No Square or Rectangle shaped cards theme for MTTC blog

Poinsettia shaped card then from me! I took a pattern and altered the placement and orientation just a bit and extended the width a bit on a few across the top to have some stability for the top fold.

MTTC's new challenge for Friday, November 1, 2019 is to have no square or rectangle cards!!! What a challenge!!!

Here's my poinsettia-shaped Christmas card:

Oh what a crazy bunch of weather days we are having in the USA heartland!!! In my part of north central Illinois, I had several inches of snow today, October 31st!!!! This is crazy!!! (Did I say crazy yet??? Wacky-doodle!!!!)

However there are some brave parents and kiddos that are out trick-or-treating in our small community! I'm typing this draft of the post at 7 pm and we've had between 20-25 visitors! Last year, we had 45 total.

No matter where you are in the world, stay safe and do something creative before the day is over.
