Less is More

Two posts in one day

I didn't attempt last weeks "less is more" challenge as you had to use acetate.....this was too challenging for me but this weeks is right up my street. You have to make something that is off center so I sat and created this card this morning.


I have used the new Sew Lovely set from Stampin' Up! "hurray" I hear a certain person shouting, "a SU card for a change". I have teamed the manquin up with the new seam binding ribbon which I personally love. The greeting has been created on the computer using two different fonts.

UPDATED OOOPPSS - Great minds think alike or have I seen this before and subconciously it stuck in my mind? Whatever it was Jess HERE made a card which she put on the less is more challange a couple of weeks ago.

I do hope you like it and for those that have been asking, there may be a class on the Sew Lovely stamp set in the very near future....just watch this space.

I forgot to post this of Easter card this morning....opps,



I have already been to a car boot, cooked Sunday lunch and am now about to spend half an hour sorting out the mess I made in the craft room.

Hi! Your card is adorable, but it is very similar to one that was entered into a LIM challenge about 2 weeks ago... Just curious if perhaps you forgot to give that person credit by linking back?

Hi Tracey
Thats a super little set, Ive yet to purchase it though
if i may be critical i think the sentiment and image could have just been slightly closer together, but Im Mrs Picky...no offence
Great use of the binding is that?
FAB idea

Great cards, it's so easy after seeing so many cards to think you have something original, but it's still a great card and the Easter one is too.
