Make me smile

Monday, Monday... whether you love it or dread it I hope this new week is off to a great start for ya. At least it's a bit of a holiday here in the States so no work for me! The only down side of that is no mail runs today either... always a bummer. I'll try not to let it spoil my day though. ;)

Well are you surprised to see more of the delish Stella and Rose papers today? Probably not, LOL! I wasn't kidding about how much I love them! This time I combined sheets from three of the four collections and the rainbow of sunny, happy colors makes this card eligible for this week's Flutter By challenge... to use a rainbow of colors. I managed to get a little red, orange, yellow, green and aqua on this so I think it works. That and the sweet Pergamano fairy that I colored up to match, 'cause you've got to have a butterfly, fairy or angel too.
It's been a while since I've played along but I always enjoy Danni's challenges so much. And since a week hardly goes by without some kind of fairy making it onto one of my cards I really don't have much of an excuse not to! :)

Ok, I'm gonna take off now and see what kind of trouble I can get into in my crafty room today... chat at'cha later!

Amy this is just adorable. She looks sad, but like she is getting happy fast. I love all the colors and the way you have put them together. So sweet! Have an awesome day off. It's getting sunny here all ready. Yesterday we were outside without coats. Crazy weather for sure. Hugs, Lisa
