Brighter Days and a Fun Announcement

This is a quick, cute little 4.25" square card I made for a friend who is going through some changes and rough times in her life.  I always think I have to make this "wow" card before I can send anything, and really, people just want to know you are thinking of them.

I wanted to use bright papers to go with the awesome word art from TLC Creations. This digi image was a freebie at Create With TLC -- if you haven't been to Paulette's blog, and you like digital art, you really need to make a visit. 
I am also excited to announce that Paulette has asked me to be part of her Design Team April-June! I am very excited, as I love her work. Next week I will show you some of the things I have been working on for the team.

Today I am off on a little shopping excursion and trip to the zoo (I like going when the weather is not so great - the animals are active and there are few people!) - just for me! Thanks for stopping by today!

Challenges for this card: 
SCS Inspiration Challenge - this necklace inspired me 
Fun With Shapes and More - die cut and no DP
Guylou's Inimitability - dots
Tellen's Place - texture
Aud Sentiments - Get Well


Stamps: Digi sentiment by TLC Creations
