A Pedicure Would Hit the Spot!

It's finally Saturday morning around here! Kinda overcast and SUPER WINDY! March is roaring and spring is in FULL BLOOM! All the trees have buds on them. I looked out the kitchen window earlier in the week and couldn't believe that my peach tree had tiny pink flowers on it. I love it when the trees flower - it's my favorite part of spring!!

I made another card last night using one of the charms from the new charm bracelet set at Pink Papery Studios. It's a digital stamp so you can buy it, download it and stamp with it all in the same day and without having to leave the house!

Each of the charms can be used alone to create hang tags in whatever size you need as they are totally re-sizable! It seems like all the pedicure places around here have an Asian flare to them so it was a great chance to use the Haiku paper from Stampin Up that I've had for months and didn't know what to do with. The sketch is #6 from the Inspirational Card Sketches blog. Dawn is the owner of this sketch blog and they are really phenomenal. She always awes me with her scrapbook pages and almost every single one gets "starred" in my reader. I'm not much of a scrapper so am always on the lookout for pages to CASE. She's also really great at making scrappy cards - and her team is out of the world too! You should check it out - there is a prize this week!

I paper pieced the spa chair and covered her turban and robe in fun flock. The tub was colored bronze with a metallic colored pencil and then painted with Coffee Bean Shimmer It and the bubbles have Pixie Shimmer It. I stamped the tag and then colored it in with a silver Galaxy Marker. I did this about 11 p.m. last night and I can really see in this photo that I must get an OTT-Light again soon!
Have a beautiful Saturday! I'm off to read to the little man for a bit and will also probably end up playing cars - oh the life of a mom with a son!
