At Last!

Apologies for my lack of blogging and visiting blogs but I seem to have had one of those weeks when I've been on the go all the time but not achieved very much - hope I don't get too many like that.  I've only just come around to making a card for the Make My Monday challenge which is the final week of the colour wheel theme - using split complimentaries.
Again I found these colours a bit challenging to use together but that's what it is all about really so here is my effort using papers and an image from Funky Hand.  I've done some paper piecing with the image, added ribbon and some flowers in the right colours and that's it - fairly quick to make once I'd decided what to do and could be a cheerful retirement card maybe.  Looking forward now to see what their Design Team have for us during August.

Edited - I've just re-read the MMM post and see they are having a well deserved break through August


  1. Love the image and the sentiment Val, such a lovely card:)I'll miss the MMM challenge this month and we are on holiday the first two weeks of August so I'll be having withdrawal symptoms!

  2. Goodness those colours are a right combination - even if they are split complementary, now that's given me an idea for the Twinchies Bright colours!!
    I think your idea of a retirement card is quite delightful & I love the cheekiness of the cat.
