Round in circles

The theme for our Lucky Dip Week at Less is More this week is
 Round and Round.
I feel as though that's a bit how I feel at the moment... going round in circles since returning from my fabulous holiday in Australia. I'm gradually getting back to UK time, but visiting grandchildren and other things meant that I completely forgot to write my post on this my personal blog for this week.
Any way here are my cards!
First of all is a circular card employing a little dyed embossing paste and a home made stencil, plus a few die cuts using vellum.
The name was made and cut on my Silhouette.
This is simply  die-cuts . The circles were from one die, which I cut into two pieces and added either side of the horizontal band.
Here a circle was used to frame an emboss resist stamp from Stampin Up!
Now we're off out with our grandchildren on a 'Mystery'.  I wonder where we'll end up? They love these trips...we used to do it with our own kids when they were young and they loved it too! There are some terrific places to visit!
