Thinking of you

Good morning friends!

It feels kinda weird not to have some kind of sneak peek to share with you today but it was fun to make a card "just because". And my "just because" on this one was a chance to play with some new stamps and papers. :)

I recently got the new CC Designs Swiss Pixie Spring set and couldn't wait to dive into them! This little cutie was the first one to grab my attention and since I was in a mood to color I decided to use some of the other background stamps to create an entire scene for her to live in. I did some masking so that the fence appears to be behind her and I also stamped the fence twice so it would span the entire length of the cardstock. All I had to do was draw in a couple connecting posts and voila... longer fence!
Because there was so much going on in the scene I kept the rest of the card pretty simple and didn't even add any embellishments... shock! Well, I guess technically the stitching is really rub-ons but other than that... no embellies. What can I say? Sometimes a girl just wants to color. ;)

Alrighty, I guess I had better go get ready for work... boy am I dragging my feet this morning. Hopefully I can get a little pep in my step before too long!
Oh! And before I forget... you still have through today to enter for a chance to win on the Sweet November candies. I'll be random generating winners tonight and announcing them on tomorrow's post. So good luck!

Nothing beats a bit of colouring in, not in my world anyway, it's my favourite thing :)

Oh Amy!! I LOVE this. One thing i'd love to try is making a scene in a card but I don't have the stamps. Maybe I have the digi's, i'll have to see about masking digi's if I do :)
