Your Shape Challenge cards


Good Sunday Morning Ladies, 

I hope that you are all enjoying a nice relaxed Sunday morning.  We had a lovely sunny day yesterday,  there was a good breeze and it was a bit chilly but still nice to be outside, it's the best remedy for the 'blues' I think.

A few garden jobs for us today, nothing set in stone though, we daren't go anywhere with fuel being so short at they moment, due to the behaviour of a minority group of idiots.  I think they should be left superglued to the road for a whole week!!!  

Anyway on a lighter note, lets look at your incredible Challenge cards......


Sue's Description:

Here’s my challenge card my lovely. I got the idea from Pinterest and it folds flat so is good for posting. The sparkle on the snowflakes doesn’t show in the photo but they are cut from silver glitter card. The sentiment is from a Tim Holtz festive sentiments set. The paper is in a 12x12” First Edition “Merry little Christmas “ pad that we both got a few years 

Oh Sue I absolutely love your card, the photo doesn't show the true colour of that card, it is the most beautiful deep burgundy, you also can't see the true sparkle of the snowflakes. You can see the amazing design though. A great start to the Christmas cards too. 

Thank you so much Sue for an amazing Challenge card XXX


Lilian's Description:

Hi, here is my card for this week, hope it’s ok. Squares, and Lavinia stamps.  Hope you are ok, and having a nice day crafting.

Absolutely love your card Lilian,  the skill in getting all of those elements dead centre is incredible!

Thank you so much for taking part my lovely XXX 


Sonia's Description:

I’ve used AALL and Create Endless circles stamp. My background uses one of the HoneyDoo paint splotches stamp and an AALL and Create stencil. I used Momento inks in Grey Flannel and Pistachio. The circle sentiment is from Julie Hickey Craftwork Cards.
Absolutely love your design Sonia, the colours are perfect,  great card for a Man or a lady like my girls that don't do 'girly' ! 
Thanks so much for taking part Sonia XXX


Karen's Description:

Here’s a circular card I made this afternoon 
I blended Picked Raspberry Fossilised Amber and Cracked Pistachio through an Aall &Create stencil  An old Sue W die (which covers the pink which is a shame) inked with the above colours and a Julie Hickey sentiment

Oh Karen,  I love this card, perfect for Spring birthdays or Easter. I love how you have blended the colours so softly,  beautifully blended too.

Thanks so much for taking part in this weeks challenge XXX 


A pretty square card from our Maria for this weeks Challenge.  I love the tile pattern around the squares and having the little fall out pieces scattered around looks ao effective.

Thank you so much Maria for taking part and for designing such a lovely card XXX 


Janet's Description:

My first card is made using TONIC die and their beautiful Mirror card.

My second card was also make using TONIC die and again their beautiful card. The flowers and sentiment are from my stash.

Two beautifully shaped cards, the gold foiling gives the cards such a luxurious touch, I love that dark green ribbon with the gold metallic card too. 

Thank you so much for two beautiful cards Janet, I know you had one of 'those' weeks so I really appreciate you sending me cards to share XXX
