Less is More # 12 Off Centre, and an award.

Hello all from a beautiful hot sunny Hull.

Why am I in the loft on a lovely day like today? Well it`s Less is More, 
day of course. This weeks challenge is to make a card with the image `Off Centre`. Shouldn`t be a problem for me as I`m slightly left of normal anyway lol. I had a mad urge to make a pretty card today. I think it`s with all the easter things in the shops and the sunshine, so this is what I`ve made.
Pretty straightforward really.
A6 top fold landscape card.
I stamped the leaves from PTI with Versacolour Fresh Green.
Then stamped the sentiment from Rubbadubbado in Forest Green.
I made the flowers with some tissue that I bought in Poundland. Brilliant value, 6 large sheets in spring colours for £1, can`t go wrong. I finished them off with some gem brads.
And that`s it, really quick and simple and so nice of Lady and Diva LIMette to give us an easy challenge this week. Watch this space...there could be more to come.



A couple of weeks ago I was given an award by the lovely Viv at Daisy Mae`s Blogspot 
Thank you so much Viv :) This is the first chance I`ve had to spend enough time on the PC to collect it, sorry.
I now have to do the following;

Step 1 - Make a post linking back to the person who gave you the award!
Step 2 - Share 7 random things about yourself..... I have done this in an earlier Award
Step 3 – Award 7 recently discovered bloggers with this award
Step 4 – Contact these bloggers and tell them they’ve won the award

Here are the people I think are deserving of this award and worthy of a visit from you all.

  24. Pretty card Lynne and thanks so much for giving me the award. I shall have a think about what nuggets to share with everyone!

    Did you punch through the tissue paper or just cut it out with scissors? it's a great idea and so effective
