Happy Days..


Hi Peeps....

Well there's something about this little guys that really has my heart...  you gotta love them cos they make you smile!!  And because of that,  you'll be seeing a lot of them in the near future here on my blog..

My card today was inspired by the lovely Torico - who in actual fact is the illustrator for these images for My Favourite Things (such a talented lady) - I saw a wonderful MFT DT card by her using this colouring, and although you know that normally I steer well clear of yellow... this time it really looked right with the green and turquoise.  I've used a similar design to Torico also...  (being inspired by the best of course!) - although I have put my own spin on it... hope you like!
