A great day

Mornin'!

It's shaping up to be another beautiful day here, not too hot but lots of sunshine. I'll be working through most of it but I've still got some plans to chill afterwards. ;)

I couldn't resist playing with another one of the cute Pixies by Christy Croll but this time I went for a completely different kind of vibe on the card. This little sweetie is moonlighting as a wood sprite while she hangs out with all her forest friends. I had originally pictured using this line of papers for more guy type cards but I think it makes for a fun alternative from my usual girly colors too.

Ok, quick, quick, quick since I've really got to get moving... thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day! :)

Amy this is just adorable! I love the papers with your fairy and the bear button is just perfect with the rope bow. Love it! I hope you have a great day at work and get a chance to enjoy the nice weather. We are going to get to 93 today at 5pm. WOW, guess where the M&Ms want to be? I am hoping to get some cards made before then. :O) Hugs, Lisa
