Pixie Cottage...Guest Sketch & Family Theme

This is my second post for today, click here for All That Scraps Lace Challenge.


Hello and Happy Wednesday!

I can't believe that a week has passed by already and that I haven't posted a card but I promise to get better. My kids start school next Tuesday and I couldn't be happier...seriously! I am soooooo looking forward to my quiet mornings again....just me and my computer and cards. I can imagine the bliss already! lol

For this weeks Pixie Cottage family theme, I used the whimsical and adorable Baby Maisy as my main image. The design papers are by Die Cuts With A View and I love the feminine color combination of pink and green. I could have fussed a bit and add a lot of embellishments but I kept my card pretty clean and only added some flowers,half back pearls and ribbon.


As with all of The Pixie Cottage Challenges, you have options. You can either make a card according to the weekly sketch or you can make a card based off of the theme. This weeks Guest designer is Cindy Haffner. Thanks for the sketch and inspiration Cindy! We hope that you enjoy this weeks sketch and theme and we hope that you have fun with the challenge!
