Friday challenge Use Half circle

Well today's challenge at notimetostamp is to use a half circle in your layout. What do I know about half circles??? Well I've heard of half baked and half arsed,( which I am most adapt at) so how hard could a half circle be I asked myself. I don't do layouts most of the time in fact the closest thing to a lay out is when I laid out in the sun last summer but that's a whole different story. Anyway I used my large Nestie scalloped circle and a wee smaller one and then proceeded to cut them in half and voila...a half circle. DD sent me this pad of Basic Gray paper called porcelain and this is one of the sheets. Pretty nice. Along with my half cirlces I decided to use some nice black satin ribbon from my old pal Mike's place, some nifty little sparkly stones, a lovely stamp from SU, and a nice birthday phrase from Impression Obsession just stamped in nice black. Put it all together and it's ready for my friend's birthday. I will send her 2 cards, one pretty and one funny cause when you get older you love getting mail that is not a bill.
Weekend time and hopefully it will quit raining and warm a bit. Can't even get out to pull those pesky weeds and it's just breaking my heart. Oh, right ! Have a fun time good people . Tonight is the telling tale for our Detroit Red Wings and their quest for the Stanley Cup....Go Wings!!! WIN..WIN..WIN ! I'm wearing my red under panties to cheer them on.

Pat....I, too, am from the lovely
state of Michigan (Royal Oak) and
am cheering on the Red Wings!!! My
husband definitely thinks I'm a
"Wing Nut", but he watches the
games right along with me now.
Your card today is lovely. I love
that Porcelain BG paper!

Gorgeous card, Pat.
Love that paper, beautiful image.
Sorry to hear about the "Wings"...maybe next year. At least they did better than our "Maple Laughs".
