You're in my thoughts

Hello and good morning!
It looks to be a lovely Saturday, though I'll be spending most of it working. I hope that you all are getting a chance to have some fun though! :)

I made a quick, but still super cute card for today and I'm entering it into the Emerald Faerie Garden challenge #3 to use flowers. I was SO excited to see that All That Scraps is now carrying these fab Aussie stamps, giving those of us here in the States a convenient place to buy them from. Needless to say, I now own a few of these cuties in rubbah... woot, woot! This time I chose to ink up Boo minus his snail friend Snookie, and instead had him sit atop my sentiment bubble. And sure this might be a little light on the flowers considering what the challenge is but I think that the pattern paper back there makes up for only having one little flower embellishment. ;)

Ok, I guess I should get a move on and tackle hair and make-up... fun, fun, fun...
Hasta la vista, baby! :)
