Less is More week 44 colour

Well here we are at the start of another week and one  week closer to Christmas, which is a bit scary, as I haven't finished my shopping! It's my sister Karen's turn to be host this year so no Christmas dinner for me to worry about!
 I'd like to thank everyone for the birthday wishes that were left on my blog last Friday,  I had a lovely day culminating in a fabulous French meal with Jim and my best friend and her husband. I also got very excited when I was asked to be a guest on the DT for Make My Monday this month, woo hoo!! Then this morning another email to say I'd won some pearls from the Simplicity blog. I may have to buy a lottery ticket this week:)

Anyway I digress and so onto this weeks challenge that Chrissie and Mandi have set for us over at Less is More. It is a colour week and they have chosen GREEN. Not a colour choice I use very often but better than ORANGE!! So here is what I have come up with.


 I stamped the sentiment (no name, bought in Canada) with Spanish Olive versamagic and mounted onto pearl green card. With a glue pen and chameleon glitter I highlighted the letters and the branches which were from an SU punch. Apologies for the poor photo quality as it's difficult to see the the glitter on the letters and the gems are a very pale green.
I have also entered it into the MMM challenge which is to use glitter on a seasonal card.
Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving a comment as I love to visit you:)
