Mono Madness!

Afternoon everyone - what a lovely sunny day its been - its a shame I've been stuck in the office all day...still the bills have to be paid! I'm on annual leave next week - woo hoo! So I hope the sunshine sticks around for a while! Its my Birthday next Friday and I have rather self-indulgently decided to take the whole week off! Ha., ha! I'm going to Gun Wharfs Keys for a spot of shopping with Sheree and I'll be spending a couple of days in London with my boyfriend....if I can part him from his beloved cars that is!! The rest of the time will be spent crafting...utter bliss!

Today's challenge comes from the Cute Card Thursday blog....yes I actually managed to enter my card on a Thursday...it must be a first!! The theme this week is mono madness, so they want cards that feature shades of just one colour.....now you may think that mine will be pink....but no...I've opted for a lovely sunny yellow!


The DT have created some lovely designs, for some inspiration take a peek here!

Maybe its the lovely sunshine, who knows, but today I decided that yellow would make a lovely Birthday card! I've used a cute little chick stamp from the Hugs and Honey range, which I stamped onto yellow paper and cut out (if you look closely you can see my minor mishap - I nearly cut her leg right off!!). Once cut out I decided to add some googly eyes!

I then raided my paper stash for yellow papers and came up with these, which I think look cute together!

I have to admit my stamping wasn't very good today and I got fed up of stamping the same image over and over again....so I cheated! I took my best image and then coloured in the black with a pen! Hee, hee!

My other fab news is that both Lorna and me passed our leadership qualification last night! We had our books signed and the paper work is being sent off....we can now officially run our own Brownie packs / Guide units if we wanted too! Now thats a scary thought!

Well I hope you have enjoyed some sunshine today and have a lovely evening!

Thanks for stopping by,
Wedgie xx

The little bird is adorable and you should never tell trade secrets about having to use blank ink for correcting :o)
