Enjoy every moment

Happy Sunday my friends... I hope everyone effected by the tsunami warnings yesterday managed to stay high and dry, my thoughts have been with you all. :)

Despite all of the crazy weather so many places have been experiencing this winter, we've had it a lot milder than usual in my neck of the woods. Heck, we're already seeing signs of springs like the crocus flowers pushing their way up through the dirt and its got me so ready for some warmer weather. And I can't help it, my cards are definitely reflecting that wish.

So I pulled out Travel Anya and used her head with Dress Me Anya's body because I just love how it looks like her hair is blowing in a gentle breeze. Now rather than taking a trip through busy, crowded airports Anya is strolling through a peaceful meadow full of fluttering butterflies and sweet smelling flowers... who wouldn't want to join her? Oh and see those little crochet flowers? My wonderful sister has taken up crochet recently and she made them just for me. I'm hoping now that I've used them up she will make me a bunch more... hint, hint Jacque... LOL ;)
I'm also entering my card into this week's Flutter By challenge. It's open so I figured it would qualify with all those little butterflies flitting about. :)
Alrighty, I'm off to work... catch ya on the flip side!

Hi Amy. This is adorable. I just received Travel Anya in the mail yesterday and Madison had to make a card with her. This is so cute with her dress. I love the butterflies and the paper with her. Just adorable. Yes, I know I said that already. But worth saying twice. Jerry laughed at your email last night. It is so weird how much I am loving these papers.lol....Hugs, Lisa

Hi Amy!

Thanks for the prayers . . . we, here in Hawaii, are ok. Nothing more than some waves and we are all safe!

I luv those crochet flowers! I have some myself in my stash but I'm hesitant to use them. ;) I'm holding on to them for . . . I don't know . . . I can't bear to put them on a card just yet. Have a great Sunday!

Very sweet and as always, loving your flowers!

I hear soft music from a harp when I look at your card. It is very relaxing and I do feel a little bit of wind from the hills and butterfly wings (*note to self*- must get that punch! :)).

I love her dress and her hair blowing in the wind. Yes, thank goodness the tsunami warnings were just that. So scary that another big earthquake has hit!

Haha, you are so funny with your knowledge of paper companies! How DID you know all of that? I think that because you know and use so much paper, they should hire you for their DT so you can get more papers!!! :)

Hmm, you're right about CReative Imaginations still being in business. I think it was Creative Project or something that went out. Ok, have a great day at work!
