Off Centre

Yay!! I've actually made a card!! Things are very slowly improving and it was lovely to get back in the Little Princess craft room and get creating again.

This week's challenge over at Less Is More is "Off centre" ie to make a card with little or no symmetry but still achieve perfect balance.

It's a technique I use a lot and I hope this is what I've managed with this creation. As well as stamping the frame off centre, I even stamped the sentiment off centre too.

The beautiful frame stamp and sentiment is by Papertrey Ink. As a little pick me up I ordered a load of craft stash from PTI. And I was lucky enough to win some PTI buttons in addition to some other fab stash from the lovely Emma recently-thank you Emma for all the lovely candy.

Well I am hoping things continue to improve so I get some more crafting done. Trouble is the weather is so fantastic...I'm torn between the craft room or sitting outside in the garden with a glass of ice cold lemonade. Hopefully I'll end up doing both!


Enjoy your Easter and I hope you have the lovely weather too.
