Well – it’s happened again. Monday! I hope that you all had a great weekend and are ready and refreshed for the week to come. If not – take heart, there’s only 4 days left. This one doesn’t count.

Using a 2 5/8″ straight-sided circle Framelit, cut a hole in the card base, lining up the center of the framelit with the 2 1/4″ score line – and cheating it towards the side, as you can see in the picture.
