Wish I could see you...

Good morning!

I hope your weekend has been a wonderful one. The sun has been shining here but that doesn't mean it has been warm... on the contrary, it's been freezin' when that wind decides to blow. So even though I am hoping that sweater weather will soon be behind us I won't be packing up the winter clothes just yet. ;)

I think my longing for spring is pretty evident in today's card what with all the yummy colors, flowers and butterfly. I wish I could step in and play peek-a-boo with this little sweetie! ;)
This is a just for fun, using new stamps and new papers kind of card. Isn't this new Pure Innocence girlie just adorable? And the paper is the new Stella and Rose line from My Mind's Eye. OMGosh, I gotta say that I have been a looooong time fan of MME... my love affair began with their original Wild Asparagus line... but this new release totally speaks to me. And the best part of all? They have done this line in the small 6x6 size too! The patterns are shrunk down AND they are double sided, which is something I haven't seen anyone else do yet, so you know that made this paper junkie/card-making fool's little heart go pitter pat. LOL

Well, that's all I've got for today... thanks for stopping by and listening to my crazy paper excitement. I know more than a few of you out there can totally relate. ;)
