Thank You Card Using Aurora Wings Crocus Sprite

Hello friends.  How is everyone doing?  I think Southern CA is going to have a few days without rain.  Can you believe that?  LOL!  

I have been having fun reorganizing and making room for my fabulous Workspace Wonder organizational pieces from Close To My Heart.  I didn't think I could find room for them; since the pictures all show them put together with the Paper trays.  I realized I could move the paper trays to a different location (as they are 12 x 12); but keep all the other pieces on my desk.  

The large tray is my base and it is only 8 inches from the back on my work table. It has worked out great!  I have one complete set; then several from another purchase; plus I am getting ready to buy another set.  It is amazing to have everything I want right in front of me on my crafting table in a nice organized set; rather than the assorted plastic containers I had previously.  My crafting table feels so much cleaner and more organized.  

I think it helped my creating Mojo; because I seem to have a lot of it now; where before I felt I had lost it.  I just bought 13 new digis from Aurora Wings; as she has a 30% off sale; which ends tonight.  I own  many of Mitzi's digis; but just haven't had the time to create with them.  

I had to share this one right now.  I am using Aurora Wings Crocus Sprite.  I think she is the sweetest little thing ever!  The link is for the PNG version; but there is also a JPEG version.  I try to get PNG; so that I can use my print and cut feature on my Cricut Explore; and use it with digi papers if I want to.

Path of Positivity Challenge - Is Expression of Love.  This card is saying Thank you and expressing to someone that I care and appreciate them for being so kind.
