Monochrome Blue


It is a colour challenge this week and Chrissie and Mandi have asked for...........
Monochrome: Definition:

1. in shades of one color: using or displaying only shades of one color or black and white.
You may choose any colour you wish, but please keep all the shades you use within your chosen spectrum.
So as usual I am making my card on Friday afternoon, having had no crafting time until yesterday due to visiting family who want feeding etc!  I don't know what it is about this challenge that draws me like a moth to a flame.. I'm not very good at 'white space' cards but cannot resist trying everyweek.
I used:  Cricut cardstock and cutting machine, Serif Craft artist software to re-colour the Little Claire digi image blue that I originally paper filled in Paint shop pro. ( Either me or Blogger is going mad! I could have sworn I read a blogger posting this morning that their challenge this week was 'fathers day' or cards for men but when I looked just now it was still shaped cards, this is square so won't count! must be going do lally la , unless that is what it will be tomorrow in which case hopefully this will still count????) The lettering is Hodgepodge Alphabet from here which was free for signing up for their newsletter.  Doodlebug ribbon, papermania brad.  I could like to enter the following Challenge:  Less is More ,
Papertake - anything goes  
the paper variety #for-guys
Well off to cook tea for the dog (on an anti-yeast diet, I kid you not !)

Edit Saturday 20.16 : I just got the blogger entry from Little Claire in Google reader when I switched on the 'puter after a day in the garden so I WASN'T going bonkers! Someone must have done an advance post yesterday ..
Therefore I would like to enter the card as I did make it with Little Claire Challenge #9
