Blogger and OLW ....

...  well, what can I say?  I suspect that like me, many of you missed Blogger quite a lot over the last day!!  Blogger seems to be getting better now!  At least all my posts are now back, including the one that went up just before the whole system collapsed.  I do feel sorry for the folks at Blogger who had to fix this mess - they must have been under so much pressure.  So, to all you hard working folks - thanks for getting us back on line.

And now that all the Blogger accounts are coming back on-line, I can post my somewhat delayed submission for this week's One Layer Wednesday challenge which is being hosted by Jennifer at Styles Ink.  Jennifer wants us to make a one layer card on the theme of "Home Sweet Home" and we have to use at least two different inks.  Easy I thought!!  Wrong!  Not as easy as I thought.  Then I remembered a little set of clear stamps that I purchased a while ago (whispers - "a year ago, at least") and they haven't seen ink.  So I had a rummage and pulled them out.

The next thing was to decide on colours - I decided to use my new(ish) Stampin' Up! inks - such a fabulous selection of colours.  I picked out strong, warm colours - for an ultra clean and simple design.  Here's my take on this week's challenge.



Stamps:  Stampendous - House & Home
Inks:  Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Early Expresso, Tangerine Tango

Can I say that I'm pleased with how this turned out?  I really have kept it simple, and rather sweet too!

There are some fantastic entries for this week's challenge, do visit Jennifer's blog, better yet have a go at the challenge it's fun!!

Don't forget that tomorrow is the new Less Is More challenge and today is the launch of the second challenge at CAS-ual Friday to use buttons and twine.  So I'll be back tomorrow, hopefully with a card for each of these challenges.
