You are amazing...


So is everyone who sprung an hour forward yesterday feeling caught up yet? I have to admit that by the time Talking Dead came on at 10pm I was feeling pretty tired. But I powered through and managed to finish my show before falling asleep. Boy, does that make me a light weight or what? I guess the reality is that the crazy 1am and 2am nights of my youth are long gone, LOL! ;)

Anywho, yesterday I got an email for 20% off your purchase at the SOG store and since it has been ages since I got any of their digis I figured it was a good time to get a few off of my wish list and onto my computer. I printed out all my new SOG cuties but Sway Mae won out for being the first one I colored up. I love that she is just pretty and generic enough to work for a number of different card themes.
And since I had Mae ready to go I figured I might as well check out the March sketch challenge and see if it could help me finish the whole thing off. Since I printed out Mae on the larger side she was a bit too big to go on a horizontal card like the sketch but it was really easy to take the inspiration and make it work on my vertical card. The papers are new Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm and the floral print in the corner worked perfectly as the design element I needed behind the banner in the sketch... doesn't get much easier than that! 
If that wasn't enough, I'm also entering this into the Oozak challenge which is spring themed cards. I figured Mae looks like she is walking through a beautiful spring garden enjoying some sunshine in her flirty new dress, so why not?

Well, it's time for me do go do the ol' hair and make up thing. Have a good one everybody! :)
