The Paper Players #311 Challenge--Circles Around!

Hi All,

What a fabulous holiday weekend here in Northeast Ohio!  Sunshine abounds with mild temps, gentle breezes flowing, flowers still in bloom.  I don't remember a Labor Day weekend so intoxicating!

Family & friends were by yesterday for some burgers and dogs.  We played a few rounds of  30 (a dice game) which guaranteed a couple belly laughs!  It was great fun to spend some quality time with everyone before the seasonal holidays fast track upon us.

With the extra time this weekend I was able to create a few things. I've been hunkered down in my craft space for most of the morning today, something I rarely get to do.  I've been keeping a notebook of blogs I've been wanting to visit.  Today I stopped by The Paper Players blog to see what sketch challenge they had going on. This week is circles, circular cards, circle elements, anything to do with circles.  Here's my take on a circular card and a card with a circle.

  This is the top section of a telescoping card I made.  I don't remember who makes the circle paper but I thought it fitting for the challenge.  The flowers and button are from my stash.

This is the middle for my card.  It's an older SU stamp set, Sassy Suzie. She's so funny!  I've colored her with my very old SU markers from almost 12 years ago.  They still work very well but will be going to a new home soon.  I've replaced them with Spectrum Noir pens which I love, love, love!

Here she is in all her snarky glory!

I have a dear friend who's going through a rough spot right now.  I'm going to send this to her in the hopes she'll get a chuckle and forget her worries even if only for a few minutes.

Until later,
