Less Is More Week 6

Well legionnaires, I'm 95 1/2 % better today. It helped that I had a stamping day with my gal pals and we had a scrumptious Irish themed lunch. When's the last time you've had lamb stew? And my friend El (this month's hostess) really knows how to set a table and make us feel special. Fortunately, my appetite had returned some, and I was able to enjoy the meal. I am going to do everything humanly possible to never get a UTI again. I am soliciting recommendations from you too dear readers.

Over at Less Is More here , the challenge is to have an image off edge of the page. Add the rule of only one layer and this time no score lines, and here you have my take. I've been searching for a ruler image for some time. This one is in a set by TPC Studio, called Card Crafting. Have you heard of them? They are red rubber stamps with cushioning that will stick to acryllic blocks. They cost less than $12.00 a set, available at JoAnn's. And I got mine at 40% off. So, what do you think I did? Yup, I bought 3 sets. I love that the images are so large. And it has some cute sentiments.
The card is a white base and I stamped the images and words in Memento tuxedo black. It really could not have been simpler, but we'll see how the experts rate it, should they venture here.
I've got some other ideas brewing in my head for this challenge, so you may see another post here soon.

Oh, and a heads-up for you. Sharon, co-owner of Spellbinders, will be on HSN demo-ing the Grand Calibur on Monday at 7AM eastern and again at 11 AM est. This is the only die-cut machine that has tempted me recently, since I've never owned a Wizard and use my Cuttlebug for my Nesties.
