Mojo Monday Sketch/Mojo226-Soar. Dream. PURGE HOP WINNERS

Good morning, happy mojo Monday to ya!  Be sure to check out the list of Purge Hop winners at the end of my post.  Some of my friends are at CHA so the list is not complete.  I will be updating my list as soon as I know all the winners.  It is time for this weeks Mojo Sketch, I have chosen a circle card for this weeks round or square choice.  The circle cards are so darling, I am also listing instructions for those who may have missed it.  There are several ways you can make your circle card, I like mine to look like a complete circle when I am finished, I use option 1.  I have used SU new designer papers and the new stamps and dies from Verve's last release,  You can check out those here.   I used a doily, bakers twine, and the new SU ruffled ribbon.  I have gotten so many wonderful quotes/sayings from Pinterest.  I have books and books of quotes/sayings from years and years ago; now I have my visual pin board...luv that!  I want to share this quote with you today, it is from this blog.....  "Stand for what is right.  Even if it means standing alone."   Have a great Monday...enjoy!

Circle Card Instructions
I have been asked how I make my circle cards, so I am going to list quick instructions. I am listing two different options, the first option is so your card is a complete circle.  The second option is not a complete circle but you do not have to clue two piece together.

-cut card stock using the largest circle or scalloped circle nesting label
-score one of the circles on Scor Pal on the first mark(1/2 inch mark) this will be the back part of the card
-decorate the top circle
-put glue on the part above the scored part of the bottom circle and adhere the decorated circle to the bottom
-be sure to line up as much as possible so that your card when free standing is straight

-run a piece of folded card stock through the cuttlebug with a small part exposed above the nesting label
-this option makes it so you do not have to glue, it is held together by the piece that is not cut.  I hope this helps, if you need anything else please let me know.
