Hello folks and hope you had a good weekend. I had a bit of a difficult time on Friday as I managed to end up totally contact lens less after a complete disaster first thing when trying to put them in! I can't really explain what happened - it was just extreme clumsiness after a week of sleeping badly.
As I'm blind as a bat without I had to phone in to work and say I couldn't go in (owing to the fact that even if I'd got there I'd have to work with my face 6 inches from the computer screen :)
Needless to say, I had a horrible day as I couldn't see to do much at all. I did see the optician on Saturday and she's rescued me with some permanent soft lenses until my new gas permeables get fitted. This was just a well as we had booked to see The Imitation Game that evening and I was able to go. If you haven't seen it, I can highly recommend it although I might be slightly biased as I adore Benedict Cumberbatch - such an amazing actor!!!
Anyhow, enough waffle and on to the reason for today's post which is to let you know that we have a new challenge today over at Make My Monday chosen by the lovely Suzi B who has picked Black and White with a Hint of Red.
Quite clean and simple for me although that could just be the abundance of white!
I stamped the cute penguin by Stampendous with Archival Jet Black ink and coloured his scarf with a red Aquamarker. I then trimmed the image to a panel and added a red mat.
I dry embossed the card blank itself with a Darice snowflake flourish folder. I then stamped the sentiment (Lindsay Mason) with the black ink, adding a red mat as before.
I assembled the card as you see, adding 2 glittery trees die cut with a Crafters Companion Die'sire tree die set.
Have a great day and a lovely week.
