A fairy happy hello...

Hello, hello!

Thanks for all the congrats on my new car. It's funny, this is my very first brand new vehicle and like Lisa mentioned in the comments yesterday, I do find myself coming up with all sorts of reasons to drive it around, LOL! And if I can't find any nice orange seat covers like Leanne suggested I'm sure I'll find something orange and happy to dangle from the rear view mirror. ;)

As for my card today, I had just received a couple of the new Tiddly Inks fairy stamps that I ordered and couldn't wait to ink one up. I chose Sunny Day this time and paired her up with some more great cloud paper, this one from Carta Bella. Needing some inspiration to put the card all together I headed on over to the Flutter By Challenge to see if I could play along. This week it is a recipe challenge to use flowers, at least one butterfly and a punch/die. I kind of ended up taking the challenge a step further by using a bunch of different dies to get the flowers and butterflies that I needed. I have collected so many great dies that it always feels good putting them to use... which I really should do more often. All in all, I really think this card came together quite nicely and I am very happy with it. :)

Well, I can't believe we are at another Friday already. At least this weekend should be a bit less crazy and we have some lovely sunshine once again in the forecast. Hopefully y'all are getting some sunshine too!

Later gators!
