Ellephantastic is very honored to sponsor this challenge.
Hi I am Helen. I suffer with CFS/ME & found a few years ago I could no longer work due to my illness.
To give myself something to do (when feeling well) I decided to go back to my roots....crafting!!
I grew up drawing, knitting & 'Cutting & Sticking'
Now I like to do all kinds of paper crafting, card making, altered art, knitting & sewing.
I also design & draw my own digital art.
My fun hobby has unintentionally grown into a li'l crafty business for me which I am loving.
There is nothing I like better than to put a smile on someone's face because of my crafting :0)
You can order & buy a lot of my work from my shop. You can also now buy some crafting products.
Here are the Team's projects:
This challenge ends on March 13th! And the
winner will be announced the 14th along with the next challenge!

The newest and greatest invention... CIRCLES!!!! And colorful too!

Scroll down for current challenge or click HERE!

The long winter days are over for us here but it's still cold! We haven't had much snow, but they say we might have a big one tonight!! Anyone have any free snow?! :D

At our local art store, my dad and I bought two stretched canvases and some Tombo Mono adhesive. I'm hoping  to try out painting but don't be expecting a masterpiece!! Just something fun to do but I haven't even decided what to paint yet but I'll keep you updated on that!

So, as you all probably must be waiting for, a card!!!

Mainly, the circles in the background took the most time on this card! I have these templates for different sizes of circles and colored them in! Stuck a DP on there and later, lots of time thinking. I adhered the DP on and I couldn't think of a sentiment! I was thinking of some small, white letter stickers to spell out something but I didn't have any so... I trimmed off a piece of CD and it look good. I wrote a simple "hello" and colored it. Cut a little triangle off to get a 'banner' look and adhered it on. I watched a video that said that clustering your embellishments would give them more potential so I tried it out! I think it looks pretty good! What do you all think?

Also, added some circles inside with the card but forgot to get a pic of it. I'm also hoping to get a stamp that says "Handmade by Iris" so I can stamp it on the back of all my cards! Any of you out there have any preference for a good, solid ink?
That's all I've got to share today! Have a fabulous one!

p.s. This card goes with ths challenge:
