Hello and welcome back to my blog! We are almost on the last week of school and with all the tests we have tired grouchy pouchy kids that are counting the days till they can sleep in.  I don't blame them with so many exams to write regular Finals test, Provincial Achievement Tests and Diploma Exams.  It is a lot of pressure and unfortunately they all suffer from test anxiety. Truly I feel for them.

At 4 Crafty Chicks this week it is my turn to challenge you! So for Challenge #199 I would like to see ROUND CARDS! Now this is something outside of my crafting box. So onto Youtube I went and where I found several good tutorials but the best one came from my talented fellow chick Leanne while we were facetiming :) .  Within 5 minutes this card was on the go.  However it took me all afternoon to create this card.

So when you look below please don't fall off your chairs because you are right there are flowers on my card (another stepping outside of my comfort zone)*wink*.  No, it is not your imagination :) It all started with three flowers and well they just kept multiplying. My card is a little smaller as my biggest circle spellbinder is not that big. I also had a great time coloring up this image as I was thinking of Pink and the song Trouble.
