Celtic Circles Background

Hello crafters and welcome back!  The next die on offer is the Celtic Circles Background.  Shown here with Pixie powders behind, you can really see how lovely this die will be to use with any of your frames and tags.  It makes a beautiful paring with Lottie, don't you think?  Don't forget to leave your comments and if you are a first timer to the blog, it is ever so easy.  I have instructions on how to leave a comment on the blog on the right hand side of the blog for you to follow.  Remember you have to be in it to win it, so a comment is a must!  Well that's it for day three. Have you a favourite just yet?  Day four will begin her at 6am in the morning.  I would love to have you join me back here then.  All for now,  Sue x

Hi Sue
Another beautiful background die. I’m in a quandary, do I love this die more than Claire? I think they will have to share the top spot of favourites.

Fabulous finish to say 3. Lots of gorgeous new collections to swoon over (obviously I have my favourite ) it would be rude not to have a favourite of the day. So much inspiration and this final die for today goes so well with your Lottie, a sweet little mixer ☺
Thanks for another lovely day Sue and for your generosity xxx

Fabulous background die!!!

Donita Naylor said...

Well hello, Lottie,

Look how the Celtic Circles become a background of diamonds instead of basketballs.

Whenever context changes the perception of a word into something completely unintended, I say like to say that words are such monkeys. But color is a monkey too, and in this case sent the circles into the rear and brought forward the diamonds between the circles.

I’m not a sports fan, but I live in Rhode Island, which follows all the Boston sports teams. One day it struck me that we should be pronouncing Boston’s basketball team name with a Kay rather than a See sound. Can you imagine how funny it would sound if everybody said Keltics for Boston’s basketball team? Are we calling them Keltic circles, the way the word should be pronounced? Or are we calling them Celtic, like the basketball team?

Same with the squares. I’ll listen carefully on the video.

Best,
Donita from Rhode Island.


Ann said...
