and another




well I hope I'm on a roll!! LOL This is Mar 30th dare on dcm. Love doing these. I just realized though that I have a tendency to reach for the tried and true instead of branching out into the unknown. My comfort zone is too comfortable. I'm going to try this one again in different colours.

Strictly Monochrome

After the sunshine comes the rainbow!
But this is red OR yellow OR pink OR green...
This week you can do ANYTHING you like on a card BUT you can only use one colour.
I (Lythan) have been very strict with the team and quite frankly enjoy the power when they come begging to be allowed to use just a hint of one other colour. I did in the end allow black for the sentiment particularly if you do an all white card. But the real idea is to have fun with just one colour and see just what variation there is.

This is also a huge thank you to all of you who visit my blog and are kind enough to leave wonderful comments about my art . Those comments mean the world to me. so

Thank you!!!


I did this one for me! I got this scrummy (thanks Gillian! LOL) paper during the closeout sale but only got 1 sheet! How silly is that? As soon as I saw it I knew it was made for these stamps from CTMH. But I still can't believe I picked up only 1 sheet!!!? I don't think I'm finished with this card yet. May end up colouring the fairies! May not!

Your cards are lovely. Must say the Thank You card is just beautiful, it looks sort of warm and cuddly in the brown-y shades, love the big circle and the font you've used.
