Good morning..........

This week at Crafty Catz the lovely Naomi has chosen monochrome as our challenge.
We are sponsored this week by Delicious Doodles who are giving 4 images of the winners choice ........... and kindly gave us images to work with.

Grab a Banner


I used DC charcoal papers, I wanted to keep it simple to let the image shine. Nesties circle die and Whimsey sentiment, .( I did put the circles to one side on purpose, it's not wonkey lol ) black candy dots...... and that's it!

I made this for my brothers birthday, we were brought up on a farm and had an old tractor, but an Uncle still used horses and I walked many miles up and down the fields with him as a small child. I always went to the stables with him at night as well when he bedded them down. Happy days.......

I would like to enter the following challenges;

Milkcoffee challenge ------------- Monochrome

Cards for Guyz -------------- male and monochrome

Deep Ocean challenge --------------Birthdays

Crafty Cardmakers --------------- Black and White

Digi Galore blog -----------------Monochrome

Well back to trying to keep out of the way of my decorator! Not easy as he is doing hall, stairs and landing lol..............but it will be worthwhile.
Thank you for your visit and hope you have time to join us

Hugs Tilly x
