Getting in shape

ah, no, not me! the cards!!!

Hello blogworld

So here I am again - surprise!!!!

This time I'm here with my card for this fortnights' challenge over at The Cutie Pies and we'd like to see your shaped cards - that are still cute of course!

We have two sponsors this time:

A prize of 3 images:

and a $10 gift certificate from:

The Design Team were very kindly allowed to pick an image from Heather's digis and this is my pick and my shaped easel card.

Front view:

Close up of image (and I was trying new paper out that I won't use again - look at the bleed on that!):

side view:

and my glamorous assistant, again!:

I used:

Digi stamp:
coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers

Memory Box - Simple Picket Fence, Elegant Scrollwork and small scalloped posie

First Edition - Hideaway

Anything else?
Felt for the flower
Craftwork Cards - sentiment

That's all folks!  It's been a quiet weekend so, as I posted yesterday and nothing has happened since, no waffle today!  Next time - I promise!!!!


A challenge or two:

Passion for Promarkers: Week 166 - colour combo (green and yellow)

Joanna Sheen Challenge: So sweet - no food, but I thought the image was extremely sweet (hope that counts)
