Going Round In Circles

Hi chicksies and for once I’m not talking about me – although now you come to mention it …….

But anyhoos it’s Friday, the best day of the week, woohooooo :) The weekend is almost here and time to head on over to the Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge and check out what’s going on there. As its the first one of the month. it’s our special challenge so it’s an

Anything Goes

week with of course an optional extra. And this week our Jacqui is our hostess with the most-est (and she is indeed) and she has set the option as circles so you just need to add something round to your work –  simples!!!

We are sponsored by the marvellous peeps over the water …


…. and of course there is a yummy voucher for one lucky girlie to spend in the shop.

So this is what I did – a round card to fit the optional extra plus some spotty DP as well lurking furtively  in the background plus a round button embellie on the bloom – more in secondo :)

I went for a little hAnglar girl this week and this one is from the Attitude kit which you can see here.

I used the Copics/ polywollydoodah combi and these are the colours -

E000, E00, E21, R11, R20 (skin), E41, E42, E50 (hair), C5, E000, E50, R85, RV0000, RV000. RV00 (the rest)

Once again I used a couple of Nitwits papers (there’s a sale on at the mo so check it out me luvvies xxx) and I even paper pieced her frock!! This was because I am running low on inks and I’m praying that the refills arrive today – note to me to not leave it until the last minute next time!!!

The card base was made using my new best friend, the Grand Calibur and some circle and scalloped circle dies (this machine embosses like nobodies business).

Now I have to tell you that I did something here for the first time.

No, not made a mistake cos that’s never gonna happen is it  - well at least I’m honest lol!! No, I decided that instead of using paper, I’d make the bloom from felt (I am working on some stuff at the mo which sort of inspired me), and I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

I used some Autumn Sunset Wool Felt bits which are from The Ribbon Girl and the die set I used is Marianne Design Creatables - Flower and Leaves which you can get from Tracy at Dies To Die For.

Did you notice that just for a change I added a swirl from the Magnolia leaf and swirl set and got the old Tilda Lace Die out again?

So that’s me card done and I’ll say toodle pip and go and do some work – boooo hisssss.

Enjoy your day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
