Sunshine, on my shoulders

makes me happy...

So, how's everyone doing this morning?

Me? I'm good. Getting ready for work and looking forward to the day in general. I don't know why really, just woke up with a good feeling and I'm hoping it lasts. :)

This card seems to be reflecting my good mood to a 'T'... aren't the colors delish? They totally take me to my happy place LOL! Even though I haven't technically used up that Basic Grey card kit I've been playing with, when I found this new WeR Vintage Blue card kit it was totally calling my name. Between the fab color combo and the whimsical designs, this line may just be one of my new all time faves... and I never make that claim lightly. ;)
Of course I had to play with their recipes a bit and tweak the designs 'cause it's just what I do but that doesn't mean I don't love how quick and easy a kit can make the whole card making process. It was so quick that I had enough time to sketch out this new little fairy that may, or may not be a teaser of some future stamp designs... whistle, whistle... ;)

Anywho, don't be surprised if you start to see a lot more of these Vintage Blue papers on my cards in the near future... I don't think I'll be able to resist myself. :)

Ok take care my friends, see ya back here tomorrow with a Club Anya sneak peek!
