OLW 78 Circles !!

Hello my crafting friends, I hope it warms up soon, I'm a bit of a chilly mortal at the best of times:{ Lately I've been cold, cold, cold :{ Never mind the seasons come and go and soon it will be spring:0)
In the meantime over at Simplicity Susan has challenged us to come up with a one layer card with at least 5 circles on it,




OLW78 Rules

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single sheet of card stock folded in half. No other layers of card stock allowed!

2. Use at least FIVE circles on your card. If you feel so inclined, one of them can be the card base itself, but do NOT use punched or die cut circles!


3. Upload your card somewhere on the internet and link back to it here via the InLinkz button on the sidebar.


4. The most important rule of all is to HAVE FUN!
!!

I used a Crafters Workshop template, Mini Circle Explosion and Red Barn and Forest Berries DI inks. A stamp by Docrafts,
Just a little aside over on the Craft Barn we are running a Journal challenge this month  'Feb' it's all about hearts, we'd love to see a page with your hearts filled with things that you love, check it out HERE
There is a prize too :0)

I've been thinking about dropping my 'mustavcoffee' tag, not sure I need it anymore. What do you think? I'd love to know, if you have a minute :0) Thanks for dropping in, Gay x

Great OLW circles card . . . def more than 5 there!

Up to you about your Mustavcoffee bit . . . everyone knows your real name now . . . so I don't suppose the Mustavcoffee bit matters so much now?

Have a great weekend. Stay warm xxx

Wonderful OLW card Gay. I like Mustavcoffee. It`s a name I wish I`d thought of because of my coffee addiction (obviously).

Love the way the dots fade away Gay, lovely card. You could just be Crafty Musings but as Sandra said everyone knows who you are:)) perhaps you could trade up to a glass of wine!!!

Love this Gay, what a great idea and so effective.

As for your "monica" at the end of the day, it's YOU! no matter what you choose.

Annette said...

So simple, yet so effective. I love it.

Darnell J Knauss said...

Great card, Gay. I love that the sentiment is so right on "dotty!" I like that your name is unique, but if you're feeling the need for a change, go for it!

Linda R said...

What a great card. I was just imagining myself trying to make this card and I could see me redoing it 100 times trying to get those dots right.. Great job my friend.. You know I love your name. Cause I love my coffee... But I would stop by and visit you no matter what your name was.. You are the sweetest...

Hugs, Linda

Cheryl said...
