Friends Are Precious

Good morning.

I've been trying my best to battle a cold that has been hanging around for awhile. It's difficult to breathe and sleep because of the coughing but keeping busy tends to keep me from falling asleep during the day. Napping doesn't help me when I do want to sleep at night. It's been suggested that I go to a sleep clinic for my insomnia as I do suffer from it every few months...it's strange really. Any whoooo...I'm trying to get better.

Well I love Kristina Werner. I follow her on YouTube and her blog. She is a great inspiration for when I need to get so MOJO going for simple cards that are easy to put together in a hurry or for something different.

She made a card using the Martha Stewart Circle Cutter. I have the SU circle cutter and don't like it as much as I like the MS. Kristina is the reason I invested in the MS cutter, she made it look so easy..lol. She makes everything look easy. This is a 4.25 x 4.25 card and the top of the card with the half circle is the part I used with the MS circle cutter. She has a YouTube video on how to make the half circle for the top part of cards. I made two :) I loved how it looked so much I had to make another. The flowers on this one really stand out and just loved the look :)
Thanks for looking!!
