A happy hello


I'm rushin' around like a crazy person this morning as I wound up sleeping in too long... yipes!
So quickly, quickly let me share my card for the day.
Yesterday was busy and I didn't have a whole lot of time to spend in the crafty room. When I finally got in there to relax a bit the Pure Innocence stamps where calling me. So I flipped through their binder until this little cutie caught my eye and since she hadn't been inked up yet, this seemed the perfect opportunity to get her on a card.
I started coloring her up without any firm direction in mind for the card but when I grabbed a scrap of paper and found this fun map print on the backside of it, I suddenly saw her enjoying a day hike adventure. The scene was set and the whole thing came together super fast after that. Is it any surprise that I love pattern papers almost as much as stamping? :)

Ok, I've really got to scoot my boot now!
