Just because...

Hello, hello!

I'm just quickly popping in this morning, as I already feel like I'm running behind. There is a memorial race going on in town this morning so I'm going to have to head to work earlier than normal. The participants pretty much take over the highway that I use to get to work so I'll be driving the back hills route instead. Since I really don't want to risk running down any runners or cyclists it will be a longer commute.

So, earlier this week I was lucky enough to be the winner of the Girly Girl challenge at The Greeting Farm and I was able to pick a digi stamp of my choice as the prize. Wild Sprout Jessica was on my wish list so I was excited to finally play around with this cutie. And when I saw that the new Farm Fresh challenge is summer themed cards I suddenly envisioned her not as wearing regular ol' glasses but fabulous sun glasses instead. ;)
I also did a bit of a body swap to give Jessica a more summer ready ensemble. All I had to do was stamp up Wild Sprout Summer and give Jessica her shorts and legs. Once she was ready for the warmer weather I paired her up with some of that Lakeside paper that I'm so in love with. The whole card came together super quick after that. 

Well I really should be going. Take care and have a fabulous weekend! :)
