Let's go 'round in "Circles"

Lookin' for my latest Sugar Bowl project? 
Please scroll down just a wee l'il bit!

Hey my sweet friends!! Welcome, welcome, welcome! I've got a cute (well, I think it's cute) new card to share with you . . . I made it for this week's fun challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! Our "challenge" this week is to make a  . . .

"Circle Card"
(I translated that to mean a "ROUND" card . . . )

This sweet Mo Manning image is called "Bubbles" (girl) . . . and you can find her HERE in Mo's online store. Mo also created a little "boy" version that is just as adorable. You can find him HERE.

Here's a peek at the card that's tucked inside the pocket . . . the back side is blank for a personal note. Thanks to my sweet friend and DT sistah, Debbie, for the clever suggestion to add a smaller image inside! I love it!

The sentiment reads . . . 
"We don't stop playing because we grow old.
 We grow old because we stop playing."

(I may NEVER grow old then, 'cuz I definitely PLAY all the time!! hehe!)

I just love what you've done with this sweet image, Pat! The inside is just as creative. Thanks so much for stopping by to comment on my "Fishing" card. The snow is still on the mountains in Alaska. But the daffodils are in bloom and the trees are getting green!
