Less is more week 37 - Cocktail

It's been a week since I last posted - I know I'm useless. I really don't seem to be able to get this time management thing.

I have managed to get a card done today though, thanks to the lovely Chrissie and Mandi for setting these Less is More challenges each week or I don't think I would get anything posted.

For this week's challenge, the ladies have asked for :

You may interpret this however you wish... your favourite tipple, the colours of a cocktail or a simply cocktail of colours. Let your imagination run with this one, it will be interesting to see how imaginative you can be.

If you'd like to to part, visit the blog at:

Here's my card

Not particularly imaginative, but I don't seem to have a lot of that either (imagination that is). 

The stamps are Stampin Up - Cheers to You set.  

I used my Whispers pens for a change to colour the images and some nesties for the sentiment.

Before I go I just have to show you this.  My daughter e-mailed me this photo earlier (for those that don't know she's in Melbourne at the moment) -  look who she bumped into today:

She was at the Westfield Store Geelong to see the Gok Wan Live show and she and her friend managed to chat to him at the end.  How amazing! (If you're a Gok fan that is).

That's it from me. I'm looking forward to a few glasses of red , some choccy and Downton Abbey later on.  Bye for now, I hope you have a great evening and thanks for dropping by.

Oh wow Sue I love your take on this challenge and the way you have done the cocktails.
I have had a go tonight using the same stamp set but mine is so boring compared to this. Love it.
