Who Ordered Rain?

Seriously it has to stop raining, I'm off out celebrating my 40th later with some girlfriends and I've got a new dress to wear that doesn't go with rain! It goes with sunshine and spring! Anyway, it's time for a new challenge over at Less is More and this week the theme is to use 'a touch of red'. So, taken in the dull conservatoire...


I've used Basic Black card and Whisper White and then used the fabby new Beautiful Butterflies Sizzix Die from the mini catalogue teamed up with some Real Red DSP and the sentiment from Butterfly Prints. I inked it up with Basic Black and Real Red Markers.

Lots of you have been asking, well demanding to know what time I get up on a Saturday. Well the day of the week makes no odds really, Zac wakes up every morning at exactly two minutes past six, demanding to be taken to the toilet and Blake wakes us up at random intervals during the night and usually at around 5.30am demanding to just get up and play! So when Hubby is home, I get a spot of early morning crafting in! Then promprtly pass out again!

Hop over and join in, tis a fabulous challenge.

Hugs
