Sweet Pixie

I used this sweet image from Pixie Dust Studios called "Autumn Grace".  I decided to color her in shades of pink.  The challenge at Pixie was to do a sweet baby card.  I chose a sentiment from a friendship set I got a long time ago that reads "The first man a little girl falls in love iwth is her dad."  I just love that saying.  I love my dad more than anything and it's so true!  I followed the sketch at Midnight Madness.  Loved it.  I added the little butterfly and a swirl stamp and then glittered it just to add some sparkles.  The papers are basic grey from one of my favorite collections, Eva.  I'm really trying to use my scraps to a little something the insides of all my cards as well. So here's what I did with this one.  I just used two pieces of scrap papers layered them and punched some tiny hearts then used the punched hearts to add a little design.  And nothin went in the trash!  Yay.

Don't forget that there is still time to enter the Hodge Podge Challenge.  You can find it here!  I have another post in the works but I'm having problems getting my pic's to upload.  Hopefully it will be up soon!

Thanks for stoppin by I read every one of your comments and they mean so much to me.  Especially since I can't get out and about!!
