Spring Chickie

Happy Sunday, the weekend is flying by as usual. Earlier this week I saw this sort of center step card on my blogging buddy Kendra's blog. Loved her card so much I decided to try one of my own. Super easy and really cute!

This image is Spring Chickie from Whimsy and Stars. Love her fun get up! She is just full of style with her dress, leggings and hat, love it! I was going for bright and cheerful here (lol, in case the colors didn't give that away). I'm planning to pop this one in the mail on Monday to my Chemo Angel woman. Hope it will bring her a bit of sunshine.

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
