Hang in there...

TGIF my crafty friends!

It looks like it's going to be a gorgeous weekend with near record highs and I'm ready for it. Apple Blossom celebrations are in full swing with parades tomorrow and next weekend so town should be hoppin'. I guess this means I should officially say good bye to cooler weather and pack up all my winter clothes and pull out the shorts, crop pants, and maxi dresses.  ;)

In the spirit of enjoying some outdoor fun I decided to color up this super cute Wryn stamp from Tiddly Inks called Hang in There. She's been 'hanging out' in my stash all winter just waiting for her chance to grace a card. I love, and have a tendency to collect, cloud print papers so it was nice to use some up here because it really creates a great backdrop for Wryn as she dangles from that branch. The colors were kept bright and cheery because I wanted the overall look to be as uplifting as the sentiment that comes with the set. And it seems like my CAS streak continues... I'm not sure if it is more of a shift in my crafting style or the continued time crunch that I find myself in? I guess we'll just have to wait and see where it goes from here.  :)

Well thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Amy this is really really cute! I love how bright and happy this card is. We had wonderful weather yesterday, but today that old wind is blowing and the clouds are blocking out any sunshine, so it is a tab cool here today. I hope you are getting all that sunshine that decided it didn't want to play around here. :O) Oh well, I guess I just have to pull out my new Tress (THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU) and get the nerve to finally color her up. Hugs Lisa
