Just for You

This week the  challenge over at Less is More  is 'Off Centre'.
Once again Chrissie and Mandy have given us a super theme. There are fantastic examples to see on the blog
I have had two atempts at this one.
.The card stock  is cream, with chocolate brown layering . I used  an Expresso ink pad to stamp the  words  and  flower,  which is painted  with pink cosmic shimmer.

This is my first card, I edged it with pink and am not sure if  the shape is in the right position

Another challenge these cards will fit is
Challenge 131 at the Secret Crafter  which is to use the colours Pink, Cream and Brown
More super examples to see.

Thankyou for taking time to visit my blog, I realy appreciate your comments.


  1. Hello there, this is wonderful, I love both and think they are perfectly CAS, great job! You have some really great cards here and Thanks for the comment on my card:0) xxx

  2. Both are equally lovely! Love the design! Happy Easter!

  3. lovely cards Yvonne, much as I love inking I think I prefer it without on this card but they are both fab CAS cards.

  4. Both cards are lovely but i think i prefer the top card with the square set image and the bottom card with the pink edge.
    Thanks for commenting on my card it is much appreciated:-)

  5. Hi there, thanks so much for joining us again Meggymay... I prefer the first of the two cards you have made this time, I prefer it without the pink sponging and for some reason the square looks happier sitting squarely on the card...others may think differently, it will be interesting to see!

    I actually quite like the gems on the second, just prefer it square on!
    Thanks so much

  8. your really getting into these gorgeous simple but, I've put not as they're harder to do to get the balance right, just simply lovely

  9. Hi Valerie, I like the fact although you have used the same stamps and squares each is totally different although my favorite is the first one.


  10. Lovely cards Yvonne and squares again getting a good workout at the moment! Like others before me i prefer the first one, they are both lovely and one man's taste... XOXO Zoe

  11. They're both lovely Yvonne, but I think I prefer the one at the top. Those challenges always sound like fun, maybe one day I'll join in!
    Hope you're having a lovely Easter x

  12. Two lovely cards, I like them both, they're different styles, but I suppose for the LIM challenge the first one fits the bill. x

  13. Lovely cards. I think I prefer the first one.

  14. Lovely cards, I'm sorry but, I too, think I prefer the first, not that the second is not good, just a preference.

  15. These are both lovely cards, lovely gentle colours. Jo x

  16. Hi Yvonne, I hope you have had a nice Easter. I too prefer the first one, it is so clean and fresh. Take care Love Caz

  17. Meggy, both are lovely cards...but I think my favorite is the first one. I like the square...and I think I like it better without the ink.
