The new challenge starts today at Try It On Tuesday and this time the theme is Going round in Circles, the design team have some brilliant samples over on the challenge blog so I hope you will visit them. My sample is nothing like I intended making but having left it to last minute as usual I couldn't find the stamp I wanted to use ,most annoying!. So I have made a journal page using a distress oxide background and various stamps , there are lots of circles on there but quite hard to see on here, The man on the bike and the clocks are some very old stamps , I think they came from The Stamp Man but not sure.
I've not been crafting for a few weeks now, had a bad fall, small fracture in bone in knee and very painful torn ligaments in the back of my knee, other than issuing me with a Zimmer frame NHS didn't seem to be able to offer any other help. Anyhow I do need a few cards for later this month and after seeing one made by a blog buddy I have naughtily cased her card, hope she will forgive me.I have used different colours and changed the layout a bit. I used some brads to attach the bits and pieces, seem to have an awful lot of them and hardly ever use them nowadays, I think we all stopped using "bumpy" embellishments when the postage went up for thicker cards !
