AYLI (DT) Favourite - Shaped or Standard

Morning all, time for a new challenge over at AS YOU LIKE IT - and our theme this time is to choose your favourite card base - shaped or standard.

My most used card base is a square, doesn't matter what size - I just find the space so adaptable and I love the symmetry of it.  I think there must be a teeny weeny (and I mean microscopic) bit of neat-freak in me that makes the square so appealing!

OK, so I went a bit MFT loopy piggy mad with this one, but it was for my best mate, Pig.
MFT Hog Heaven painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)

and MFT sentiment from Big Birthday Sentiments
Nitwits papers
MFT double stitched rectangle die
Cheeky peeking piglet was fussy cut by me!
and a few Post-It Notes for masking the stamps

and our sponsor is


Don't forget that you must explain your choice of shaped or standard!

Hogs to all
Squirrel xx

Oh my I really need to get this set now. It is too darned cute! I love the little scene and the patterned paper. I'd say I gravitated towards rectangular cards and I'm a bit addicted to the US A2 simply because a lot of the shaped dies I have fit those better. Xx

Just loving everthing about this card especially the 'peeping' piggy. Like you, my favourite is square cards, probably because everything has to be symmetrical with me.

Hugs Christine
