Less is More - Week 31

Well, good afternoon everyone, hope you all having a good weekend. Well it's back to school tomorrow (for both me and the kids), so the uniforms all ironed, new shoes ready and were good to go!  We've had a brilliant six weeks holiday, but I'm feeling now I need to get some sort of routine back into my life.

Something that is part of my weekly routine is the challenge over at Less is More, and this week it's a colour challenge and the lovely ladies want to see METALLIC.

"We'd like to see CLEAN & SIMPLE cards with something that has a METALLIC finish to it... ink, embossing, card, charms, actual metal... come on people let's get creative!

We are delighted to be sponsored by The Craft Barn this month.They are generously donating £20 voucher to the winner."

So here is my little offering:-

A few years ago, I went through a bit of a 'bulk buying' phase and I bought (amongst other things) about 100 of these little metal watering cans, and if I'm honest its the first time I've actually used one!

However some friends of ours have recently moved back to Mirfield, so I though it would be a good idea and combine the challenge with a new home card for Claire, Phil and their family.

Hope you like it, off to have a go at entry number two now.
