SDC189: Unusually Shaped Card

Today we welcome our April guest designer who has been playing along in our challenges for quite awhile, Kassa Hayselden.  Here's a little bit about Kassa:

Hi there lovely friends....

My name is Kassa (Karen Hayselden) - eeek! so excited to be here!

I'm from a glorious part of England - Yorkshire
I live there with my hubby, beautiful daughter and my furry Ruby the Leonberger often likes to get involved with 'our' art, tis her big nose, its often covered with gesso, paints and glitters!

When it comes to art, I'll give anything a go but my real love is mixed media filled with tiny detail....details that take me into my own little world and imagination - a happy place to be.....creating 'happy' art......

A few years ago I started my Stampotique 'addiction' with a  collection of Daniel Torrente and Janet Klein's beauties and now, well...I just can't stop.....heeheehee (don't want to either- keep them coming Stampotique :-)))

And how lucky am I - I only live 15 minutes away from a major stockist of Stampotique stamps - Art from the Heart - and how exciting I'm teaching regular monthly workshops there - the workshops are called 'Stampotique Boutique' can you guess what we get up to............we'll be up to our elbows in Stampotique - YeY!!!!

To go peep at my blog here's the link -

Mwah Kassa xoxo

and now onto our first challenge of April:
