Shapes, Shapes and More Shapes

Man I just love to play with shapes. :) If you look at the stuff I do, a lot of them have a bunch of shapes on them, especially lately.

This next card, I took 2 1/2 inch squares and turned them so they were overlapping diamonds.


I made the card for The ScrapCake's blog post for Teacher's Day. Apparently World Teacher's Day is October 5th, but many countries celebrate the day on different dates. In Poland, they celebrate Teachers Day on October 14th. In the US it is May 5th. It was interesting looking at all the different dates that countries celebrated it. Anyways...happy Teacher's Day to all the teachers out there, whether you celebrate it now or 7 months from now. This world could not survive without it's teachers, so I honor you!

My Teachers Day card uses some of the more solid colors from the Summer At The Seaside collection from The ScrapCake. The apple and school house were cut using my Slice. The card is pretty simple, but I like it. :)

And I do have another card to share with you too...

Before you ask...NO. I am NOT pregnant. I know this looks like it could be an announcement but I was actually thinking of using it differently. My brother and sister-in-law are expecting their first baby...a little girl. I couldn't be more excited for them. So I made this card to send after she is born. I figure I will say something like "we haven't met you yet, but we love you" in it.

Notice all the shapes again? I got out my faithful heart punch and punched them all and created a background for my card. :) This card uses the Little Monsters collection from The ScrapCake.

Hope you have enjoyed my somewhat funky cards today. :)

Have an AWESOME day!
