Shape Up

It's raining here, as predicted .. a day late.. but it is. So we stayed indoors today. Hubby loved doing the cooking and I spent my time in  my craft room... Now I hope the weather will clear up so that I can take a good photo of the card I did, but for now I have my One Stitch At A Time DT card.

The theme today is SHAPE UP! .. I do need to shape up, really, as I just gobble on biscuits whenever I get the chance..  and no exercise at all.. but for now I am just shaping up my card and did a circle easel card ha ha 

The image that I used this week is one of Stitchy's fun images, Surfin' Santa. As soon as I saw this funny Santa I remembered my brother in Australia, and thought it would be perfect for him.

I wanted some really colourful Christmas papers for this, but couldn't find any in my stash then I came across a shopping bag, which hubby had brought with him from Gozo when he bought something, and thought it would be perfect for my card :) .. So happy I hadn't thrown it away yet.

The sun was a freebie from Pink Cat Studio, but I changed the sentiment on it, and I did the Ho Ho Ho one. The stars were die cut with my Die-Namics die. I have of course coloured Santa with promarkers.

I loved how this card turned out and I am feeling that I will be using this fun stamp a few more times, having some friends from the other side.

We are this week sponsored by Joanna Sheen and the lucky winner will get a lovely voucher to spend in the store... so go have a look at the other girls' projects for more inspiration and then come shape it up with us for your chance to win.
