Black and white thankyou card

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas. I had
a lovely one as you can see in my last post where I am cuddling
 my two young grandsons. It won't be often you see a photo of
 me lol. I cannot believe how old I look now argghhh! Anyway
I wish all my fellow bloggers/followers a very Happy New Year.
..............Esp. all my lovely LIMette friends who have inspired me
all throughout last year, I cannot thank you all enough. Right onto
 my very first card of was a  real struggle,details below.
 It's week 101 over at 'Less is More' and it's a colour challenge
this week which is.............
with a touch or a splash, a hint or suggestion, a dab or a  patch of 
a colour of your choice!
The idea being that the black and white are predominant
 and the added colour is subtle.
Card Recipe
Card    Linen white 'Papermill shop'
Black card from stash
Leaf die   Marianne creatables ( I used the negative and placed black card behind it)
Butterfly die   Memory box 'Butterfly delights'
Sentiment   computer generated
'Less is More' #101 'Black & white with a touch of colour'
CAS-ual Fridays #CFC84 'Thankyou card'
ps. Sorry for the long post.
 I think I have lost my mojo! Such a hectic Christmas, then
 my OH decided to hit the ground running the day after Boxing day
 and start decorating and sorting a spare bedroom.....with my help of
 course.So much  'stuff ' in there arghhh! I am exhausted , but the room
 is quite empty  now, (several trips to charity shop) . OH is staining
 the wooden floors,we ripped all the carpet  out and the beautiful  wooden
 floor is the last one to be reinstated  now.I  just couldn't get back into
 card making for some reason, but I did  make a start on some
 new jewellery which I am loving now.More pics soon. xx


  1. Your card is lovely and the die cut divine

    Happy New Year - my OH has the decorating bug too!


  2. I'm struggling too...perhaps we are all just worn out from the rush of the holidays! But...I have to say that your card doesn't show your's perfect with the negative die and the tiny little butterfly.

  5. Such an elegant die Viv, gorgeous card:) Love the new photos of the boys, Alex looks cute in his Santa outfit, Charlie wore one too:) Your Charlie looks cheeky in the photo, must be to do with the name!Thought you'd been a bit quiet, glad you're back. I've got to empty my kitchen next week as the builders will be back to refit it, so we'll be living on "ping" meals I expect:) Looking forward to seeing your new jewellery.
