Circles Anyone?

Hey ya all! How is everyone doing this Thursday morning?  Me, I am doing good waiting for my good buddy Lori to come and craft with me.  Not sure if we will make cards, crochet or maybe we will do both.  The best thing is that we get to just spend some down time together.  What a week we had last week Tristan was at volleyball/basketball camp all week, then we had a family reunion that lasted the whole weekend.  I truly met some really amazing ladies.  Also this weekend we found out that my Uncle and Aunt were in a very bad car accident, so we are sending tons of love out to them and praying for their health and a speedy recovery.

Onto our new challenge for the week at 4 Crafty Chicks.  It was my week to pick the challenge and well circles, circles and more circles came to mind.  I can remember when I was younger having circles drawn all over everything.  I put designs in them, made faces and loved cutting them out.  Another fun fact is that when you are blowing bubbles and you look just the right way you can see a picture in them of whatever is behind you.  The picture underneath is from our holidays in 2011.  If you look at the bubble the scene in it is a picture of the water, trees and rocks behind us, not the trees in the back ground of this picture.  When we saw this we tried to snap so many pictures because it was amazing and beautiful.  Alas this is probably the clearest one. Sure wish I could blow it up for you.  Hope you like it.


Onto my card full of circles.  The pattern paper I used is Walk in the Park from Echo Park???  Both stamp sets are from Stampin Up, the one on the left is Tangy and Tart.  Not sure of the other stamp set.  Pattern paper with circles, embossed white paper with circles, my stamps are circles, 4 different circle punches and the gems. I tried to out do myself with the most circles to be used on one of my cards and yes my goal was accomplished.  At first I struggled with the layout but after walking away from it for a while, I came back and was satisfied.  Oh and it has been a while since I broke out the gems and well it seem I went gem crazy...LOL.
 I would love to enter my card into Make It Monday - #102 Anything Goes and The ABC Challenge - V for Vanish (my vanishing is pop ups behind my cherry flower with Thanks so much)
