Going In Circles

That's an appropriate title for how my life is at times....I travel in a lot of circles.  I have personally diagnosed myself as having a bit of ADD. ( OK...honestly my hubby has hinted at it)  I start one project but get sidetracked and move to another then eventually get back to the original thing that I started.  The fortunate thing is that I LOVE circles...and dots.  Ovals are great too.  Besides.... going in circles can be fun.  Just look at what a fun card a bunch of circles produced....

  This card just  makes me really  happy.  I love the colors.  I love that it says, "I love U."  I love that polka dot ribbon.  I love the distressing, paper piercing and all those little shingled circles as a border.  I love the swiss dots embossed circles and I love that the heart in the center has tiny circles inside it.  It's stamped on CHOCOLATE chip paper and it looks like a Slow Poke candy.  Can you tell how much I miss chocolate:(????   I love chocolate and think anything brown should now just be called chocolate instead of brown.  That is a much better title.   Example: "Look at my new brown ( said in my most boring voice) handbag." Or  "Hey!  Look at my new CHOCOLATE handbag!"  Imagine a bag FULL of chocolate!

Oh Lord!  How many more days til Easter???!!!!

Anyways....back to the circles and card.  Sorry!

Are you wondering why I'm talking so much about circles today and why I put so many on my card?  Well that's the challenge today over at Stamptacular.

Create a project or a card that has as many circles on it as you can possibly
include without making it gaudy.

  Link your creation up on the blog and you could have a chance at winning a Gift Certificate to Simon Says Stamp.  I'm so excited about that.  I just found out that they are based out of Ohio which is where I live.  I love promoting companies in my own state.


They are also offering FREE SHIPPING!

This is one of my favorite challenges so far.  I hope you will join us.

I am also entering this into The Play Date Cafe challenge 17.  This is one of my favorite color combos and this picture is scrumptious.

Gotta go.  I have some laundry to do and oh!  While I'm in this room I might dust.  Oh I forgot to put these earrings back in the bathroom.  Now, while I'm here I should clean the toilet and tub.  Oh look at those towels on the floor.  I better take these down to the laundry.  Hey!  Isn't that what I was doing???  Laundry.....that's right!

Eventually it all comes full circle....Eventually:)
Have a blessed Sunday!

Love your card and your post really made me laugh! That is me through and through. I wonder if it is something in the air in Ohio?

Hi Nikki, thx for the sweet comment you left on my blog.
Once I looked at your profile.
I remembered that you are from S. Ohio. Just like me. I love this part of God's country. I think we get the perfect dose of each season. Well....winter could be a little shorter. IMO!

Our Yukon totes arond four kids. And we'll have had it 5 yrs next month. My oldest was 6 when we got it and I was expecting my 4th. So, it's been through some "child" abuse!! One trick I've learned is keeping towels down on the floor. It's cuts down stains and tracking by about 3/4. I just shake and wash the towels when they need it!
I can imagine how bad a milk spill would smell in the heat! Poor you! :)

I love how you used the circles on your card! The border is delightfully creative!
