FEELING BLUE AT LESS IS MORE!

Hi everyone - hope you are all enjoying the fabulous weather. 
Mandi and Chrissi at Less is More have set a fabulous challenge this week for all 
blogging Limettes out there - SHADES OF BLUE. 
I have missed the last couple of challenges, but am pleased to be able to join in this week, and use 
my brand new La Blanche Roses stamp - a birthday gift from one of my lovely Followers.



The ink colours used are - 
Text stamp (Crafty Individuals) - Adirondack Stonewashed in the centre and Versacolor Lapis Lazuli around the edges.
Roses Stamp - SU Night of Navy
Sentiment (HOTP) - Versafine Majestic Blue
The images have been swirled with pale blue craft chalk (which you can barely see)!!
The pale blue thread is some really ancient Anchor Pearl Cotton (used for embroidery I think)? All things come in useful eventually!!
*********
Have a fabulous week wherever you are and whatever you are doing.  
I am going to see my 11 year old Grandson in his last Junior School concert tomorrow - he is The Artful Dodger in "Oliver", and will be making the huge leap into "big school" in September.

Love to all ~

Fabulous card Sylvia, love the layout, nice shades of blue.
Aww I wonder if you will shed a tear or two. I find it really strange that one couldn't wait for your own children to grow up and move on but I don't want my Grandson's to grow up, I want them to stay as sweet little angels, well the eldest one that is, the youngest 2.5 is the Devil in disguise but 'butter wouldn't melt' at times.
