Calming Colours...


How about some calming colours to soothe the Monday chaos?!

I was in need of something to calm me & relax me after the Monday I've had! I knew there was a reason I wanted to stay in bed this morning! It all started as soon as I went to have a bath, yep the boiler has decided to go on the blink again so no hot water & no heating. 

I'm glad to have a nice oil heater in the studio so after boiling kettles to have a wash off to the studio I went & have been all day, making ... phone calls to plumbers & heating specialists! 

So, this evening I've had tea & relaxed a little it was time to be calmed & soothed by inking a few stamps to make this card...

I started off by using the current retro sketch seen HERE and below for the layout of my card and also used the current Less Is More challenge for my colour scheme HERE and seen below.

I matched the colours as best I could & tried not to drool on the desk as I looked at the yummy donuts! 

I already had Pure Florals: Gerbera out on the desk from yesterdays card & decided to ink it up again & paired it with a small sentiment from Label Love: Birthday. 

Now I'm off to take some of the stress of the day out in the gym & mainly go so I can get a hot shower! Lol! There is method in my madness!

Hope you've all had a good Monday & I'll back tomorrow with less life woes & more projects to share. 

Lots happening in the studio this week NEW clear stamps & NEW dies are in the line up for a FABulous April Release & we have a revisited Design Team Blog Hop on the 11th with a chance to win the set featured in the hop.
