Love and Sympathy x 3

Good Afternoon.  I hope you are enjoying your Saturday.  

I've had a sneaky chance to play (supposed to be hoovering! Sssh don't tell anyone!!).  

I'm sure as fellow crafters you will join me in the shear joy of just having a play with your crafty stash.  These moments are to be treasured as it is all for fun after all. 

The less is more challenge this week has issued us with a recipe of 3.  I picked this gorgeous bloom from Love and Sympathy and coloured it with my Stampin' Write Markers before stamping.   I then punched it out using my 2 1/2" circle punch.  I then sponged round the edge with Raspberry Ripple gradually fading it into the middle.  My card base is Wild Wasibi and I stamped a border of dots from Perfect Pennants in the same colour directly onto the base.  The circle was attached with Dimensionals.  I added the hello sentiment, also from Perfect Pennants,  and cut out with the Banners Framelits.  I finished it with a Candy Dot in Wild Wasabi.  

I love the sharp contrast of the colours against the green.  

So for my recipe of 3, I've stamped the blooms 3 times, used 3 different stamps, used 3 colours and if you count the card base I've got 3 shapes.  I'll now be off to comment on 3 fellow players but probably more as the entries are all outstanding! 

Before I go and do the dreaded h*******k,  I'd like to remind you that I have 2 places available in my Virtual Hostess Club.  You don't need to stay local to join as I can set up a hostess code to let you join in on line.  It's bery easy and a super way to build your stash and you get to be hostess for a month with all it's benefits.  The new club starts in April so drop me a line today.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  xx

Clever idea with all the threes.
You didn't think of making three hellos? "Hello, hello, hello"? - oh maybe not!
