Round, like a circle in a spiral... like a wheel within a wheel...

Hi Girls

Bet you'll all be singing that today now... at least those of you old enough to remember the song...  it's funny how a tune gets in your head and won't go... no matter how you try!

Today the challenge at Totally Gorjuss is Anything Goes plus Circles... time to dig out my new stitched circle dies from Li'l Inkers I thought!  I used a little freebie image from Whimsie Doodles (just go to their website and click on the freebies sections... some fabulous images there)  then I wrote the sentiment by hand.. The other dies used are Li'l Inkers too...  stitched squares...  and a stitched sentiment flag die.    I just used a small Martha Stewart Flower punch and a glittery brad to finish.  Hope you like this different take on a circle.. even though it's an 'off the edge' one!

So glad we have the sun (for a few days at least).... though for the tennis followers that have to look at the sun through the window... it's difficult!  I must admit although I'm not a sports fan, I have watched Murray's progress...  and wish him luck on Sunday.

Have a good weekend all.. hope wherever you are, you enjoy some outside time...  for us.... it's gardening today!

Big hugs
