It's that time again! Yay! Dust off your circle cutter, or grab a tumbler to trace, pull out your circle embellies, ink up that circle stamp...
make some cards using *circles* as the focus of your card front!
using some of my fave things : DCWV glittered CS ( 3 cols ) , SEI Kaboom buttons , Love Elsie Roxie collection ribbons , CI chipboard , Bazzill CS
Make a card containing my favorite things:
Buttons - I used folk hearts
Polka-dots - DCWV Nana's kids embossed polka dot cs
ribbon - polka dotted pink
chipboard - could wait to try out these lovely MM shimmer hearts ( better than doing it myself - putting on the glitter that is ! )
a heart - lots of them ! lol
Anything extra that you add is fine, but the card must contain these 5 items.
2. The theme of the card is FRIENDS! Pretty broad, but should be fun, huh? - mine was DCWV CS cut up to make the word Friends

What does MY mean to you ?
Embossing.Dry embossing with a light box or with a die cutting machine.Using embossing powders or triple embossing.Using pre-embossed papers.Embossing with found items.Just have fun playing!And as I can't resist being a little (em)bossy - why not see if you can get more than one emboss technique on your card?
Embossed & glittered pattern paper is DCWV's Nana's kids

also based on sketch no 6 I found on this great new sketch site !
"how's about a dare where you can't use any adhesives at all...
You have to put them away...
No tape, no gluesticks, no Xyron, no modpodge.... and all other sticky things....
the only things you can use are things like staples, stitching, brads, eyelets, pins.... that sort of thing to attach all the bits to your card."
