Pieces of Heart August Dinner & Challenge

Time for the Pieces of Heart monthly dinner out and challenge!
This month we were challenged by our handsome mascot, Don,
to make a card using at least ten circles of at least two different sizes.
That one really made us scratch our heads.
But as you can see by these pictures, we met that challenge head on!

The cute card above was made by Jayne Singleton.
That little frog is sitting on a Lily pad...CUTE!
Diane Mickles turned her circles into a sunflower.
(I counted...exactly ten circle and two sizes!)
Judy Sumner's card is, appropriately for this time of year, a bookworm!
I believe this one is also Judy's.
(I am so sorry for the bad photo.)
The owl's feathers are made from circles.
Kristine Thurber added 'Bling' in Pearls to her card,
along with some pretty designer paper and embossed polka dots.
How pretty is this card from Patty Schnell?
She ran it through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder in the Big Shot.
In this photo, what you can't see because of the bad photography, (me),
is that the tree is made up of embossed card stock buttons from the
Sweet Buttons Embosslits folder.
Made by Deanna Schultz.
Theresa Tesson added a little interest to her card
by inking up a texture she found in her kitchen!
Love that idea.
Another cutie made by Deanna.
I've stolen ideas from her many times.
Thanks Deanna.
Keep 'em coming!

This is our famous Mascot, Don Schnell, and his card.
He participates in our challenges every month, and we love him for it.
His card is interactive in that when you open it up,
you see that the 'back end' of that little worm!
How clever!
Thanks for the challenge, Don.

Wouldn't you like to be a part of a Demonstrators group that has as much fun as we do?
Come on!
We would love to have you join us!


  1. What a great time we had. That was a fun challenge. Maybe next time we should bring a color coach, have Don close his eyes & pick a color palate.

  2. He is our lovable task master!
