    Magic is Within Reach with Genie Gwen

    I’ve finally been finding time to get crafty (don’t count the last two weeks though with the sick then the catch-up from said sick) and am getting back in a creating groove.

    A Spring Fling?

    I’m still courting Spring over here. We’ve been in the upper 30s/low 40s here which is no-coat-just-long-sleeve-weather if you’re a Michigander, this card is the feeling I have for Spring. For it I used the Digital Stamp Hand Holding Mae and Kody from Some Odd Girl stamps. Yeah, I want to hold its hand in bright colors and pink hearts. Sorry Winter, it was never serious between us  XD I’m also entering this card into the Paper Issues Tip Toe Thru the Tulips linky party going on NOW.
