Happy Galentine's Day...

Good morning!

I love the idea of taking the day before Valentine's Day and making it Galentine's Day. Celebrating the strong bonds of our female friendships is an important thing and what better time to do that than this season already dedicated to love? When I decided that I wanted to create a Galentine's Day card right away my mind went to the cute girls in the Frosty Mornings set from Hello Bluebird. Because I wanted to put them in a more urban setting I also grabbed the City Sidewalks set and added the taxi and lamp post to the scene. the little bird landing on the lamp post is from the Maverick set and I colored her pink to match the friends walking on the sidewalk below. Now I didn't have a sentiment specifically for Galentine's Day so I had to improvise. I found some tiny alpha stickers by Studio Calico that were the perfect size to spell out 'Galentine's' and I combined that with 'happy' and 'day' from the Just Sayin' stamp set. I'm so happy with how this one came together, it's pretty darn close to how I pictured it in my head.  :)

Hope your week is off to a great start and I will see ya tomorrow!
