Red White and Blue!

I found a little time to play yesterday and managed to finish a scrap book page and make a card.

I had just received the Simon Says Stamp monthly kit which was perfect for making a card for the Less is More challenge of red,white and blue. There is a cute little die of a yacht in the kit as well but sadly it doesn't match the stamp!

I have been following Jane's blog Onions and Paper for some time  and felt sure that I knew her from quite some time ago as her name was familiar to me. Anyway after she commented on my Rudolph Day post I decided to email her and I was right - we had both belonged to the local machine knitting club a lifetime ago!  So yesterday we met up for coffee at her house which is about a ten minute walk away and spent a pleasant morning chatting and catching up!

  7. Your card is so cute. I love red, white and blue and this sure fits the bill. Your sailboat is great and I love th waves! How wonderful you were able to meet an old friend and that she is so close to you. Maybe you can get her started making cards and scrapbooking and you'll have a buddy to craft with.

  11. Wonderful card Sue! And how strange, I meant to ask you when we were emailing yesterday if you knew that Jane lived in the same place as you! Am so pleased you've touched base again :)
