A Quickie!

I found a scrap piece of card obviously leftover from something else -can't remember what! - just shows how tidy this desk is doesn't it? It could have been there for the best part of year or more - it was tucked away under a box of coloured cardstock which I bought last year!

Anyway I quite liked the colours I'd used to sponge it so decided to use it up.

The challenge at Less Is More is to use 3 stamps or the same stamp 3 times. Well I obviously used the same stamp and more than 3 times - BUT I did use 3 different coloured inks (White embossed, Forest Moss and Crushed Olive) so am hoping that counts - if not then I hope I will be forgiven!
The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

Had a lovely day out today at the amazing Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Gardens in Ripon. Weather here has been glorious - warm and sunny and it must have been warm cos dear husband took off his sweater and walked round in his shirt sleeves!!
Was really nice to see some blue skies too!

Weather forecast is for another sunny day tomorrow so hope to get out and about once I've done the washing! Hope the sun is shining where you are. x

  6. Fabulous card Viv - love the colours and the repeated stamping.

    How lovely a day you had, Ripon is such a favourite place of mine. My grand parents were married in Ripon Cathedral - they lived for a while in Bishop Monkton, somewhere I'd love to live. Mind you, with the stream running through the village I do wonder how they fared during the floods this past Winter. I think you've got the right idea, live high up as we do. Keeps yer feet dry - even though yer hat might need to be nailed on!

    Lovely to see you in the Playground Viv.

    Hugs
