Just A Friendly Note

Hooray for Saturday! Working every other weekend sure has it's ups and downs, but having 2 days off in a row is the best part! It's when I truly get to relax and do whatever I want! Unfortunately doing what I want will be somewhat limited this weekend, since we have 2 birthday parties to go to today & tomorrow we are going to the St. Patty's Day parade downtown. I will still make time to play with my stamps though! I've got lots to do in that department!

This Cutie Pie card is one I whipped up after work last night. Isn't she sweet? This image is called Springtime Helper and is one of the new releases from DRS Designs.



I colored her with pencils and blended the colors with Gamsol. Then I sponged blue in k for the sky and green ink for the grass around her feet. The sentiment is also from DRS Designs--I love the font!
