Going Round in Circles

Going around in circles is kinda the way things are for me just at the moment!  This week the Cute Card Thursday challenge is sponsored by Rick St Dennis - do stop by the blog to read all about it and see what the rest of the DT have made.

I've been backwards and forwards to the doctor for blood tests, asthma checks etc so, along with the garden project and looking after Mum, I've not had much time to craft.  I was browsing Pinterest a while back and knowing that this challenge theme was coming up I took note of a card originally posted on the AnMaCreatif blog last year - see it here - and sort of copied it .. .. my layout is slightly different as are my papers and I've added the pearls.  It was reasonably quick and easy to do, die cut out the different pieces, ink the edges with green chalk ink for a touch of shabby, then stick it all together!  I've used Marianne Design papers from the Beautiful Butterflies pad PK9089, and the owl die set COL1302 plus the hearts from the bird set COL1301 and the little pearl heart embellishment on the top of the hearts is also by MD.

The Sketch 'n' Dies blog challenge is anything goes with die cuts so I'll enter my thank you owl with them.  The Fussy and Fancy Friday theme has been anything with wings - hope I'm in time to join them again espcially as I was in the top 5 last time!  And, the Incy Wincy challenge and Crafty Creations also want to see things with wings so I can enter with them too.

Sorry I've not been around to blogs this week, I will try and catch up over the weekend .. .. life sometimes throws a spanner or two in the works and you end up going round in circles!
