So beautiful to me...

Howdy folks!

It's review preview time once again over on the ATS blog. Since I didn't have time to get a card done for the CC Designs preview day I figured this was the perfect time to color up the new Fairy Abigail stamp. She is so sweet and pensive looking with her knees drawn up like that. I can just picture her sitting and dreaming about all sorts of magical things. :)

The Miss Caroline paper pad pretty much fell into my lap as I was straightening things up a bit so I went ahead and put some more of it to use. I love that colorful floral print, it really suits Fairy Abigail both in the style of the flowers and the colors. And wouldn't you know, there was a scrap of that OA cloud paper still on my desk and the blue was a perfect match. I know I keep using it over and over but it seemed so meant to be this time that I couldn't not use it, right? I didn't have any flowers that matched the pink in the paper so I actually used my Copics to color up some white Primas. If I had given myself more time I think I would have tried air brushing them for a softer look but they didn't turn out too bad. 

Alrighty, be sure to flutter on over to the ATS blog and check out what the rest of my fellow ATS teamies have created for the review today. Without a doubt they will have you longing for spring! 
Later gators!
