CASology 33 - Circle


Today's CASology Cue Card is Circle:




I LOVE circles - they're so perfectly round! You can use them to make anything. If we've had some cue cards that were challenging because I couldn't think of something, this one was challenging because I couldn't STOP thinking of things (see an additional card below!)

In the end, I decided to go with part-circles and show how they can be used too! I cut one large red circle in half for the smile and cut a little bit out of the two black eyes to make them look like they're smiling too!

Now it's your turn to make us smile - show us your circles and link them up by the deadline on Sunday at 4:00 CST.

Before you do, be sure to visit the other members of the Design Team for a circle of inspiration!



and this week's Guest Designer:  Kim Heggins



Here is another, more traditional circle card, for my mom's birthday, which is today:

I laughed out loud when I saw your first card! Very punny. Laughter turned to oohs for your mum's bd card. It's beautiful. Perfect color blue too. You have amazed me yet again! Bev

Leave it to you to think well outside the box! LOL! This makes me laugh every time I set my eyes on it! :) So very creative!!
Your mom's b'day card is gorgeous...it uses one of my favorite blues!

Erm....CUTE!! That card is so happy that it's made me happy! I think it's fabulous that cards have the power to make someone's day :)

Your second card is just fabulous too, and I have to admit, it's my favourite of the two ;) I LOVE that colour!

Can't help but chuckle at this, Ardyth, such a happy, fun card. Love your second one too, the colour is stunning and that font with the pearls is so Art Deco ... Happy Birthday to your Mum! Anita :)

Meghan said...

Ardyth, you definitely thought outside the circle! Love it!

Ardyth, what a fun card! Clever, clever, clever! Your mom's card is gorgeous, I adore that blue!

Geri said...

What's not to love about circles? They never end! The Mickey Mouse is beyond clever (I'm sure Mr. Disney is smiling down right now, nodding his head in agreement). The b-day card for your mom is simply beautiful. The pearls are the absolute perfect addition.

Hannelie said...

That smile certainly goes round and round!
And for the second card... totally awesome shade of blue...Congrats to your mum!

Kelly Griglione said...

Ardyth, where's your new half circle stamp (or stamps, I guess!) Again, so impressed with what you make out of the simple circle, plus the tiny sentiment is perfect here!

Gillian said...

Fabulous cards as always Ardyth!

Maureen Merritt said...

Your creativity astounds me each and every week! What a clever creation :) I love the traditional one too!

You are the queen of graphic! Both are fabulous - love the birthday card colors. Hope she had a great day.

Brilliant thinking and a great card again. Love your mum's card as well.
