Less is More - Red, White & Blue

Long weekend has finally arrived, kids packed off to their dads and I have sat and watched films and played with bits of paper and felts all day..................heaven!

Really don't know why I put myself through the Less is More challenge each week as I struggle with it every time and this week has been no exception.  The challenge is to use red, white & blue, which I actually did last week for the shaped card.  As I watched Barbara Gray this morning I thought I would play with some of my Clarity stamps again although not that keen on my creation.
As usual I have my rejects, will no doubt be used some other time.  Have not been able to pull anything together today but still have enjoyed playing :)
Hope everyone is having a fab Jubilee weekend and thank you for stopping by :)

It sounds an idyllic way to spend the day :0)))

Fabulous use of the images on the shaped cards (shaped cards are so tricky to work with I always find). Perfect for this weekend.

I hope your day continued to be a relaxing one.
