Just a note

Good morning!
It's shaping up to be another lovely day here and I'm excited to have it off. Sure, my 'to-do' list has plenty on it but on days like this it is hard not to want to just go out and play... maybe even hit the lake for a nice swim and cool down this afternoon... now that sounds like a plan!

But before I skip off to have my fun, there is a brand new challenge now up over on the Tickled Pink challenge blog and we want to see you use feathers on your card or project.
I don't use feathers a whole lot but every once in awhile they make for a cool touch so I was excited to have an excuse to put some to use. I already had Lil Little Willow all colored and cut out due to a fussy cutting video that I made last week for the TP blog and I wanted to get her onto a card. This isn't my usual process so I was a bit thrown, since I am usually pulling my papers first and then coloring up an image to match them. It was trickier for me to try and find papers to match the image. So in the end I kinda just grabbed some paper off my desk and went for it... heck, it had feathers on it too, how could I not? ;)

So if you would like a chance at winning this week's prize then why not play along? Don't forget that your card must feature a Tickled Pink stamp in order to qualify for the prize... these include: Lil Lolitas and Lads, Pinkettes, Pink Pets and Cherries. All of which can be found in the Tickled Pink store.

Have fun and good luck! :)

Hi Amy. Are you melting yet? It is so hot over here today that I don't even feel like swimming yet. lol... I am however getting ready for a nice ice cream cone then I'll be happy. I love your card and how you have used your feather paper and the feathers themselves. Just too cute! I hope you are having a wonderful day off and got a chance to jump in the lake. Hugs, Lisa
