Hello Everyone!!! I need to apologize for yesterday. I just woke up in a not so good mood and nothing really helped get me out of it.
Of course I did get some good news that should have helped. I am an aunt for the 6th time over. Hehehe, my goodness. I am really beginning to feel old. That doesn't even count my husbands nieces and nephews. I actually have a niece-in-law that is older than me hehehe, and older than my husband. Can you believe he was an uncle since before he was born?
My brother and his girlfriend welcomed a precious little girl into their family yesterday. I haven't yet been able to see pictures of her but I can't wait and sure she is just adorable.
Well, I promised some eye candy right? Thanks to Lauren, yes I know, totally obsessed. But she is just so talented. I found a up and coming company called SquiggleFly. The owner works with her daughter. It is her daughter that draws these amazing pictures. All of the images are digital. It kinda works like Lauren's templates. Pay for them, get the file, save it and then print to your hearts desire. What is nice is that with the download you get two sizes and mirror images. That doesn't limit you to size though. You can print them out to any size that fits your project.
SquiggleFly has a free download for you to try their images before you buy. How awesome is that? What did I do after visiting Lauren's blog the other day? I went straight to SquiggleFly's website and downloaded the free image. I wasn't sure what kind of image it would be but it was absolutely adoreable. A beautiful hummingbird getting some honeysuckle. I love it and saw so many images I would love to get. I saw a few that would work perfectly for my oldest nieces birthday next month (I cannot believe she is going to be 13, ackkk!!!)
So, there you have it for my card. Simple and elegant. I think it highlights the image beautifully. Interesting colors though if you ask me. Don't ask me how I managed to get these two colors together.
