99% Angel

Greetings and salutations!

Is anyone else starting to get the feeling that winter may finally be coming to an end and spring is just waiting right around the corner? The temps here still aren't anything to get warm by, hovering in the mid to high 30s, but it has been enough this past week that every day more and more grass is starting to appear and I am all for it! All I know is that when Ground hog's Day rolls around that little critter had better not say there are six more weeks of winter!

So I broke my red and black streak with my card for today and I'm back to pink and red. I fell in love with this sassy cutie as soon as I laid eyes on her during preview week and I've been dying to color her up since she arrived on my doorstep. The sentiment comes from a sticker that I got back in high school in one of those cheap plastic bubble vending machines that sit next to grocery store exits. For some reason it really stuck with me and I still have that sticker on my cork board that hangs in my crafting space. Perhaps it's because I feel like that most days... other days that percentage drops quite a bit lower though, LOL! ;)
Oh and I'm on quite a roll with using my tools too... yesterday it was the Cuttlebug and today I pulled out the Slice to cut out the little birdies I needed for that perfect finishing touch on this one. Big pat on my own back for that, heeheehee!

Alrighty, time for me to bid you adieu and go get ready for work... tata!

Hi Amy. This is adorable! I love the 99% Angel...Perfect! You got me in the mood yesterday to use my Cricut so that is what I did last night. I needed some hearts and though "Wow, you have a Cricut in the closet and you can't find any hearts? Hello?" lol! So, big pat on your back for using your tools and getting my toosh to use some of mine. Hugs, Lisa

Gorgeous colour combo, and the image is absolutely 100% cute...!

There is nothing that looks like spring in my part of the world. We had minus 12 degrees C today... and lots of snow. Guess we have to wait quite a while to see any grass at all.
