Just because...

Good morning!

This card was super quick to put together and yet it is probably one of my recent personal faves. There is a light breeziness about it that appeals to me and my current longing for spring. I pulled out one of the super adorable pixies by Christy Croll that are sold by Stamping Bella and it was like saying hello to an old friend. As much as I love the new Wryn and friends characters at Tiddly Inks, Petunia Pixie here has me longing for some new pixies to flutter on the scene... especially with the addition of clear stamp sets at Tiddly Inks. So I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that my wish may come true sometime soon. :)

I've been using the heck out of that cloud paper from October Afternoon recently but I make no apologies for that, LOL! This time I paired it up with a bit of My Mind's Eye and a whole lot of Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic die cuts. That branch in particular was quite the find considering Petunia needed a place for her nest to call home. ;)

Alrighty, I'm audi... have a great one!

OMG this is Super Duper Cute!!!! Love the whole card!!! We got SNOW here in Tucson, AZ yesterday!!!! It is such a rarity here!!! It snowed 3 times!! I know no big deal to you but we live in the desert where you just done really see the stuff in person here. We can look at it on the mountains but I never venture toward the mountains. So to be able to see it in person and touch it was a real WOW factor for Brooke and I!!! Have a wonderful day doll!
hugs, Heidi & Brooke
