St Anthony

Where are you? I have spent 2 precious hours that should have been used playing looking for my flipping memory stick. It has vanished (just not toiletways I hope - she is just obssessed with it at the moment!) - I remember picking it up one day and then total blank, I think must have it put it away "somewhere safe" and a decade could pass before I recover it. I had only just put all my papercraft files, templates, pink petticoat etc onto it as my poor computer has been suffering from failing memory - it is desperate need of more RAM and obviously so am I.
Juat giving up.... I made these circle cards yesterday. One is for my aunt's birthday - I was just going send one I'd premade but ended doing this from scratch and liked it so much I made another, just for the heck of it. The circles are cut with the X Cut shape cutter - it is one fab bit of kit. My heart sank when I first saw it in my box of goodies - I had a fiskar's one a couple of years ago and never managed to cut a shape properly, so it languished for months until I was forced to try it before a demo and it was love at first slice. I use it so much now - for cards, frames, scrapbook photos, mini albums, just everything. It makes circles and ovals a doddle and no matter how careful you are, you can't get results like it using scissors.
The scalloped circle is my new nestability die and I ran the patterned paper through the cuttlebug - it adds so much defintion and ooomph to any card.
Right am off to see if the memroy fairy has been...
