Just Chillin!

Hey friends,

Up here at the cottage for March break just chillin out!  I love not having a timetable and just taking whatever comes are way and deal with as it may!  My husband has always been the planner, where I like to 'fly by the seat of my pants.'  I have to say that since having children I now plan more than I ever did before!  So when we get times like these, where anything goes I am reminded of the more carefree times that I enjoyed so much!  I made this card to suit occasions such as this! I have entered it in Crafty Sentiments Designs - Things with Wings.

This little cutie is a Swiss Pixie stamp that I inked up with memento and stamped on neenah cardstock and then coloured with copics.  I used my SB die to mat the image and a Sizzix corner die in the left corner.  The lacey border is a punch by Stampin Up and the I dry embossed the red cardstock with my CB folder.  Lots of red and yellow jewels and some stickles for her wings.  The flowers were put together from different Recollection packs.   I tied it all together with a satin yellow bow!

Can't wait for the days where we're just chillin on the dock under the beaming sun!  Until then I'll take this weather in March any day!  Thanks for stopping by!
