Off Centre

ooh I'm later than usual to join in at Less is More this week. Note to self - don't plan to do the weekly shop on a Saturday morning as it will make one late to please Lady LIMs Chrissie and LIM Diva Mandi and we can't be having that! So LIMettes, here is my 'Off Centre' attempt for this weeks challenge:


I've used Crumb Cake card for the base and cut a piece of the Sweet Stitches Designer Paper which I love. Buttons from subtles and brights have been added as the new ones in the mini are a but too big! Then I took a length of Peach Parfait Stitched Poly ribbon and stamped the tape measure from Sew Lovely.

Well, the garden is beckoning with weeds to clear and fence to finish so I had better go and do ny share! Have a great weekend LIMettes.

Hugs
