Round and Round

I seem to spend my life wandering round in circles, I swear one day I will meet myself coming back the other way either that or I will eventually get some organisation into my life of semi chaos, but things always sort of work themselves out so why change, it all adds to the excitement of a probably otherwise boring life, go with the flow as they say.

Well as I'm always running around the challenge we have at Penny's this time is perfect for me. Sorry about all the bad puns, it just seemed a good idea at the time. Our challenge is circles, anyhow any way. If they aren't obvious you'll have to point them out but it could be dots to a full circle card or circle embellisments like buttons or pearls. Me, I sort of went a bit more abstract, though I did start off on the right lines with a circle card so I am sticking to the theme really. Then I added a full round bodied red wine and my teddy's full rounded tummy, the fab image is one we were given to play with by our fab sponser this time Diane from Di's digi's, boy has she got some great images pop over you'll be bowled over by the choice and if lucky enough to win well hop over to Penny's for all the details.

My card, as I said a fab image, I chose this one as it reminded me of my father in law who whenever we had a big family get together before he and mum in law moved to Tenerife to live would end up like this after several glasses of red wine. My sister in law has been know to be quite naughty and one christmas got permant marker and drew him a big curly moustache whilst he was zonked out on the sofa, worst part her mum let her do it and just sat there and laughed.

I made a circle base card and covered with some think it's kay and co papers not sure as I've lost the pad front, I just thought they looked a bit mediterraneany . The sentiment is a stamp I won in a recent candy and I'm sure there are many who spend their retirement relaxing will think this would definitely be a life well spent.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges-
Just scraps-round and red
Papercutz-critter on your project
