Going Round in Circles

.......is what I did last week for the LIM challenge of Legs. I did try, honestly Chrissie and Mandi but several efforts got lobbed across the room in disgust and eventually I thought I'd give my creative bent (not!) a rest for a week as it obviously wasn't coming naturally!

This week the theme is.......
Please note that this is in the plural... we need to see more than one circle

.....and I'm much happier with my creation, but what do you think?



The main image was a freebie with Craft Stamper and I stamped her in Imperial Purple Versafine then masked her with a Post-It. Then I applied Old Paper D.I. with Cut n Dry through a stencil cut with my largest circular nestie, and some sequin waste. The sentiment is a new one which I bought at Newbury a fortnight ago and is by Kaiser Craft. I chomped off a couple of corners to give it a 'contemporary' feel.

I have 10 days off work now... Yippee, but am having a new boiler installed this week so the house will be in chaos. It may be some time before I'm back in my craft room.

Until then, t
hank you for looking and for any comments you are kind enough to leave.

  10. Absolutely stunning card Fiona and love the circle making idea.
    Good luck with the boiler and all I can say is at least it's a bit warmer than when we had ours done (first week of December 2009 when the weather suddenly turned REALLY cold - brrrh!)
