As March is another five Saturday month, we have the additional 
Lucky Dip Challenge.
It also means that we have a Guest Designer, which this month is 
The theme for your cards this week is 
You may interpret this as you wish, but we must be able to recognise the connection!
Jan is a faithful LIMette, submitting wonderful cards each week and leaving comments for many other participants.
Thank you for your dedication to our challenge Jan!
Here she has used circles as part of her Zentangling technique.
Do please visit her blog and leave a cheery comment!

Back from a fabulous holiday in Australia, with profuse apologies for my lack of commenting over the last few weeks, but accessing WiFi wasn't always easy!
At this point I would like to acknowledge the wonderful contribution given by Anne whilst I was away. She made sample cards for each challenge and was tireless in her commenting on submissions!
It is greatly appreciated by me and also I'm sure by all the people whose blogs she visited!
A simple card from a couple of dies purchased from Simon Says Stamp!
With intricate dies like these, I add some double sided tape to the back of the card before running it through my Cuttlebug. Then all I have to do once the card is die-cut, is to peel and press!
I love to add frames to highlight images. Here I used a circular Nestie to cut this frame for an emboss resist Stampin' Up image. The sentiment is also from SU!
There are a few more cards on my personal blog!


firstly, I'm sorry I never managed a card last week due to one thing or another.  hope this week goes to plan.
This weeks card uses fabulous stamps from Clearly Besotted as well as one of the new word dies. I have used shadow inks for the circles and they give a lovely finish.

Thank you so much all those people who left comments for fellow participants last week, it would be great if you could do it again this time, even though it's not part of the challenge... it's just a lovely thing to do for others!
So... let's see what round and round means to you!
