Pixie perfect

Well hello there and happy Saturday to you my friends!

I got quite a bit crossed off my to-do list yesterday... which feels great I must say, so I've given myself permission to just take it easy today. No schedule, no plans, no problems... well at least that's how I hope it goes. :)

So when I saw that this week's inspiration at the Flutter By challenge came from a Tinkerbell image I knew I was going to go way literal with my card. Mostly because I've had this clear Tink stamp set for over a year and it had never seen ink yet so I figured this was the perfect time to rectify that situation. ;)

Now I gotta say that I bought this set before I found TGF and was then introduced into this whole amazing world of crazy cool image stamps so even though I love Tink and her fellow pixie pals I was a tad disappointed with the teeny size once I got her inked and on paper... she's not much bigger than a Ketto fairy. This paired with the fact that the stamp is acrylic and not rubber and I can honestly say the image is not nearly as sharp or as detailed as it could be.
Yikes! Does this mean I am becoming a stamp snob?! ;)

Still, I'm glad I finally showed these stamps some love 'cause like I said, I love Tink and her friends... big shocker there, right? :) Hey, at least she was super quick to color and since I had some Disney Fairy paper in my stash that made the rest of the card super quick to put together too. As you can see I didn't do anything very creative with the background... it's kinda my quick 'go-to' layout scheme but I do like how this one came together in the end. And that's what matters most, right?

Anywho... I hope you are enjoying your day and getting some 'me time' for yourself as well. I think I hear my craft room calling me so I'll catch y'all tomorrow. :)
