Little Claire Challenge # 15 - 'Shaped Cards'

Good afternoon, hope you are enjoying your Saturday? Have been busy with chores and shopping today, but the sun has been shining here so all is good with the world lol!

Firstly, I just want to say a big thank you to my lovely new followers, have had quite a few recently and its so lovely to have you aboard, I will of course be returning the visit x

It's challenge time again over at Little Claire . This month, we want to see all of your shaped cards, you can enter three time and you have lots of time to join in the fun and win some gorgeous stamps and papers. Pop on over via the link to see the other Design Team cards, all so different.

My card is a 'Tent' one, my lovely ladies that come each month to my classes, recently made one at my class and I so wanted to make another, using this cute little 'Swirly Whirly' Cat image that is now available to buy from the shop, isn't it gorgeous! Also one of the lovely new Red Gingham Sentiments, that go so well with the image.

To complete my card, I have used SU black & cream cardstock. Magnolia large swirl stamp, Go Kreate Swirl dies, MS Snowflake punch. SU shaped punch and Mei Flower black stones & pearls. I really love these cards, they stand up so well and fold flat for posting, will be making loads more for my Christmas cards, which I have decided am going to finish next week.

Off to sort tea before 'Strictly' and 'X Factor' which fills our house each Saturday evening.

Thanks for stopping by and for the lovely comments that you leave me.
