Circle Cards

I made these cards using my circle nesties. They open at the top of the card. They are quick and easy to make, as well as being fun!
I first cut out the folded circle (scallop) then cut out another scallop circle the same size. I glued this circle to the folded circle card. Then I stamped in the middle of the card & coloured it in. I cut out the plain circle then cut out the center of the card so the stamped image shows through. This plain circle is stuck to the card using sponge tape to give it some height. It SOUNDS complicated, but honestly, it isn't! Believe me, I don't like making complicated cards, I prefer "easy-peasy", it keeps my sanity intact!! The last thing I did was to add the embellishments.
Ok that's it from me for tonight! Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting! {{HUGS}} from me to YOU:-)

Some New Cards

Here are a few cards, and a tile, I made recently.
The tile was 'rescued' from the rubbish from a local building site down the road. I saw a boxful of white ceramic tiles, various sizes & shapes, and just knew I had to to have them! Wow, were they HEAVY!! I carried three tiles the first day, then went back the next morning with my trusty shopping trolly to get the rest. Even then it was really hard to push the trolley! The total weight was around 25 kgs! Anyway, I now have about 18 white ceramic tiles that I am going to decorate. This one is a beach scene, as you can see. Can you see the little mouse on there?!
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
