Sepia and White Poppies

Hi friends, wow it's July already ....time
flies by so quickly these days ! Just back
from a quick holiday to Somerset, Devon 
and Dorset. More about that below.

As it's Saturday yet again I have my usual 
'Less is More' card to share with you. It's
 a colour theme this time and.....
'Colours Of Your Kitchen'

Ours has Spanish sweet chestnut wooden
 units, white walls and cream linen roman 
blinds (made by me).
The work surfaces are grey/white flecked
 and the floor is cream rough textured 
with grey grout.

We really need a new kitchen but as we 
intend to move house soon it's just not
 happening! It's very large and square
 which  I love and plenty of units so.....
 Anyway come and have a look at my
card. I went with a simple brown and
 white combo with lots of texture ;)
I spattered a bit of gold ink and did
 some  random ink swiping for a bit
 of contrast.

Enjoy your weekend whatever you 
have planned. I am recovering from
all the walking I did while away ;)

ps. We went fossil hunting, visiting lovely
 castles and gardens. We found the most
beautiful pub too with amazing food.
 Such a relaxing little break !
Sorry I am late commenting this week,
we only got back home last night. I
will be visiting you all very soon I
 promise ;)

  13. Terrific texture on your card Viv and the neutral colours are just gorgeous! How do you manage to make splatters look so classy??? Outstanding card. I could do with your help when my kitchen is finished because I will need to make the blinds - not done that for years.
