Simon Says ,,,,,,,, SHAPED CARDS ,, no squares

Hi all :-) Thanks for all your fab entries last week ,, there were some really unusual ways to use newsprint ,,, I remember in the olden days when it was torn into strips and hung on a nail on the loo door ,,,, no kiddin !! :-) ,, eee lass, them were the days ,,,,, :-)

OK ,, less of my trip down memory lane and onto this weeks theme ,,,

SHAPED CARDS /CREATIONS ,, no squares :-)

The DT are showcasing Spellbinders Dies this week, if you have them we would love to see them used on your cards but you don't have to use them to join in :-)

As usual we are sponsored by the lovely Heidi and one lucky entrant will win a voucher of $50 to spend in the FANTABULOUS Simon Says Stamp Superstore :-)

For my card I just HAD to use my new House Mouse Give Peas a Chance ,,, aww ,, sooo cute :-)

I decided to make a circle easel card and used my Cricut to cut out the basic circle shapes . I coloured the image with Copics and cut him out using a Wonky Rectangle, I decoupaged the peas at the front, inked the edges with Vintage Photo and distressed with a paper distresser. The papers are Echo Park from the Fly a Kite paper pack. All the papers were inked and distressed and I run around all the edges on my sewing machine. the sentiment is from a HM unmounted set. The ribbon and button were in my drawer and I used a little bit of Jillibean twine to make a bow. Of course I had to add some Star Dust stickles for sparkle too,,, tis compulsory ! :-)

So for a chance to win this fab $50 Voucher to Simon Says Stamp get crafting and join in :-)

And don't forget to keep an eye on the 'All New Just In' pages ,, lots of yummy new goodies arriving daily fresh from the CHA !! :-)
