Lili of the Valley Circle Card!

I cannot believe it's been over a week since I last posted. My kids have been sick and of course I started coming down with it too. For 6 days I didn't get more than 2-3 hours of sleep at a time. I would check one of them, give them medicine, and wait for it to kick in go back 20 minutes or so later to make sure the fever was going down, then I would feel ok to fall asleep. Then the other would wake up. Plus I was setting my alarm clock every few hours to give them medicine. My poor Belle still has no voice, but I know she's feeling better. I HOPE next week is back to normal!!!!!!

I had a few hours to make a card and I really wanted to make a circle card. Angie is GDT over at Lili of the Valley and her card is drop dead gorgeous.. just looking at it gives me so much inspiration. As her cards normally do! I went with bright colors once again. I really wanted to use this new FlowerSoft that I got. It's sooooo pretty I  just love that stuff!!!

Hope you have a great weekend.

Angie said...

Hey Mindy!
Finally got a moment alone with my computer :-) Your card is gorgeous girl!!! These circle cards are so much fun. It's a whole new challenge when you don't have any corners to work with. I love that pink and orange together. I don't even want to know how long it took to put the looped ribbon around the edges! You have far more patience than I. You've colored this little fairy just perfectly too. Love her orange skirt! And could the sentiment be any more perfect!!! Awesome card :-)
