Don’t Be Square!

It’s a busy Sunday for me today, with 2 new challenges starting today and then I have 3 card requests including one that needs to cover several themes – bell ringing, real ale, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and/or Priscilla Queen of the Desert, anti-aircraft gun forts/platforms and lots of pink!!! Yes, well I’ll let you know how that goes, lol.
My first DT card today is for the challenge at Joanna Sheen where we would like to see your shaped cards – NO SQUARES ALLOWED! This is one of my least favourite themes, let’s face it, square is easy, but the idea is to challenge you! I was sent the beautiful Shirley Barber CD and project book. As with the last CD sent from Joanna Sheen, I couldn’t make up my mind which image to use and printed several off before settling on this rather striking one of kingfishers, not my usual style, but very, very pretty. My shape is a rocker card – I love the movement you get with them.
As usual there is a fantastic £15 voucher up for grabs to spend in the Joanna Sheen online shop.
