Your Favourite Card Shape or Fold (& why).

As You Like It Challenge

Goodness me even Febuary is speeding past fast!

I have been super busy!
Do you remember last week I showed you now far I got with
the crochet sleep bag I was making for my New Great Nephew
so you remember I had to unpicked the one I started because I made a mistake... this is where I was up to...

sooooooo I am finished and I am super happy with it!
Here's some of the photos

This is the back

So happy no mistakes

and here it is finished a labour of love but I LOVE it and I hope my Niece will love it too!

So then to My card for the As you Like it Challenge
The sponsor of this challenge is
Sweet Stamp Store

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Card Shape or Fold (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Well I have to say it's a no brainer for me I love square but if I have to choose something else
it has to be a circle! 
 If it's not square then the shape I would always go for first is round,
why? I love that I can interlock other circles into it and its quick and easy to die cut.
and to stop it from rolling away I just snip a slither off the bottom.

for my card I am joining a few challenges:
