ABC H is for Hotspot.... Come and play!

A few of us over on the ABC Christmas Challenge, thought we would have another play with this fortnights there which is H is for Hotspot aka Spotlighting

Our fabby sponsor is Simon Says Stamp,

We also have a Guest Designer call for this challenge
So fancy a crack at being in the ABC Spotlight this time get yourself over and have a play and add GD after your name when you link ABC Christmas.

For my ½ way card I have used a penny black image wishes for kisses
As I only have one set of circle nesties I have hand cut the black circle that highlights the colour image circle so if your thinking you can not take part because you dont have 2 straight circles you can simply cut your image out and then with the same nestie draw around the out side edge and hand cut, or you can do what Helen has done and raise the image and omit the black circle.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

If you need some help with your mojo there are some fabulous cards the girls have made for this Challenge over at ABC Christmas Challenge, and don't forget to check out Dorte's brilliant tutorial 
HERE I have also added Dortes tutorial to my tutorial bar at the top on this blog so it you need it anytime you can find it quick :0)
Happy wednesday...
