An 'out of the box' swingy thingy!

Hi there, I was intending to be back here a little sooner, but I've been a little busy at work, so good intentions disappeared. Oh well, at least I made it before the week was out......hopefully I'll be back again tomorrow.

I hope all my Canadian friends had a Happy Thanksgiving. We are far too English to celebrate, but we did make the effort and go to the parade at least.

I have a sweet little card for you today, and yes, I've gone 'out of the box'.........or at least 'outside the Nestie'! Here's a little reminder to enjoy life's simple pleasures.................

Doesn't this make you want to run to the nearest swing and kick your legs out as high as you can go? Well maybe I'll just reach for my coffee instead!

So here's Gillian again, from Prairie Fairy Designs but this time I felt she needed to be a redhead. She's coloured with Copic's and papers are from My Minds Eye. I used my Martha Stewart punch to create the butterflies............

added a little bling, ribbon and a button and we're done. The sentiment is a $1.50 rubber stamp from Michael's.

Don't you just love Glossy Accents?

Don't know what I'd do without them.

I'll leave you with one more image of Gillian, as I seem to have gone from not remembering to take any close-ups at all, to going completely overboard!

Almost forgot.....the LO for this card is inspired by the current sketch challenge over at Pink Ink Sketch Challenges.

Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow

Awesome sentiment, I'm gonna have to track that one down at Michael's.

Love this image, she is adorable. I would love to jump in a swing, although it hurts your butt a lot more then I remember it doing as a kid. ;D
