Hello, today being Tuesday is of course on my calendar the day
we start a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. 
Our thanks to Jane who has chosen for us
It's Hip To Be Square -
Square Cards Only
Please pop to the blog to see the wonderful variety of square 
cards from the Design Team.
I must be honest and say, I mostly make square cards, so this wasn't 
really a challenge for me, other than I have used a new stamp.
I really should step out of my comfort zone and start making different
shaped cards. until then here are some details of my card.
A square scallop edged card. All papers matted onto cream card.
All papers are from a paper pad from LOTV - Beach Bliss
The stamp used is by Sweet Dixies stamps - Lighthouse.
Stamped with Chipped Sapphire DI - TH. Blended edges with
same ink. Twine added. The small For You stamp is from a 
Spellbinders Garden Collection set.
