All Occasion Card Using Sweet Pea Spring Fairy

Hi friends.  It is a beautiful sunny day in Southern CA.  We finally got rain last night and snow in the mountains.  Yeah!  We actually had thunderstorms with lightning.  That rarely happens here in Southern CA.   I remember when I lived in Florida; that it rained every day; and I hated that.  Now, I look forward to the rain and the storms; because we rarely have it here.  I guess we are never happy with our current weather.  LOL!

I just finished my last card that I am going to have time to finish before vacation.  I have a lot to do; so I am stopping with this one.  I have several progressive challenges that I love to participate in each month; so it is hard not to do them.  I ran out of time and I don't want the pressure.  

I created this card with the adorable Sweet Pea Spring Fairy.  Isn't she gorgeous!!  I just love this image.  I found this beautiful paper with a garden scene in my stash; and just had to use it. I love all the gorgeous flowers on here.  My picture didn't turn out as well as I had hoped; but these shades of pink don't photograph very well.  Her dress is pink, not red; just in case you can't tell.  LOL!
