Default TLC418 ~ Gotta Love Circles!! ~ (2/25/13)

Hello everyone....hope you had a wonderful weekend!!! I didn't do anything exciting this weekend but I did get a little stamping time...yeaaaa!!!


It's my turn to host this week's TLC and boy, do I have a fun challenge!!! Don't you just love circles??? They add so much fun and interest to a design....a circle can be used as a sun or a flower, as a background design element, you can even stack them for a melted snowman or line them up to create a caterpillar...the sky is the limit!!! Soooo, my challenge is to use punched, diecut, or hand cut circles on your design project!!!



My card sample


Oh Snap!!


Remember when uploading to use keyword TLC418 (no spaces)

You can view the entire TLC418 Gallery here!!


Happy Stamping!!!

Heart TLC418 Hug Monkey

Joan- great challenge! I love circles, and used my Marvy 2" scalloped circle punch for the background for my monkey who so wants a hug! Added some red gems, and a ribbon. Here's Hug Monkey

I thought I had found the perfect piece of dsp for this challenge sitting on top of my box of scraps, but it actually proved to be a little challenge to find some sort of image that would go with this retired (old) dsp and still look good. Snowflakes to the rescue! They did the trick. Here's my Circles of Christmas
