Welcome to Shape of the Week Sunday!
I decided to set a Die Cutting based challenge on my blog every week, as there does not seem to be many die cutting challenges about so i thought this may inspire people!!
So my challenge to you is to make a card using a die of a scalloped circle - there are tons out there and i think it is a popular die!!
This challenge gave me the kick up the bum I need on Bank Holiday Monday to make my Mum's birthday card:
Ingredients: Scalloped circle dies (large one is Nestabilities and small one under the button is a Cuttlebug die), October Afternoon papers, Cuttlebug butterfly die, home-made journalling spot (made in Photoshop), Cuttlebug letters dies, mini bulldog clip from Paperchase, button from stash, pen stitching.
After I finished the card on Monday we headed out to Morecambe for a walk along the prom and to make most of the unusually nice weather. It was also a good opportunity for me to practice my photography. Here's a shot I took when we walked down the Stone Jetty looking back towards the Midland Hotel:
Of course a trip to Morecambe wouldn't be complete for me without my favourite ice-cream treat, a Snowball Topper. Although this has featured on my blog before I still had to take a photo of the 2010 version!
While I was queueing for my ice cream I managed to get another shot of the fabulously retro Sunset Ices ice-cream van:
(The composition isn't brilliant on this one, but I was limited as I was in the queue!)
Thanks for looking,
