A Warm Hello in Green

*See post below for Fairy Fun Fridays*

Good morning, my friends!  It's another week almost over.  I must say that this week has been quite productive for me.  My friend, Mandy would say it's probably because I've had waaaay too much sugar - lol!  Well, that's only partially correct : )  And it's partially correct because the lovely True gave me the biggest candy bar in her blog candy I received last week.  Do you think that I could have saved it?  Would you?  It was just sittin there, screaming at me - I HAD to eat it - hee hee!

I have a confession... I wasn't sure if I was going to like making this card.  I've seen some gorgeous creations with Sweet Pea stamps and they looked difficult.  I was a little intimidated... but as I began to color her, I saw the potential of what MY creation was supposed to be.  So, here's my version of a CAS (clean and simple) Sweet Pea stamp.  Many thanks to Lynette for supplying the Fussy and Fancy DT with these wonderful stamps!  I really DID have fun making this card : )

Copics Used:
Hair:  E99 E97 Y21 Y11
Dress:  G24 G21 G20
DP:  BasicGrey - Eskimo Kisses
CS:  Close to My Heart
Ribbon and pearls from stash
Sentiment:  Printworks
Stardust Stickles on her wings and dress

The challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday this week is 'Green'.  We'd love to see what you come up with.  Now head on over to the challenge blog and see the delish creations the DT has for you!

Thanks for visiting me!  You know how much I love to hear from you...  I'm finishing up more DT cards, then I'll be free to come see you too : )

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
