Getting Round To It :)x

That's what we want you to do over at Anyone For Anya this week peeps.

You can use circles, buttons, a round shaped card or anything at all and as long as your card contains something round, then that's fine.

Well it was a bit of a struggle for me cos I really don't do anything round (apart from my stomach lol xx), but I have to say that the DT girlies have done some FABULOUS work - absolutely gorgeous.

I used my Dahlia stamp (again) seeing as I love it so much. I coloured and highlighted her with the good old PMs and Glamour Dust combi.

You can get a fabulous range of TGF stamps as well as PMs from Tracy at Dies To Die For and there are lots of other yumster things that she is adding all the time, so nip over and check it all out if you get a sec.

So this is what I did.

I ordered some of these half circle cards from Paula at Which Craft a while ago and then forgot that I had them!!! But I thought they would be perfect for this challenge.

The papers are a mixture of K & Co and Wild Rose Studio (Spring CD which I 'heart' so much)

Ohhh check out his bloom.
And 'scuse the grainy pic :(

It arrived on my doorstep yesterday morning from the loveliness that is Tracy at Dies To Die For. I just had to use it cos it's so pretty.It's a Prima Country Elegance bloom and you can see them here.

The little black stick ons are Hero Arts and they were part of my prize from Simon Says Stamp.

No dodgy angle shot today!!
I thought I'd show you the back of the card.

Well to tell the truth, I couldn't get the picture to look right cos round cards don't do dodgy angles that well!!! If I wasn't such a lazy mare, I guess I could have done something with the back of the sticky up bit as well - doh!!!!!

And speaking of getting round to it, I have a day of it today!!

My craft stuff is slowly taking over the house, cos I have all the jewellery bits and bobs now as well. I'm really lucky that I have a nice big office at home, but the craft stuff outnumbers the work stuff by a mile!!

So I have decided to move my office upstairs into the spare bedroom. Not only will this leave the nice big downstairs office free to house all my stash - :))))xxx - but it will be far more secure.

Now this is a great idea on paper but Mary Poppins I aint, so someone has to manually move it all, and I'm guessing that it's me :( As Mr BT is coming on Tuesday to sort out the phone lines etc I have only today really to get it sorted. So that will keep me out of mischief for a good few hours.

Emma is organising dinner, bless her, so at least I won't have to worry about that. I hope she does loads of roasties cos no doubt I will be ravenous by the end of it.

Yup, the last diet didn't last very long. Maybe tomorrow I can start again. And just think, all the running up and down the stairs to the biscuit / chocolate tin and fridge once I move upstairs is bound to do me good lol xxx

I hope you have a restful and fab Sunday and see you soon.

Hugs xxx

This is a gorgeous card Dawny, isn't it lovely when you find something you forget you had (though more often than not in my case I know I've got something & can't find it lol).
