Not Square...............


Happy Saturday and thank goodness its the weekend!   Big apologies for not catching up with you much this week, sometimes it just goes like that and you have so much going on that there simply is not enough hours in the day LOL! So I hope you are all well and got a bit of sun today, we have and its glorious!

 Anyway I got up  today feeling really tired and thought stuff the housework and made a card or two and check me out its NOT square!!!  Why I hear you ask, well there are 2 reasons for that, first my super dooper sister treated me to a Simply Scored board from stamping up and it is awesome and I love it and its the first board I have had that I can get  my head round and you get precision scores so easily  and second the challenge over at Sassy Cherly's is 'not square' so I had no choice LOL!! 

I had a go at a centre step card, hope you likey..........
