Thinking of you

Happy Saturday morning to ya!

This is my last one off for quite a while so I plan on enjoying it even if the weather is kinda rainy and gloomy. Heck, isn't that just a perfect excuse to say inside and craft? ;)

So I recently got this new Mix&Mend mini paper pad from Sassafras and OMGosh is it delish! First off, I just love the color combo (anything with a bit of orange is A-Okay in my book, LOL). And second, all of the embellishing is practically done for you already in the print... how cool is that?Seriously, doesn't it look like I took a long time aging and layering all of those bits and pieces? Nope, lazy me just used a single sheet of paper for the background! Not only that but I thought the design created the perfect little sitting spot for this Pergamano fairy stamp and her mouse friend.
I did add a few of my own touches like the sentiment, rub-on stitches, the pearls and that gorgeous crinkled ribbon that my sweet bloggin' buddy Kiara made. She actually sent me a virtual rainbow of her lovely ribbons and as soon as I pulled it out of the package I knew I had to add some to this card, it just had that vintage vibe that matched the paper to a 'T'... BIG thanks Kiara, I love it all! :)

Alright, I think that's it from me for the day... enjoy your weekend everybody!
