Happy wishes

Hey all!

Thanks so much for the super sweet comments on my layout - makin' me wanna try another one. ;)

I made this card for this weeks Waltzingmouse sketch, and I was totally inspired by Savitri Wilders card. :)

I actually took the blue rose off of the ribbon after pictures...I can't decide if I like the card better with it, without it, or with the yellow rose....oh, all the agonizing decisions we papercrafters must make!

And then the butterflies...also notice that beautiful blue pearl? Hero Arts yummy-liciouness! Mmmm!

So, I've been thinking, should/do I need to write down instructions for the cards? Shabby cards like this kinda take awhile to explain, and just wondering if it's helpful to anybody.

Now I want to share some of my latest finds;
Why haven't I seen THIS before?!
THIS is a super cool idea - already sent some people that list! 
THIS song is the current most popular Christmas song around the house - we seriously listen to it, finish it, listen to it, finish it, on and on and on....getting a little old now. ;)
Yum! THIS is making my mouth water - gotta try the challenge and recipe!

Well, now that you've made it through this link-bogged post, congrats! ;)
Thanks for leaving the super sweet comments, and have an awesome day!
