Hello there

Happy last day of 2012!  We are busy, busy today.  There are 4 kids currently in da house (2 of ours and 2 of our friends) as they prep for their annual NYE party and Iron Chef competition. The kiddos are currently watching Madagascar 3 which will be followed by lunch and rock painting.  For tonight's Iron Chef Competition, this year's theme ingredient is citrus.  We will be bringing lemon bars and a garlic lime chicken (which I still have to make.... like I said, busy!).

Given that the to-do list is long today, I am just popping in the share another Avery Elle card I created for the AE i{heart}u challenge.  This one uses elements from Blossoms and Blooms, Bright Days, To the Point, and Merry and Bright to create this super bright flower.


I first stamps the circle from Bright Days in the top third of the card in black ink.  Next, I stamped the larger leaf from Blossoms and Blooms around the circle in many, many colors of ink to create the petals.  The stem was created by stamping the line from Merry and Bright in black ink along with more leaves from Blossoms and Blooms. 


I tried to emboss the sentiment from To the Point directly onto the stamped circle, but it was a bit of an epic fail, so instead I die cut a circle from black cardstock and embossed the sentiment in white.  A small gem finished off the card.

Well, that's all for me today!  Thanks for stopping by!
