NZSU Blogs Challenge and First Day of School!

This is for the NZSU Sites Blog Colour Challenge this month ( - the colours for the challenge were Certainly Celery, Rose Red, Regal Rose and Whisper White. I was trying to go with the minimalistic look with more white showing, I'm really not sure I captured it well - it looks too top heavy and unbalanced to me. For those following from my newsletter - this is my example of paper piecing!

Card Stock and Inks: Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Black and Rose Red
Stamp Sets: Scribble This, Short and Sweet
Other: DSP (from 6x6 promo earlier on in the year and scrap from Simply Scrapping Kit).

... and yesterday, ALL the kids were finally back at school (I think it was middle of November that the oldest finished school so its been a long time since they've all been out of the house!), so here is the annual "back to school" photo :) Hard to believe that my oldest is in his last year of High School, he is planning on leaving home next year, wow!

Have a nice day!

I love your flower, I haven't inked my set for ages but you've inspired me to get it out

Hi Lisa! What a cool card. Well done, and congrats on surviving the holidays as well! Thanks for leaving a comment - it's so nice to read them. I'm sure you know what I mean.. Have a wonderful day.

I like that card, but maybe that's because I'm a minimalist when it comes to cards.
