No Squares Allowed!

Good morning everyone!

Hope you are all having a good week? I had a great day yesterday, because I found out that my first research project is going to be funded! Yay me ;) Seriously though, it's great news and a really great opportunity to showcase myself and the project. So you can imagine I am in an extremely good mood :)

Our challenge theme this week over @ Fab 'n Funky is "Don't be Square", so use other shapes on your project than square. Great theme Angelique :) I decided to go for a circle card, as I hadn't done them in a while and they're always so cute. We are being sponsored by Digi Darla & Stampart by Katherine this week, so most of the DT is using one of their images. I think this Digi Darla cutie is originally a Christmas/Winter image, but I think it still works like this!

* Digi Darla Snow Time Scottie 3, coloured with Promarkers & Spectrum Noirs
* DCWV Street Lace & K&Co Earth Tones Solid DPs
* MS Picket Fence Border & Scalloped Circle punches
* Peel off borders from stash

* Joanna Sheen (Don't be Square)
* Polka Doodles (Animals)
* Cupcake Crafts (Anything but Square)
* Whimsy (Shaped Cards)
* Flourishes (Going in Circles)
* Crealing (Not a Square)
* Crafty Boots (Anything but Square)
* Creative Creations (Shaped Cards)
* Bearly Mine (Anything Goes)
* One Stitch at a Time (Anything Goes)
