Greetings friends.  Well, today is the last day of the new release blog hop.  I hope you have been inspired by the new stamps!

For the last day, I wanted to show you another background stamp.  This time it was Abstract Circles CC335:

Both cards were very simple in that I stamped the circle background with Versamark ink and then sponged them with various colors of PanPastel chalk.  Easy!  I used the background in both cards as a means to highlight two of my favorite sayings from the new release.

Items for Card 1:


I chose a closeup of card 2 so that you could actually read the saying.  

Items for Card 2:
Life Rules E19871

Thank you very much for stopping by this week and for leaving such nice comments.  I appreciate you all.

wOw, you showcased Abstract Circles wonderfully. I love the way you showed in color split with tan. It gives a fun look to a background stamp that I wouldn't normally pick. Now seeing it is to want it!
