Saturday Again?????

Who stole the week again, WOW dont the weekends come round so fast and sadly go even quicker.  
So with it being Saturday its time to play over on Less Is More. The theme this week is a One Layer card with Stripes. My stripes are rainbow colored to brighten up the day.  Mind you today its a lovely spring day here. Really sunny and warmer than its been for a while!
I used my new stamps which I got from Sharon on Willow Designs They are only a £1.00 just now, yes a single little pound, and do you know what else P and P is FREE!!!!  Ii ordered mine on Thursday and this morning Missus Postie arrived with them all. So had to play!!!!
The stripes are done using an acrylic block with my aquamarkers. I masked off the size of the stamp and coloured my rainbow (Using ROYGBIV) to remind myself the right order and then spritzed with a wee drop water. Then stamped it down where I wanted my patchwork stamp to go. I let it dry then stamped over it. (Mind you although this sounds simple this is my fifth attempt to get it just right!!!!!!)
Card Recipe
5 x 5 Card
Stamps Willow Designs
Colouring Medium - Aquamarkers
Glitter mixed from lots of cololurs to be a rainbow too. 

I would also like to enter my card into Totally Papercrafts this week with their Rainbow Theme.

Off now to relax for an hour, I have just hoovered the whole house, both Jess and Belle have decided to molt so its a bit hairy here!!!! No doubt by tomorrow morning it will be needing done again. Its good though as it means the weather is changing to warmer for us!!!
