Sweet cherry lemonade

Hello!
How's it goin'?
Is life treating you well today?

When I sat down after work last night to make a quick card I decided to go back to that Basic Grey Lemonade kit that I've been trying to use up for the past couple months. I'm proud to say that after making this one I've only got two more to go, yeah!
So I was faced with this long, skinny card and none of the stamps I own were speaking to me... no one was jumping out as the perfect character for this card. Hmmmmm... what to do, what to do? I still wanted to use the kit so finding new paper wasn't an option. My only other choices from the kit were another long, skinny and a giant 5x7, neither of which appealed to the mood I was in. I had to come up with something and the chipboard cherries started forming an idea but I would have to do a bit of drawing to make it all come together.Hmmmmm... should I? I guess a little sneakie, sneakie couldn't hurt anything. So I decided to go for it. ;)
This little miss is just a taste of some upcoming Sweet November designs that are due to be released in the next few months but I'm not going to say anything more than that. Nope. Not gonna happen. My lips are sealed. :)

Needless to say, once I had her all colored up and ready to go the rest of the card came together very quickly. It's funny how the right stamps (or drawings) will present themselves for a project... they really do speak to you if you listen close enough. ;)

And because she's a little fairy I think I'll enter this into this week's Flutter By challenge too!

Okey dokey, time to get ready for another day of work. Thank goodness I have Monday off to look forward to!
