CDB Fairy Sweet

When playing last night I also made this sweet little card. I don't make many cards appropriate for young girls as I have all boys in the family (nephews, godsons). However, it was fun to play with the girlie colors and embellies. This stamps comes from a set called Make a Wish by Rita Marie and available from Creative Design Boutique. Isn't she one stylin' little fairy!!! The designer paper is also by Rita Marie.

I had a wonderful afternoon/evening today. As many of you know I LOVE the ocean and the peace I find there. Well today I went to a friend's picnic which was held at a rented cottage at Groton Long Point. For those of you not from our area, that is an area on Long Island Sound along the Connecticut coast. Wow....was that ever what I needed. Besides great company and mounds of food, the view was just gorgeous. Sailboats floated by, the sounds of little ones traveled over the water from the nearby beach, seagulls flying overhead, and the wondrous, majestic sight of the waters. Ah.....so relaxing. Add in some warm sunshine and a cool breeze and.....well....it was a little bit of heaven here on Earth!!

Hope you had a great day too!!!

The scene you've described sounds heavenly to me, too! There's nothing like the peace and tranquility of the water.

So sweet and feminine!!

On my Prima that you asked about, I cut it off. Not sure I like it that way, but I had seen that somewhere and wanted to try it.
