I *HEART* you!

I really do! Do you know why? Because I know that you love this paper as much as I do! Oh, joyful polka dots! I'm in love! So, as excited as I am, thinking Fall, I don't mind taking a mental break from that for a moment, to think a lil' bit Spring! {Lol!} I could barely stand to part with it, but *sigh*, I did! See:

I'm tempted to make up a song to the tune of Muskrat Love... but I'll spare you this time! (HeeHee)

I got busy with this lovely sketch from the talented super crafty gals from Get Sketchy! Look here!

I am pretty excited to toss another into the mix with the Get Sketchy gurus! Their samples are "to die for," GORGEOUS! And, what a hoot: I was soooooooo honored to have my card considered in their TOP 5 from the last sketch! Lots of love to give and share: it's all good fun, babies! {The kind of goodness to help us forget our troubles and BE HAPPY!}

Such happy lil' friends! This is how I feel about my delightful blog friends! All swoony and heart poppin' happy joy when I think about you's... all-o-you'ds! {How U doin'?} ANYWHOO, I don't know if you can see the central, oval image ~ floating! Ain't that fun! I was having such trauma slicing into this paper! So when I decided to follow this sketch, I decided to REMOVE the circle, rather than just cover it! THEN, I'll still be able to use that sweet lil' scrap! I sandwiched some transparency material between the card stock base and this beautiful designer paper to create light and interest in the center image, but not over shadow the happy little squirrels... {Don't you JUST love finding the right material for the job!} Because I'm never too confident with simplicity, and in CASE you missed the two squirrels on the FRONT of the card {hee hee} I put some inside, too!

So, WHEW! That was fun! I hope you can work some Get Sketchy into your week:
what a great design! I sure appreciate you wandering through my lil' forest today!
I hope everything is coming up roses for you!
