Allsorts 462 - Be there or be square

Good Morning, hope you all had a good Easter.
It is my turn to host the challenge over at Allsorts this week. There is no catch in the title of this challenge I just used a very old saying that was popular in my late teens... a very long time ago.

Be there, or be square.
Basically I would like to see square cards, images and sentiments so no circles, or rectangles or fancy shapes.

This is the prize for this week.



This is my card.
I have used a really lovely stamp set from Magenta.
It is called Puzzle Sets.

I also made this card 
I have used the Penny Black image Garden Poems just because I haven't used it for ages.

Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.
Have a great week.

A couple of pearls added.

Hope you are having good weather for this Easter Sunday, enjoy your eggs if you are lucky enough to have some, I haven't got any, not really a chocolate person, more a savoury person.

Welcome to another Saturday and another challenge over at Allsorts.
The lovely Tracy has chosen the theme of...
New Beginnings

Our sponsor this week is Digi Stamp Boutique.

DigiStamp Boutique offers a wide range of digi images designed by Sally-Ann Hancock. My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too - often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy creating.

We also have this super stamp as an extra prize this week.



Here is my card.


I have gone for a CAS or LIM style of card this week.
Using a Penny Black Stickeroo and peel off letters for the sentiment.
Think I should have put Best Wishes, good luck doesn't seem to be right some how.
Oh well..... live and learn.

Happy Easter to you all.
Thanks so much for popping by and any comment you are kind enough to leave.

Rudolph Day - March 2018

Well here we are another month has gone by and we are on to the third RD challenge of the year.
You can find all the details over at Scrappy Mo's blog here
You have till the 31st of March to enter a little bit longer than last month.


Only 4 this month, instead of my usual 5 as I ruined one and had no more of the backing paper left.
The stamp is an old Penny Black wooden stamp.
I stamped the image directly on the card base then cut the shape out of the patterned paper.
Oops just realised that I haven't put a sentiment on, idiot.

Really lovely day on Sunday, heating on first thing but then not until 9 p.m. BUT snow is forecast for Wednesday, hope they are wrong. Done enough 'Dashing through the snow' for one year.
