Dance, dance, dance!

Good morning!
I hope that everyone enjoyed the weekend and are ready to greet this new week with a smile on their face. :)

If you are needing any help with that smile, maybe this card will do the trick... the bright cheery colors and happy look on Mae's little face sure make me grin. Today I am once again playing along with the Odd Girls as they focus on an individual stamp from the new release coming up on May 2nd each day this week. We are kicking previews off with Dancin' Mae and I get such a sense of joy from this image that it is hard not to dance right along side her for a bit! ;)
As I was digging through a bag of paper scraps, searching for the perfect background for Mae, I came across this crazy Sassafras paper. The vibe it created was just what I needed to help give this card an overall feel of euphoric happiness... ya know... that sense of being transported to a whole 'nother world where it is just you and the music... groovy! I think it works anyway! LOL :)

So be sure to head on over to the Some Odd Girl Blog everyday this week, April 25-30, to see Mae doin' her thang as well as all five of the other stamps as they are featured on their days. There are also many more chances to win, so don't miss out! All winners will be announced on release day, May 2nd, on the Some Odd Girl Blog.
