Going Around In Circles

You ever feel like you're going around in circles? Well I sure did making this card!
This week's challenge at Mo's DP2 is:
A Circle Card
shhhh this is my very first circle card. (and probably my last too, but I might surprise myself. lol)
I don't have grand nesties so this card was made with the normal circle and circle scalloped nesties. So its fairly small which spooked me a bit but I needn't have worried much about that as Mo has a series of  digis that work perfect for itty bitty cards. This one is called Fat Cat. She also has one for dog lovers called "Bronte Bits" and another of Bears called "Beary Busy" They're all real cute!
Ive done my usual and colored this on kraft with Lyras and Prismacolors.




And this week at the Catered Crop we are looking for your
Ric Rac
I just loooove ric rac! Trouble is I don't have much of it so I've  been rationing it out. :) 
But this is such a small card I figured I could spare a piece. :)

So there ya go! Two fun challenges for you to get a handle on! Maybe you can combine them and get to enter both that would be fun!
I'll see you around the WWW.

Adorable, and it's always handy to have a few tiny notecards isn't it. I've a circle card cut out, so will make an effort and make it up for the challenge. Will use the cute elephant digi. OK, that's a plan then lol. Hugs lin

Can't believe this is your first circle card Dorcas!!
It is gorgeous, you should deffinatly do more of them, or pop the finished circle on the front of a card so it stays "Safe"! Ha.

Love that "Fat" cat... Did you use one of yours for inspiration. I bet it's bigger than my dog...lol and I don't have any Big Circle Nesties either, that's why I reached for my Cricut.
