The only thing blue about this past long weekend was the sky. We had amazing weather with one sunshine filled day after the next, it was awesome. Speaking of blue, or shades there of, I'm playing along with the Less Is More challenge today. Mandi and Chrissie are the authors of this wonderful weekly challenge and if you haven't heard of it, or them, you really should check it out. Here is just a snippit from their challenge,

For our challenge this week we would like to see you use
SHADES of BLUE
You can use a white card base, but we do want to see more than one colour of blue, not just one!
If you visit Less Is More you will see some wonderful inspiration and well over 100 stunning entries for this challenge. Yes, it is that popular not to mention there is a wonderful sponsor offering $25.00 to spend at their shop. How can you loose? You can't!
OMGosh......this is one for the books!!!!
I have to be honest and let everyone know that I wasn't as engaged in this challenge as I should have been or, tried to be...whatever! Not because this wasn't an awesome challenge because it was. You see, there was this pesky little thing bothering me the entire time I was trying to make my card. I just couldn't focus.
This darn fly was buzzing around my head at first. The sound was like you hear when a mosquito is flying near your ear, at night, while your lying quietly trying to sleep - ya, that sound! (*sigh*)
My arms were flailing around trying to get this thing away from me. I must have looked ridiculous. This went on for about twenty minutes straight. Then finally, it would land and there would be silence. No crazy lady waving her arms around like an idiot. I tried and tried to smack it dead for what felt like an hour but I was fighting a loosing battle. I'm not lying to you, this insect was relentless!!! It had it out for me, or so it seemed! It was coming at me like it was on a mission. No question ..... this fly was ticked! I couldn't believe it and have never seen anything like it.
The paper I was using to swat it away? It landed on it as if to say neener, neener, neener!
I cleaned my stamp with a wipe, put the wipe down and then immediately, the fly landed on that too. I was beginning to lose it! Sorry for the blurry picture I was checking to see if this insect was wearing a helmet. It wasn't until I had finished my card that I finally caught a break. My dive bombing fly had moved on.
My creation for the Shades of Blue challenge and tale of the fly is complete.
It's kinda funny that I would make a card with a theme of a place that I would have rather been than fighting off an insect, coincidence? LOL
Wherever you are in your day, I hope you're enjoying it!Wishing you many wonderful creations.
