Thinking of you...

Hello, hello!

I've got a just for fun card to share today. It came together simply because everything I used was the first thing I pulled at random from various piles. Shy Kaylee was on my desk in a pile of printed digi stamps that I like to keep on hand. Next I grabbed a random bag of scrap paper and blindly pulled out this piece of old Girls' Paperie. I liked both sides of the paper and there was enough of the scrap left that I could put the whole card together just using it. Then I went to town coloring Kaylee up to match in all those pretty pastels. Once she was ready to go all I had to do was get the papers on and figure out what kind of embellishments I needed to add that perfect finishing touch. Because I had used a gold pen to color Kaylee's hoop earring I decided to bring in a bit more gold with this roll of polka dot washi tape that was staring at me from the carousel on my desk. I'm still a bit of a noob when it comes to actually using washi on my cards so it felt good tearing off a strip... though my ocd made me back it with some white scrap paper so it would show up better. LOL, oh well... like I said, noob here. Anywho, stamp, gems, twine... all waiting to get put away but I put them to use instead. Considering how all the elements on this came together by random chance, I have to say that I kinda love it.  :)

Alrighty, I'm off to face the day.
Later gators!

So cute Amy. Love the soft colors. I haven't used washi tape yet, gotta get around to it. I have five Bu'fly Brinn's colored up and couldn't decide which one to use. Both of my parents liked the same one so she'll get in a card today. Hopefully she'll be posted by tomorrow. Have a great weekend.
