Darn it !

I have a very quick and fun card this morning.  This is one of Mo Manning's digi stamps titled "Darn it" and I fell in love with the little elf the moment I saw him.  Of course I love it because it is sewing themed and also because he reminds me of fairytale elfs.  I'm thinking "The Elves and the Shoemaker" or perhaps "Rumpelstiltskin".  A completely different topic, but have you been enjoying the resurgence of fairytales on television and in movies?  I'm hooked on "Once Upon a Time" and "Grimm".

But back to today's card.  I hope I'm not too late for this week's CIRCLE theme on Mo Manning's Digital Blog.  So MANY wonderful cards using Mo's fabulous images and all in circles!  Entries for this week's challenge end this evening so I must scamper over and post my card before the deadline arrives.
