Happy Sunday to all,

This week was my birthday and my wonderful Hubby took me for a few days in the sun of the South of France, it was just perfect. We are now back home, with still a lot of sun.....But no sea....Lol!!!

Tomorrow we are having a small party with friends and I just stopped preparing everytthing for a few minutes, to "jump" on here to let you know it's time for a new challenge at Robyn's Fetish Challenge. This week we are sponsored by The Stamping Boutique, and the winner will be able to choose 3 digis from the shop.

This week, it's one of my favourite challenge....Monochromatic..... And of course, I HAD to use "black" for my card.
I had the "help" of my friend Karen, who is a very talented crafter, and who is kind enough to leave us some tutorial on her blog. Thanks Karen!!!! Anyway, her tutorial was a few months ago (I think, as it took me forever to find it again...Smiling here...) when she did her first colouring in "Black". I don't have any Copics, but I have used my Spectrum Noirs in the following shades : WG 0,5- 1-3-5 and 7, as you can see not 1 bit of Black....

 Here is a "detail" of the digi. I have to be honest with you....I am quite proud of me....Lol!!!!
I have cut 3 circles in 3 differents papers, using my Spellbinders and my Grand Calibur, and have finished my card with a Happy birthday sentiment and some black and silver button.

I will enter my card in the followings challenges:
Crafty Ann's Challenge : Circles
Wags'n Whiskers Stamps: Birthday
Crafts and Me Challenge : Use a Digi
Creative Inspirations : Anything Goes
One Stitch At A Time : Anything Goes
The Poodles Parlour : Die Cuts

And now i am going back to the kitchen, to marinate the chicken and do my Taboulé salad for tomorrow.... Happy Sunday and keep crafting.

Hugs xx
