Less is More #12 Off Centre

A very good afternoon on this sunny Bank Holiday Monday I hope you have had a fabulous Easter Weekend. As a family we roll our eggs down a hill here on the island and have done for about 20 odd years! It's a family tradition. Hubby always wins grrr.....we always have so much fun and there is much hilarity! This year I made a Dalek Egg unfortunately it did not EGGSTERMINATE and I came in joint third position with 3 other family members. Hubby and I are huge Doctor Who fans (so is our son) Saturdays have just got even better now! Stetsons are Cool! Although I love the Doctor  I LURVs Daleks even more!  If I could get my hands on one i would have it in my living room. I told you i was nuts LOL.

Excuse my chubby arthritic fingers! Anyway this weeks LESS IS MORE challenge is Off Centre. Wasn't sure what to make for this one however this is what I have come up with.

I have used Penny Black Modesty and stamped it using Memento and then picked out an area to stamp again colour and pop up on dimensionals for effect! The sentiment is a See D's stamp. I added colour with Twinkling H2Os.

Thanks again to Chrissie and Mandi for another fabulous challenge and to the LIMettes who take the time to visit me and leave me a comment. It is very much appreciated, thank you.

Enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday Monday

I haven't had a go at this weeks LIM challenge yet, it's on my list! Love yours. x
Your egg is fab.
We just hunt for eggs in this house but this year the kids had clues and harder to find eggs, as they're getting older.

This is a lovely card Ali, I love the highlighted part, looks so effective.

The egg rolling sounds like a lot of fun. I love how you decorated your egg - did you see the new series of Dr Who - very exciting!! Jo x

Chrissie said...

Love your spotlighting technique card Ali. Your card looks superb as always!
It sounds like you had a really good time rolling your eggs... how do you judge the winner? Is it the one which goes the furthest or stays most intact?
It sounds huge fun!
Enjoy the rest of your week.

Hi Ali, your card is just stunning - the spotlight technique is brilliant. May I nick it at some point? You know each time I wander over here from LIM I just mean to comment on one card and then I look at your other cards and I spend ages on your blog. Your cards are beautiful, truly beautiful. Am going to become a follower this time! I also am a Dr Who fan and am not happy this week as the DVD didn't tape it! Grrrr! Sarah

Love the spotlighting technique & it sounds like you had a lot of fun. I've never hunted eggs or rolled them so I'm intrigued.
Glad you had a good time with the family.
