Just Sittin' Here

Good morning!

I'm enjoying this beautiful day, and hope that you are, as well.  On a little hike around the yard with the dogs today, I realized that nearly overnight, our Bradford Pear trees are all beginning to flower.  They are so pretty!  I'll share a photo tomorrow or Thursday after a few more blooms appear.

Today's share is a fun card.  The day is so bright and cheerful, that this card had to be cheerful too.  Hope little Heidi gives you a smile.  This is for a brand new challenge, "Sweet Stamping Pixies".  The theme is "Spring", and you must use a Pixie, Sprite, or Fairy on your card.

Designs "Leafy Branch" Die, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Pink Sharpie Marker, Copic Markers, Amy R. Stamps "Wish You Were Here" Sentiment, Recollections Dimensional Squares, White Vision Pen, Diamond Stickles

Inisde of Card
So, hurry into your stash, and find a sprite, fairy, or pixie, and get creative!  You have lots of time to get into the very first challenge at Sweet Stamping Pixies!

What a cute card PattiJ!! I had to click through to see what you made because as I'm linking my card to all my challenges I'm entering I see your link just before mine! LOL. In fact all 8 of the challenges you are entering I had in my list also. Funny--small world! :) That's so neat that you have a bunch of pear trees. I LOVE fresh pears and would be fun to have my own trees. Unfortunately I live in high desert where nothing grows! I have the worst luck with anything I plant :(
