Less is More wk 12 - off centre

Yay, Chrissie and Mandi have been kind to us this week and given us a non-scary challenge at Less is More :o)  This week they want to see off centre creations... I do this quite often without thinking about it, but it's funny how tricky it can be when you're actually trying to do it!  This is what I ended up with...



I've used a fab stamp set from Pink Gem Designs, stamped in 'tangelo' memento ink onto Papermill linen card.  The paper is Echo Park 'walk in the park' with aqua core'dinations cardstock.  I've used my new Tim Holtz on the edge die for the scallop border - a sneaky purchase when I was demoing last week!  Finished off with a button from my stash.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
It's thundering here at the moment although it's still really warm - no rain yet though... probably our fault for hanging washing out 10mins before it started lol.  I'm fairly sure I won't manage to blog again this weekend, so I'll wish you all a very happy Easter!  Hope you all have a fabby time and enjoy eating lots of yummy choccie :o)

Oh, just remembered... Dex did something really cute today... Pav took him to the park this morning and they went in the brand new refurbished playground that has only just opened.  Dex was beyond thrilled, he loves playgrounds, and there's a huge sandpit with sit-on diggers.  He loved it!  Anyway, apparently he climbed up the ladder to the slide, and was just about to slide down when he said he needed to tell Daddy something.  So he climbed down the ladder, said 'I love you Daddy' and then went back up the ladder.  So cute :o)

  3. You've hit the nail precisely on the head with your comment about this week's challenge... Mandi and I do this all the time but because we'd set it as a challenge, it seemed that much more difficult!
    Your card however is another triumph!
    Thanks for a super submission!
