Over at the Shopping Our Stash blog their latest and greatest challenge is called Bent Out of Shape. They are asking that you make a shaped card. Well, a rectangle is a shape but I know that isn't what they mean.
A zillion or so years ago a stamping friend sent me a card in the shape of a doghouse. I immediately traced it so I could duplicate it, which was probably highly illegal and I should be lounging in prison now getting three hots and cot (and cable TV) for free. I say that because she included a flyer about the company whose template it was and they suggested it could also be a birdhouse. I don't remember the company otherwise I would give them credit now, although a quick Google search shows dog house templates a'plenty. If you open the house all the way up, this is what it looks like.
The Fine Print: Dog stamp by DOTS, greeting stamp by Hero Arts, designer paper by DCWV (both the roof and the cut out flower and hydrant), bone punch by unknown, and of course, that contraband dog house template.
