SC Windy Day

Happy Saturday my stamping friends.  Hope this post finds you well and enjoying some healthy creative time.  At least I find it to be healing and calming.  I'm really getting back to enjoying creating my cards again.  Soooo... I've just popped in to share another with you.  It's another Saturated Canary image... Windy Day.

I finished this a few days ago and am just now getting around to posting.  Unfortunately, my mom's currently in the hospital so my days have been busy visiting her and worrying when I'm not there.  She's doing better, so the stress is somewhat lessened and I'm grateful for that!!  I haven't colored for a few days, but think getting some 'color time' will help me stay calm and sane!!

Thank heavens for such cute images like this little gal that help me and so many of us get our minds off our busy lives or our troubles.  These are my fave colors and was soooo fun to put together.  For the 'matting' I took three Prima Bright flowers, glued them together and attached my sentiment to them.  I missed dead center, but I like the result.  Gives extra texture and just looks cute (I think).
