"Less is More" Challenge

The theme this week over at the "Less is More" Challenge is 'Pastel Colours'.  I panicked a bit when I read it but actually it wasn't as daunting as I first thought!

Can't believe I'm actually submitting my post on the first day - amazing what you can do when you set your mind to it (and your kids are occupied elsewhere!!).

So here's my entry:


One of my new Simply Sassy girls which I acquired yesterday, coloured with Promarkers (with a touch of Sakura Gelly Rolls), mounted onto glitter paper and DP.  I've used a 5 x 7 card .

I haven't added a sentiment as I thought there was enough on it as is!

Aaaggh! A million apologies everyone - when my husband (IT expert - so I'm blaming him) was helping me set up my blog I was sure he'd taken off the word verification. I am mortified because it annoys me too. Wish someone had told me earlier - thanks Mandi).
