Good Morning

Hope you are all having a relaxing weekend, I ended up having a fairly busy Saturday and never got to make a start on my card for the Less Is More challenge.  As it turned out I needed the extra day to think about that I was going to do.  I thought Chrissie & Mandi had set a difficult challenge last week but this week has taken the biscuit, (well for me anyway).  This weeks challenge is 'Script' so the card is to include text of any kind in addition to any sentiment.

Arrrghhh I don't know if I was being dumb, blonde, having crafter block or all three but I just couldn't think what to make.  And to top it all off it had to be a one layer card, so no double sided sticky tape in sight! Anyway the idea came to me this morning and this is what I ended up with.

Supplies Used:
Whimsie Doodles - Margarita Digi Stamp
Glossy Accents
Recipe found online and typed into word.

Not sure why I was thinking about cocktails this morning, I promise I don't have any sort of drink problem, maybe because I have been on taxi duty all weekend I have missed my Friday night glass of wine!

Now that I have finally got my card sorted I can nip over and see what other wonderful creations everybody else has made.  I'm sure everybody else has found this challenge simple and have thought up some great ideas!

Thanks for visiting
