Think spring...

Good morning!

The day looks to be a sunny one but the temps aren't getting out of the low 50's so it is still a bit chilly here. That makes it perfect weather to get some serious card making done today. :)
And I did manage to get into all sorts of trouble yesterday, though I promise that it was the good kind of trouble. The kind that resulted in me getting my hands on some of the new Girls' Paperie lines that I have been searching for high and low! You see... I was waiting and waiting for the new papers to show up in my usual go-to online stores but when I asked if they were getting them in none of them were... gasp! So I made a little trip to a crafty store and totally lucked into the papers I was looking for... yeah! Needless to say, I couldn't wait to dive right in and put some of them to use. ;)

The Tickled Pink challenge this week is to think spring... colors that is... so I pulled out some of the Vintage Whimsy papers and border stickers and got to work. I think that the soft pastels are just ideal for this challenge. I paired them with one of my all time fave Lolitas, 20s Evie, as I always love how she looks all colored up. And I just realized that this isn't the first time that I've used her with some kind of bird image either... apparently I really like to put Evie outside enjoying nature, LOL!

We would love to have you play along and show us your spring colors for a chance at winning a great prize from the Tickled Pink store. Just be sure to use a Tickled Pink stamp in order to qualify, these include Lolitas, Lads, Pinkettes, Pink Pets and Cherries. Then link up your card or creation at the TP Challenge blog by next week. And good luck!

Amy this is just so goergeous! I love those papers and I a happy for you that you could find them and have them in hand in less than 24 hours. lol.. I love shopping online, but there is nothing quite like having it in hand right away. Evie looks wonderful with this set as well. It's like she was made for them. Glad you are having fun on your days off. Hugs, Lisa
