Definitely Nothing Like A Square

Evening all, yep, I'm back again, second time today - I thought if I don't get this posted now then it won't happen tonight.

LILI'S LITTLE FAIRIES CHALLENGE are asking for Anything But Square this week.  So I put my thinking cap on, took it off again because it hurt, and then went totally random with a shape ...... I don't have a large die cutting machine so one of those precision shapes with fancy edges is out of the question and a Cuttlebug is just that little bit too small really.  So I had to go it alone, just me, card, and scissors.  I know, worrying isn't it.

What is really worrying is what I ended up with .....

Looks a bit "anatomical" doesn't it?  Well, it is definitely original!

Ingredients are:
Stamped Image  LOTV Busy Bears (which I can't find on website any more)
Medium  Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers  Prima Jack & Jill
Sentiments  LOTV Sentiment Tags
Extras  Marianne Creatibles leaf dies, EK Success and Tonic retro flower punches, Card Candi

Hugs, Sxx

Okay, now I'm crying with laughter at the description you gave me yesterday!!!!!!!!Cripes woman, if I end up in A&E with torn stomach muscles what will I tell them? Despite your description, this is a VERY pretty card. I love the papers and I'm quite partial to those leaves. As for the image - how did I miss it it in the LOTV shop today? It's beautiful and your colouring is stunning. I love it. Man, I'm hysterical now. We'll get locked up one day. Super hugs, Jayne xxx

Just love it.
The shape (in a beautiful way!) looks like "Bongo's", beautiful bongo's!!
I adore it. Love the papers, leaves, colours and the gorgeous image. Well done Squirrel.
Love DebbieX

Your card is a proof that sometimes it's best not to have everything. You might not have that big cutting machine and those shaes with fancy edges, but you have a thinking cap that sure does its work. Your card turned out beautifully. Hugs! xx

Lorraine said...

Gorgeous card Squirrel. I love the shape. I don't have the larger cutting machine either, just a cuttlebug so my thinking cap is still on and getting nowhere fast!
Love the image and your colouring looks fab as always.

Clever girl Squirrel, this card is truly unique. I'm impressed you just used scissors. For different shapes I usually go for the biggest nestie that fits in my Cuttlebug! Love your colouring. I'm so bad at colouring bears.

Brilliant card Squirrel, more so as you've cut it out by hand. We will just gloss over what it may look like for now LOL. I love your winter wonderland card too :o)
