Good Morning, everyone! Hope you're all feeling bright and breezy at the beginning of a new week!

Just hopping in to catch the SSS Monday Going Round in Circles challenge, which ends at 1pm (GMT) today.

I made a quick card using circles as lollipop flowers, embossing with white powder, then adding colour with Prisma pencils and Promarkers. This wasn't my intention - I had intended smooshing or spraying lots of colour over these, but it just sort of happened. I'll still try it that way but here's what emerged from yesterday's playtime.

I also made a very quick card for the Alphabet Challenge's CAS theme...
I've been playing with Neocolors a lot, lately, and that's how I made this. I coloured the flower stamps with Neocolours, spritzed with water, then stamped onto watercolour card, managing to catch a little of the colour with clear embossing powder, to add a little more definition. It's very delicate, so hard to get a good image but I love the way it turned out.

Thank you so much for calling in today

I'll be back tomorrow, with a new challenge for Try it on Tuesday

Monday morning flowers (for me) are always cheery. I like those in the top flower. I think I have some fun circles similar to those. Clever use to turn them into flowers. I like it! Back to work for me and finally we have a bit of sun,until the cloud comes back, but I would love to be out in the gardens getting them ready for more flowers. Happy Monday Cth. Hugs-Erika
