Sooo cute

Hiya, how ya doin'?

Can you believe it's Thursday already? I'm looking forward to my day off tomorrow... I'll be going to town to get my hair cut and I SO cannot wait. I tend to go through these cycles of kinda growing it out (especially my bangs) and just when they get long enough to tuck behind my ears I can't stand it anymore so it's time to go short again. ;)

I've got a super quick card to share today and once again not a scrap of pattern paper is in sight... craziness! Though I did use a fun My Mind's Eye sentiment diecut as the inspiration for this entire card... I just thought the colors in it would look great on a simple kraft card base. Once I had that all figured out I ended up altering the little TGF Wild Thing Bear by cutting off her bear ears and drawing a new, seated body for her so that she would fit on the sentiment.
Like I said... quick, fun and it puts a smile on my face. :)

Okey dokey, off to work I go... thanks for stopping by today! Supply list:
cardstock- Jillybean Soup kraft and PTI
My Mind's Eye sentiment diecut
stamp- The Greeting Farm (Wild Things set)

Don't you hate the in between cycles our hair has to go through to get it where we want it, I have fought off getting it cut short for ages, I must admit, I am glad I did, hope you love your new style, I love this card (as usual) I love the string behind the insert, colours gorgeous my girl.
