Hey you...

Good morning!

Well, I'm still not 100% but compared to how I was feeling Saturday and Sunday I am doing much better. And lucky me, I still have today off to really get over this flu before heading back to work tomorrow. 

I wasn't really planning on making anything yesterday but by the afternoon I was bored and tired of pinning or watching TV. I ended up going into the crafty room only thinking that I would clean and organize for a bit but when I came across this Kraftin' Kimmie fairy sitting on my desk I just had to start coloring her up for a card. I'd actually stamped up Talullahbelle a week or so ago because I realized she was the lone KK fairy that had yet to get on a card and it was time to rectify that situation. The timing is also just right for me to enter this card into the open Flutter By challenge just under the wire. ;)
It feels good checking Talullahbelle off my list of stamps waiting for some love but I have to admit that now I'm kinda anxious to see some new KK fairies hit the scene. It's been a long time and I can't be the only one who thinks it would be great to see that line grow with some fun new characters. You know my fingers and toes are all crossed. :)

Okey dokey, take care my friends!

Hi Amy, I am happy to read that you are feeling a bit better. It really loves to hit hard and hang around for a bit. Take it easy today and get the extra little bit of rest before heading back to work. I love your card and I really love how you have used those flowers with your sweet fairy and those papers. Makes me feel like Spring just might be around the corner. :O) Have a great day. Hugs, Lisa
