Make like a tree and leave

LOL!
Good morning! :)

Yeah for days off... though to be honest I've got quite a bit to do around here so it's not like I can just sit and chill all day. Still, it always feels good to get a lot crossed off the old to-do list so that's the game plan for the day.

My card today is for this week's Quixotic challenge to use leaves on your project... and wouldn't ya know that this paper from the new WeR card kit I was telling you about a few days ago fit the bill perfectly so I just had to use it! Once the paper was chosen it was time to pick out a stamp and this Kraftin Kimmie Clara stamp came to mind... again, perfect. :)
Though I did do a smidge of altering on her by wiping away the scarf from around her neck and changing the cuffs on her sleeves just so she would look a bit more springy. Now doesn't it look like Clara and her bird friend were just made to go with that paper? I also added a Verve sentiment to one of the chipboard pieces that came with the kit and threw in a few Prima leaves for good measure.
Once again, another quick yet fun card all thanks to some card kit goodness... awwww it's the little things that make me happy. ;)
