Don't be Square

Don't be Square is the challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday Challenge and I had this idea of house card but being full of the cold wasn't the best time to work this out. Its OK when I went to Bristol for a card day in April we made a house card and I could use if for a template, now all I needed to know where did I put it. Its obviously in a safe place cos I couldn't find it and the idea was firmly fixed in my head.
Actually I'm quite pleased how it turned out, the papers are some scraps of Crate Paper I wasn't going to use new papers for what was to start with an experiment. Dinky flowers are a punch and the leaves are a MS snowflakes cut into three.
Don't forget to check out the DT and the fabulous prizes this week.
To prove how poorly I've been I rang the Dentist yesterday to cancel my appointment on Monday he doesn't want me coughing and spluttering all over him, thoughtful of me don't you think. It would be if my appointment was for Monday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's for the following week!
Hopefully I shall be feeling better today cos I'm off to MJ's crop and we have the fab Kirsty Wiseman giving a class.
