Good morning friends!

It's Tuesday but I don't think there is a new Glee to look forward to, such a bummer! On the upside, it does free up an hour for crafting this evening. How's that for looking on the bright side of things? LOL ;)

I think I must still be dreaming of spring greens (none here yet... though all of the rain we've been getting should help once the sun decides to shine again) because this card ended up quite different than I had originally intended. I knew that I wanted to play with this cute Agnes Ketto and do a bit of altering to wipe away her big pom-pom pigtails, giving her a short pixie cut instead... love it!

Anywho, once I had that done I figured that I would be digging through all the pink and pretty scraps off my desk to finish off the card. Instead a couple of sticker sheets caught my eye and I had found Agnes' home! I'm pretty sure they were supposed to go with a 'boy' line of paper but I think they work just as well for a spring look with all of the mud puddles and new green leaves filling the trees.

So yep, besides the cardstock base most all of the decorative elements on this card are stickers. As much as I love pretty papers, this was a fun change of pace for me and don't you think Agnes looks like a little wood nymph amongst the trees? Awwwww... :)

Ok, time for me to flitter off and get ready for the day, TTFN! Supply list:
