Going round in circles!

Oh my goodness! I have just spent the last 20 minutes trying to leave a comment on the Creative Cottage Blog!! Goodness knows what my computer is up to at the moment, and I don't know how many times I submitted my comment....sorry Tracy!! I was literally going round in circles! This is rather fitting really considering the theme for this week's challenge at Creative Cottage is circles!!! Ha, ha!

The lovely ladies would like to see projects that include circles and the DT have come up with some wonderful creations....you should really go and take a peek! While there you should also hop over to their main blog to see the new kit they've just released...its so cute....it features baby Ellie and family.

Here is my card for the challenge:

I've used a pre-cut flower shaped card, along with a selection of papers from the Creative Cottage, a pink pencil, a pink sticky gem and some pink glitter glue....I should have entered this in a pink challenge really!!

I started by colouring the edges of the card in pencil, I then cut out some pink patterned paper in the shape of the flower and attached it. Next I punched five circles out of another piece of patterned paper (which features more circles!) and stuck them in place before adding my flower centre. I used a sticky pink gem in the middle and dotted the glitter glue around the petals for added sparkle.

I learnt something new today.....I've always wondered what colour bra is best to wear under a white top...black and white bras both seem to show through the top! This morning I tried a grey bra (I bought it grey honest, it wasn't a washing accident!) under my white top and I was amazed that this was perfect! Nothing showed through at all!! Thats my top tip for the day!

I'd also like to recomend something that I've recently discovered...although if you like them as much as I do you might not forgive me for the recomendation.....Cadburys caramel buttons are gorgeous!! Like giant chocolate buttons, but with some gooey caramel in them too!! You might have to give the packet to someone else to look after though as they are very moreish...or maybe thats just me!!

Right, I'd better get going...I'm cooking dinner for my sister and her hubbie tonight....then Lorna and I are going to make cakes! Yummy!

Thanks for stopping by today.
