Cupcake Craft Challenge 88...Don't Be Square

Remember! I'm back and in the land of the living and it feels really strange posting a card after what has been nearly a month's absence...I have been rather poorly with a chest infection and after what has been nearly 6 weeks of illness I am finally on the mend! I just wanted to thank everyone who has sent me gifts and cards...I have been overwhelmed with your kindness and generosity and I am so lucky to have such wonderful blogging buddies...thank you know who you are :)

It was a real struggle making this card for this weeks Cupcake Craft's my turn to choose this weeks theme and I chose DON'T BE SQUARE...of course I couldn't come back to crafting with an easy challenge...I had to make it difficult for myself didn't I lol! After much huffing & puffing I finally settled on making an A5 card as I didn't have a scoobie what else to mojo is definitely not living in the same house as me at the moment!

We are sponsored by
