Yeah, it's Saturday! And I've got this weekend off... there's no telling what kind of trouble I could get myself into. Though to be honest I'll probably just end up enjoying the sunshine and cleaning up the yard. I want to go into town and get some flowers for the flower pots by the front door, hopefully they have some great colors to choose from. The more orange and pink that I can find, the better. :)
So for today's card I actually inked up a new stamp that I just got this past week. Lili of the Valley recently had a free shipping deal that I took advantage of and I was happy to give this little Blossom a new home. Considering this used to be apple country, I grew up surrounded by the sweet smell of apple blossoms this time of year. And even though the orchards are fewer and further between these days, Blossom on her tree branch was totally calling to me.
I paired her up with the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline paper pad because the soft pinks reminded me of apple blossoms and the wood grain kinda looks like the bins that we would use come harvest time. Just the right colors and textures for this tree climbing cutie.
Okey dokey ladies, enjoy your weekend! :)
