Thinking...

Mornin' folks!

Any big plans for the upcoming weekend? Besides work, I'll just be staying in and trying to keep warm while I dream of all the crafty fun going on at CHA down in sunny CA. Talk about being jealous! I can't wait to hear about the show from all the lucky gals who are attending this year.

Anywho, my card today features a digital stamp from A Day for Daisies called Braid in my Hair. I spotted this pretty lady back in December when I got a couple of Christmas digis but didn't get her right away. Something kept drawing me back to her though, I'm thinking it's that fab head of hair. I gotta say that it was so much fun to color. Personally, I'm a short hair girl all the way but there is something about a long, tousled braid that transports me right into a fairytale. So in my mind she is a princess surrounded by her little birdie friends. The papers are called Songbird and they had the romantic, vintage feel that I was looking for... kinda shabby chic just like the princess. ;)

Okey dokey, I'm going to scoot now. Lots to do, lots to do... see ya in 24!

Oh this is gorgeous Amy!!! I love the softness of her, reminds me of the portrait that Leonardo Da Vinci created from Ever After.
BTW, thanks for the awesome comment you left me. Totally made my day!
Have a great one and a fabulous weekend. I'm hoping to go to CHA if not to the show, then to visit. You'll have to come one day. :)
