Circle Card



Have had a peaceful night to myself, Daughter and Hubby are both out (Not together!)
I have been thinking about this card for a couple of days, I have never done a circle card, and although I have one of those circle cutter blades, I have only used it once! It actually cuts a decent circle - must use it more often.

The challenge on Sketch & Stash this week is a 'circle card' and I have made mine into an easel circle card, - had to try to be clever! I enjoyed this and it wasn't too difficult and it is different.

Creative Card Crew challenge this week is 'die cuts' and there are plenty on this card - Nestabilities large scallop circles, the flower and swirls are my new Marianne Creatables and the paper I have just downloaded from Summertime Designs, there are loads to choose from and all free!

This card also fits the Simon Says challenge, which was a picture of a 'Blue Lagoon' cocktail and the actual Lagoon which looks beautiful, the water is the most gorgeous shade of Blue/turquoise - blue papers.

The image is a swap from my craft buddy Diane, who like me loves the House Mouse stamps and this little mouse really does look relaxed! I have added some glitter to the blue water 'lagoon' that he is floating in. The sentiment is computer generated.

Thats it for now, hope its a good weekend!

Thanks for looking

Avril
