Shape Up @ MAWTT

Good Morning folks its time for a brand new challenge at
and this week the lovely LEESA is in charge and she would like us all to
Shape Up!
Well I certainly need to but fortunately for now its just my card that has to!!
This is a commissioned card I made a while ago. After seeing the twins card I made for Jake (yes his Mum won the name game) and Ella, I was asked to make another twin card, this time for two boys and as I love that image I used last time so much I went with it again.
This time I cut my card shape using X Cut dies and embellished the whole thing (last time you may remember I left it CAS). I have to say I'm happy with both even though they are so different! The papers are DCWV and the 'precious' is from WRMK its a kind of chipboard sticker  but its a bit thicker. All my flowers are from WOC and my nylon butterfly is from a £1 shop. I added a little button shaped like a dummy in with the flowers, you can just see it poking out the bottom corner.

We have my favourite shop in the whole of blogland sponsoring us today

and the lovely Janice has donated this prize to the winner
Some lovely Christmas goodies.

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details and some fabulous shapes from the gorgeous DT girls. This challenge will run for a fortnight to give everyone plenty of time during the school holidays.

This is the last of the cards that I had pre made before I got busy at work so I'm not sure what will happen now! It's really hot here and that means busy busy for us but I hope I can find a little time from somewhere during the last 3 weeks of our season!!

Thank you to everyone for sticking by me while I have been unable to visit you all, I can't wait to catch up with all my blog friends soon.

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
