3 Times the Goodness!

I have absolutely fallen in love with the images from Michelle Perkett. They are SO wonderful, and whimsical, and fun! And they have excellent sentiments available with them, too. This weekend my daughter and I sat down for crafty time, and she wanted to color a mermaid like I was (more on that later!). I saw this image recently, and had to have it immediately!!! What an amazing quote from Maya Angelou. I left the card pretty simple, using some Pixie-licious paper and buttons from Cosmo Cricket.
I also made this sweet little dragonfly for a friend. I paired it with Basic Grey Olivia paper. The dragonfly is done twice - once on the base, and again on scratch paper, fussy cut, and then adhered by its body. I curled the wings, to give it some dimension.
See how it looks from the side? This one is simple too - because I'm putting it in the mail, and it'll already cost more since it is square! And now for my daughter's amazing creation:
HOW sweet is that??? She picked out the colors on her own, and asked me to turn it into a card for her. So she ended up with a 4 1/4" notecard, with just the right amount of sparkle and bling. I just think it is so stinkin' adorable!
