Konnichiwa Floral Blossoms

Hello!  Yay Friday is here!  :>  But when it comes as Friday at the end of Spring break it is a wee bit sad!  So have been enjoying having Ariel home from school!  I cannot believe how much more I have been able to craft with having two kids rather than just one!  :>  Last night we took the kids to see a movie, Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked and enjoyed spending time as a family!  So happy with how well Carter does at the movies now!  :>

Today I am babysitting my friends 3 kids 6 and under.  The youngst is only 18 months so I have been jumping up a lot as the silent little dude gets into stuff in the first half an hour I found him just about playing in the toilet (bathroom door shut now on) in my front closet, opening the tv glass doors (found childproof lock) and was he eating a toy?  Nope! Phew you forget how much these toddlers get into!  Currently they are all playing so nicely and I am not going to mess with that so I thought I would quickly blog!

Today I have a card to share that I used the other flower stamp from the Floral Blossom set by Hero Arts for Basic grey, I also used a Konnichiwa paper with it!


I entered this card last night in the flickr group for March's Hero Arts contest of fabulous flowers!  I am also entering this card into Lily Pad's challenge of Flowers, and Simon Says Stamps anything goes challenge!

I embossed the flowers with some chestnut zing powder onto the Konnichiwa patterned paper and than embossed them again onto matching cardstock cut them out and paper pieced them, using foam squares to give dimension!  My last several cards have been more springy and pink colors this color scheme is a welcome change, it looks so great on my craft table, I keep looking at it!

Well this post has been written here and there all morning as I have taken care of the kiddies!  Lunch is all ready to be eaten but needs to cool down!  :>  Hope you have a great weekend ahead of you!

It's nice when your own kids can play well together. And I hear ya on watching little ones, I think they have so much energy and they just suck it out of you!! What a beautiful card, love the layers and the colors.
