Circles and Polka Dots with All Round Fun with the HM & F Monday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

I am back with some more of my favourite critters

and just have to say I spent a good three hours in the garden with Matt and we cut, strimmed and took down two trees, fabulous day and it looks oh so much tidier now :)

any way enough of that

Today sees the next challenge at the

Circles and Polka Dots - All Round Fun

We have two fabulous Sponsors for this challenge:

One winner will get a $25 gift certificate from House-Mouse Designs

wow some fabulous prizes

Here is my design team inspirational piece however please do hop over to see the rest of the teams wonderful creations

I made another 8 x 8 inch Birthday card, this one is for my own family.  The base layer is a pale blue and the papers are from Grimsby Crafts, I have used the grand nestie circles and circle scallops to make the big circles, one of which is using a polka dot blue paper :)  Then to match the All round fun bit, I used this fabulous House Mouse image of my little critters making a round jigsaw puzzle.

Here is a close up of the all important House Mouse Image, called "Piece Corps" available here at House Mouse Designs and it has been coloured in with copics.  

I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

Hi Kate - I absolutely love this card and what a brilliant layout......if you were trying to explain it you wouldn't think it worked but it certainly does and reflects the "round" puzzle. Thanks so much for giving me the heads up about the Secret Saturday challenge (just been over and linked up). Also just received another order of ATYOU Spica pens (including TWO clear ones!!! lol). Sounds like you've been having a busy time in the garden today - well done.
