CHNC challenge 15: going round in circles

Thank you for the fab entries for challenge 14 - so much variety of foliage and flowers - I enjoyed seeing them all. Unfortunately, there could only be one winner for the Robyn's Fetish images and this is the result:
Number 17 is Elizabeth

This is Elizabeth's lovely card:

Please email me, Elizabeth, so that I can let you know how to claim your prize - either 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 paper pack kindly given by Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More, the sponsors of my challenge 14.

Challenge 15: going round in circles

Now on to challenge 15: going round in circles. I'd like to see at least one circle - it might be the shape of your card, but it doesn't have to be - you can use paper with circles on it, die cut circles, dots or spots ... or even buttons or brads - as long as you use something round it will count.

We are actually having a break away atm, so I quickly prepared two cards for this challenge before we left home (and I have my little lappy with me and hotel internet connection) - time was running out so I needed to produce something quickly so I used Cricut wild card cartridge doiley card with some K & Co Christmas double sided papers (these were some of those that were sent to me by the lovely girls at the Order of the Opus Gluei. Just the addition of a central image and the cards were done.

So here are my two quick cards (more details here on my regular crafting blog):

As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week please remember to include at least one circle - apart from that, anything goes.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge - please add a link to your blog post (not your blog, but the actual post where your card can be found) by 22:00 UK time Friday 15 April. Please mention my blog and create a link within the post for your creation.

You can enter as many times as you wish (a good way to build up your stock of Christmas cards) and also link to any other challenges that allow you to do so, but new work only, please.

A new challenge will be set on 16 April.

Please add your link to inlinkz. If by any chance it disappears, please leave a comment with the link to your blog post and I will make sure it is added.

If you haven't done so already, please become a follower and grab my bright pink button to post on your sidebar and help continue to spread the word about this new challenge blog - thank you.

I look forward to seeing your creations.
