You are so brave doing a circle card, I always chicken out! You have cut it out perfectly, you'd never guess it was done by hand! Love the image and your colouring is fab. Hope you have had a better day, just been reading about your washing machine. Eek! Love the look on your little mans face with the owl, bless!
