;m covered and will have to completely wipe everything :-(  Here is a little photo of the new fabulous fire though!!

It is time for a new challenge at Less Is More though and after a couple of weeks off because of holidays I'm back.  It's a new month which means a colour challenge and this week its mojito colours

color sip

My card is pretty uninspiring this week as I tried to avoid the soot dust last night this was the best I could do

It's simply doodlebug washi tape and a simple hello die from whimsy stamps.

I better get a move on if I'm going to get this soot cleaned up... Have a great Saturday!
