I'm just a little bit caught in the middle...life is a maze and love is a riddle...

Hey y'all! How's your week going? I am BIZZY! I'm getting samples ready for two releases this week, as well as a super busy week at work. Boy, I really could use a nap! My husband went to the store tonight, and he asked, "Do you need anything?" Boy, what a question.
I said, "Oh! Yes, I need a chef, a maid, and a nap." Well, he asked.

Anyway, I took a few minutes to myself tonight to get this idea out on paper. I've had it ever since I saw the Funky Flames stamp from Stamping Bella's Scraplines collection. And it turned out better than I imagined! Check it out:


How fun is that? (Yes, I know, I might get injured patting myself on the back...) Here's a closeup:


So the scoop is, I cut the largest candle apart and stamped the largest flame 10 times on different patterns from the Ducks in a Row collection from October Afternoon. After I cut them out, I shaped them with my fingers and adhered them to a small black circle punched out of a scrap. Once they were all layered on there, I found a yellow button to add to the center. To finish off the card, I chose this {celebrate life} sentiment and stamped it in Old Olive onto my 4 1/4" square Cream card base. Then I did a little doodling around the edges of the card to bring it all together. Fun!

Well, I hope you like...I'll be back in a bit with some Verve!

Oh! And a reminder...there will be a Bella release on Friday, January 15th, and in celebration, our Bellariffic Friday theme is Lovey Dovey. Here's Emily's description:
