Hola!

Good morning!

I hope you aren't getting tired of seeing cards with the new Roll Call Wild Sprouts yet because I'm still having too much fun with them (and they are available for purchase starting today, yeah!). :)
So today it is Maria's turn and OMGosh isn't she just the sweetest little baby doll there is? She totally reminds me of my best friend from grade school, Liz. Liz always had her hair done up with the coolest barrettes that a little girl could ever long for. So I had to color Maria up to look just like the little Liz from my memories.
I used Pam's CA & Friends Saturday sketch for the design of my card and I also made my own flower embellishment so that I could enter this into the Quixotic challenge this week. I cut out a couple circles of paper towel and used a small brad to hold them together. I spritzed them with Glimmer Mist and scrunched it up, then let it dry like that. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it hardened a bit and held its scrunchy shape once all was said and done. Yeah!

Sigh, I guess I should be getting ready for work now... can you tell I'm having a hard time getting jazzed about that? It's just so beautiful out that I can think of a dozen other things that I'd rather be doing today but responsible Amy is winning out once again this morning. Ok, I'm off... see ya tomorrow! :)
