Hip 2 Be Square

Lost Coast Designs have a new fun challenge where it's all about the squares. Here's mine

This was a box full of little wooden shapes, so I started by giving it a bit of colour.

I used a border stamp around the outside.

Then did a bit of shabby stamping with the hat stamps on the top and around the insides.

Time to choose and stamp some of my favourites, then Off With Their Heads!
And there it is, a nice shabby box for smug kitty and co.
It doesn't show in the photograph, but it was pounding with rain when I took this. In fact it still is!

I'm also entering this into the SSS Wednesday challenge which is also Hip To Be Square, so how good is that! 

I hope you have a fun weekend, and thanks very much for looking x
