Warmest Wishes Card in Circles with BBTB2

 Hello everyone.  I had a perfectly lovely weekend at the lake laughing and scrapping with friends.  Thank you to Sally & Beth for allowing us the privilege of your company and pleasure of scrapping "with the girls" at the lake! I am still recovering from the giggles!

I managed to finish 10 layout pages and seven cards, including this card for the weekly Bitten by the Bug 2 post.  Not my most prolific weekend, but for the most part I really like what I created.  I used some tools that I seldom use at home and that was fun.

The Bitten by the Bug 2 design team is taking a break from a weekly challenge and FOR THIS WEEK ONLY and is posting projects using CIRCLES to inspire you. 

I used this cute Close To My Heart stamp set, Perfect Fit - Holidays, to stamp my circles.  I used both circle borders as well as one sentiment and one winter bird.  I stamped the images on smooth white cardstock circles and matted them on scalloped circles.  I wrapped the card with CTMH red and white baker's twine instead of a ribbon.

Sometimes in scrapping we are all guilty of looking for the new fun shape, new technique. or the new Cricut cut when a simple shape like a circle can be so inspiring. Take a look at the Bitten by the Bug 2 blog this week for circle inspiration!

I will be back tomorrow with a new project to share... I have several projects planned for you this week!  Thanks for stopping by today and viewing my Circle card.
