Just for Fun - Favourite Shape

Hello!   It's getting chilly now really must get that cat flap sorted just waiting now for the builder so I'm still sitting with the back door open and not realizing that all 3 cats are in!

Just for Fun and Neet's latest challenge for us, this week it is all about shapes our favourite ones.   With Nesties and other die cutters there is a wealth of shapes for us to play with, but we all have a set or two that we use time and again.   It wasn't my nesties that came to mind with this challenge but the twisted box fold.

The triangle toppers on the outside were made with card coloured by mopping up over stamped and the berries coloured with Whisper pens.   Inside another piece of card distressed with the new DI colours and then stamped with a greeting.    The roll up flower was cut from copy paper by my friend Julia, coloured with the same inks and stamp.   Can you spot the robbin?

Neet and Von have used different shapes and in different ways hope you will visit and see their samples.  Looking forward to seeing the shapes other people like this week at Just for Fun.

  9. You have pampered pussies sitting with the door open, Zoe. We don't have a cat flap so I let them out in a morning and they come in about luch time and that's that!! They seem quite happy with the routine though. In the Summer they come and go as they please as the door is open but I'm not freezing for anyone in the Winter!!!
    Your card is lovely and yes I did spot the robin!!
    It's amazing what beautiful backing papers you can make out of scrap paper isn't it.
    Hope you have a lovely weekend.
    Hugs Lisax

  12. This is beautiful Zoe, and really unusual! Gorgeous colours. My cats use the window if the door is shut, but they do make themselves heard if they can't get out, lol. Maria x
