CES Challenge 42...Anything but Square!


Yay it's Saturday...gotta love the weekend and 2 days off work! I don't know what we'll do today...I've got a few errands to run and then hopefully if the weather brightens up as promised we can get the hammocks out and relax in the garden this afternoon and maybe this evening have a BBQ...fingers crossed its cheers up cos it's a bit wet and rainy out there at the moment.

Anyhoo...enough of my waffle...I'm sure you're all keen to find out the challenge details for this weeks CES Challenges...my lovely buddy Sheena has chosen the theme which is ANYTHING BUT SQUARE...I had big ideas to do something totally out of my comfort zone for this challenge but I ended up creating a card...what a cop out lol! If you want to see some pretty amazing and inspirational non-square creations then pop over and see what the DT girls have done...they have all been so much more adventurous than me!

Hi Donna, you always make cool cards; no matter the challenge. Your papers always match and everything is so well coordinated with perfect coloring of your images - always a treat to see. Sorry I've not been by much. But it's so nice to see all your creativity has been at a constant. Too bad about the weather; hopefully you've been able to get in a little BBQ. *smile* Take care.
