OLW: Circular Thanks

When I saw that this week's OLW challenge was circles, I freaked out. Because I couldn't figure out if I had any circular images and how to use more than 5 on a ONE LAYER card. I was racking my brain, people! And then, I finished reading Susan's post. And realized that polka dots are circles. And felt stupid. I should say that I have bronchitis this weekend, and that's what was interfering with my brain waves. But I'm sure it would've been the same without being sick...

BUT, it was okay! Because I got to use one of my favorite images--and make these five really quick and super easy cards! And I added rhinestones--my favorites (and also circular--duh)! Thank you, Susan, for showing me the light yet again! ;)

These look better IRL. I don't know why, but I've been having issues lately photographing my white cards again! I was doing well...maybe I need to replace the light blub.

ANYWAY, I LOVE making a bunch of the same card with variations on color--seriously. If you don't believe me, check here and here. And here. Yeah. There are more, but I won't bore you with them! And OLW always brings it out of me! ;) I'm thinking I'll do this same card on colored cardstock panels, too, with black rhinestones. We'll see...I hope you'll come and join in the fun--it's so neat to see what everyone creates! Happy CASing! ;)

Mynnette, this is a clever use of circles. I love your CAS cards with this image. It looks great in all colours. I like the thought of using that image on coloured cardstock too.

Hey has anyone asked about the response time of your blog page? It's been really slow for me lately. Just wondering :)

Love this set of cards Mynnette! I am saving this post for inspiration. I might even be able to make a set of these in less than 1 day!

Love your little owl with the hearts, where did you get it?
