A Special Gift....CES DT

Morning

Long weekend yippee, oh that extra day makes all the difference doesn't it.  I need to have a sort out today but hubby is off on a 'ride out' on the bike tomorrow so that gives me lots of crafty time!!  Have no plans yet for Monday wait and see what the weather does first.

So today over at CES our lovely Carrie has chosen the theme of SHAPE IT UP!  Have to be honest always makes me sigh coz I love my square cards but I do need to try different shapes.  I saw this kick stand card tutorial over on the LOTV ideas to inspire blog that Bev did and thought, yep that's the one for me coz it's still quite square LOL!  I really like it and you can use all sorts of shapes for the stand!  Only thing is that I found it a bit of a nightmare to photo to get a good angel to show the stand but never mind I am sure you get the idea!

I have used a gorgeous LOTV image teamed with some fab BG papers....
