Let me tell you, it really has been pure sunshine around here this past week. Our highs have been in the mid to high 80s and I finally had to cave and turn the AC on... craziness! If the water wasn't still so freezing cold I would be tempted to jump in the lake after work, LOL! At least it should make for a pretty amazing Apple Blossom parade and festival in town this weekend... just can't forget the sunscreen. ;)
Come to think of it, this new May Day Birgitta looks like she is ready to walk the parade. Isn't she just the cutest? I love her short 'do and that bouquet of hers is a lot of fun to color. Of course I did mine to match the colors of the Vintage Bliss paper, which is still a recent fave of mine. Though it may be replaced soon when Simple Stories releases their new summer line, LOL, I know... I'm hopeless! Anwho, back to my card, it's really pretty simple since the paper design did most of the work for me. All I added was the sentiment, twine, and the wood veneer butterflies. Those butterflies are cool but I really hope that Studio Calico makes some teeny tiny ones for us card makers soon... fingers crossed!
Alrighty, I'm off for another busy day but don't forget that you still have until tonight to get your name added to the May Fairwee candies and winners will be announced in tomorrow's post. Also all of the May release stamps are now available for purchase in the ATS store.
Later gators! :)
