On a sweeter note...

Good morning!
So did you spring forward this morning? I have a love/hate relationship with daylight savings time... on the one hand I love that it stays lighter longer into the evening, on the other hand this morning is always a killer because it feels like I've lost time and that always seems to take me a day or two to get adjusted to.

So with that I'll get right to my card since I've got work to get ready for too. I figured I needed to balance all the creepy from this past week with a little sweet so out came one of my new Pure Innocence stamps that I got at All That Scraps. This is Fairy Girl and I think she's adorable. :)
I'm entering her into the 100th Flutter By challenge that is open this week and can you believe I didn't use any paper on this card? Instead I had a sheet of My Mind's Eye border stickers that I cut up and pieced together for the background. I gotta say, it felt good to use up a whole sheet of something and throw away the packaging. ;)

Alrighty, time for me to make like a banana and split.

It is so strange that we still all change our clocks but at least I was not working as that is always a killer when you lose an hours sleep before having to go in :D
This is as always very cute I love that little girl.

What a great way to 'make' patterned paper! You've colored that fairy so sweetly! I love this card!

Yes, daylight savings time is a killer for me during the morning time...especially when we spring forward! Looking forward to tonight's extra hour of sunshine though :).
