Ruby's Rainbow - Monochrome

Hello All,

Can you believe it's December already?? How quickly this year has gone. It's time for another challenge at Ruby's Rainbow. This fortnight our challenge is


For my DT card I created a very blue card for one of my colleagues:

It was nice to make a birthday card after all the Christmas cards I have been making the past few weeks. This digi was from the Digi Garden and he's called "Sammy". He's so cute, I can see me using him a lot in future!

I wanted to buy a new blue ink pad to edge my image and sentiment so I merrily took myself to the crafty shop to buy Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass. Of course they didn't have it, so I went to the next crafty shop, and they didn't have it either. In the end I deliberated long and hard about which blue Momento ink to get, knowing I had one at home already, chose Summer Sky, came home and found it was the one I already had. D'oh! This is so typical of me. I have been known to spend hours looking for a lipstick or nail polish after getting tired of the same shade, to purchase one triumphantly and then realise it's the same one. Does anyone else do that or is it just me?

I hope you'll join us at Ruby's Rainbow this fortnight. I can't wait to see the monochrome creations!

Also entered into the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge - Monochrome, not Christmas, with sentiment

Until next time,
