You are Appreciated

Hi all!

It's Thursday again, only a couple more days and it's the weekend again! I have to admit I am looking forward to it, it has been so crazy busy and I have been suffering a little bit from the jet lag earlier in the week. I'm looking forward to a nice long lie-in :) Going to see Eddie Izzard on Monday didn't help things either, as we were home by 1 and I had to get up again at 6. He was really funny though, as was his warm-up act :)

Thursday means a Delightful Challenge, themed "I APPRECIATE YOU" this time. I made a lovely Mother's Day card. I used my new circle cutter here; it was just such a doddle to make the perfect circle. Expect a lot more circles on my future projects ;)
