The Creative Cottage Challenge 31...Shaped Cards

Have you all got webbed feet and waterlogged wellies yet? I have...well nearly! It has rained so much here that all the surrounding fields are flooded and some roads are impassable...I had to drive through what resembled a river yesterday and I enjoyed it so much I went round and did it another two times lol! Could do with a bit of sun though as it has been rather gloomy this week!

The last two weeks have gone really quickly and its time for a new challenge at The Creative Cottage...our boss Tracy has chosen the theme and she wants us to make SHAPED don't be square...get creating those fab shaped cards...we really look forward to seeing the entries for this one! I've taken two piccys of this card as I never know how to photograph easel style cards...any tips gratefully received!
