Shape Up at MAWTT

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
We are well and truly back to normal following the summer holidays here in the Simpson household - Jack was back at school yesterday and my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver came to play as usual and my DH was working away in Edinburgh.
Today he is working from home - where he prefers to be - might have something to do with the regular delivery of coffee and treats :o)

So this week I'm playing host over at 


and I have picked the theme


Don't worry - nothing too physical - just looking for shaped cards - anything but square :o)

It will be Jack's birthday in a couple of weeks so I took the opportunity to make a card for Oliver to send

Card Ingredients:
Image: LOTV Pre-Coloured Art Pad 5 'Action Time'
Design Papers: LOTV 'Father Knows Best'
Card Base and Layers: Go-Kreate 'Frilly #10'
Sentiment Tags: LOTV Set 69 'Family Sentiments' and Set 24 'Sentiment Tags'
Numbers: Tim Holtz 'Word Play' die cute twice and offset for a shadow effect and then coated with Glossy Accents
Football Button from stash

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the fabulous work from my DT buddies.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Crafting by Designs - Anything Goes
Penny's Paper Crafty - Anything Goes
Lexi's Creations - Sparkle and Shine
The Corrosive Challenges - Let's Hear if For the Boys

Thanks for popping by to see me today and for all your lovely comments left recently.

I'm off to have some fun in my little crafty haven before preparing a scrummy Chicken Pie for tea - Aaron, Kerry and Oliver are coming later - see as I said - all back to normal - just as I like it :o)

Have a fabulous day.
