Happy thoughts

Good morning!

I've got one more day of work today before my little mini vacation of four days off starts, WOOT WOOT! Can you tell I'm SO looking forward to that, LOL! ;)
Until then though, I've still got to hurry and post before I run off to get ready for the day. So this card is a "just because" kind of card. I didn't have a challenge for it and no real creative motivation other than wanting to use this cute Pure Innocence girly! She comes in kind of a scene with grass and clouds and a butterfly she's chasing but I chose to cut her out and give her a fun felt butterfly instead... what can I say, I love me some cool embellies. :)

Okey dokey, have a lovely day my friends!
