With Love card

Hi there friends, I hope you are all enjoying a 
lovely Easter. As it's Saturday yet again....
 (where did March go to?) I am sharing my
 'Less is More' card today.
It's a colour challenge this week and......
Predominantly Black! 

"Your whole card doesn't have to be all black and 
you may use a little of another colour, but whatever
 you add to your design, even if it's minimal, should
 be mainly black.

So think silhouettes, monochrome, ombre, chalkboard
 technique... there doesn't have to be a lot of black...
 if your design is minimal, it just needs to be
 the predominant colour."

This is what I came up with, come and have a 
closer look.....well after reading my usual rambling
 below first if you so wish ;)

ps. I am busy cooking today as we are having 
the children and grandchildren over tomorrow.
I tend to cook for an army too, just cannot help

 My daughter once invited other people
without telling me. She said 'Well I knew
 there would be enough food....and there was lol!
Savoury quiche now in oven and about to start my
huge fresh cream triple chocolate & salted
 caramel merangue ( lots of
 small choc eggs on  top).

 Already made some small choc nests with
 choc eggs on. Mango salsa, jasmine rice, and 
Neiman Marcus starter to do yet.
Will do the rest tomorrow, wish me luck.

Oh and I can't find a thing in my craft room
after doing  a major sort out arghhh! Ooh
and I now have my new camera lens too,

Happy Easter my lovely friends :)

Love, flowers,LIM, CAS

Viv said...

Thanks Christine! NO, we had hoped the children might leave us some merangue (it was HUGE) but was sneaked into the take away boxes when I wasn't looking !....sorry!!!! xx

Viv said...

No idea Sarah , I was back and forth to the craft room and kitchen. I make so many different dishes, takes forever but why the children keep coming back so often I think lol ! Thanks for the lovely comments too, Happy Easter xx
