Well I'm happy to report that I was able to cross off at least half of the stuff on my to-do list yesterday. It helped that I didn't allow myself to turn the laptop back on 'til late afternoon, LOL! So I'm actually starting this week off in a pretty good place. It's going to be another long Monday but I'm looking forward to tonight, so it's all good. :)
Ya know how I've been trying to ink up neglected stamps lately? Well I'm proud to say that this little Pure Innocence Blowing Bubbles cutie had a pretty quick turn around because I just got her in the mail on Thursday, so she didn't have to sit and wait for ages. At first I was going to pair her with the soft Neapolitan papers, which I still think would look pretty, but I decided to give those papers a break and play with some brighter colors instead. I love the dark denim from the On the Bright Side paper pad even if it does give this card more of a summer feel rather than spring. Nothing wrong with a little bit of summer day dreaming (especially since it tried to snow again yesterday).
I paper pieced her outfit and just added some shading to give it some depth. Something about this little gal was calling out for freckles too, so I couldn't resist adding some across her cute face. Then I had fun splattering on those blue droplets in the background from a bottle of Sprinklers. Don't they kind of look like bubbles floating all around her?
Alrighty, time for me to scoot. Thanks for stopping by today!
