Sweet Little Melissa ~ MMSC46

Here is Melissa... she seems to be daydreaming about a beautiful Spring season, don't you think? I used lots of happy and bright colors this time because I was SO in the mood for Spring while I was working on this card over the weekend.... and would you believe we had SNOW here on the first day of Spring?! Our winter did not want to just go quietly! LOL!
Here is a closer picture showing the pretty swirls I die-cut using M5D Wood Paper. Love that stuff!!! I sure hope you all will come and play along with us at Midnight Madness this week. There is a lot of fun going on over there! And have you all heard about the fun Cruise we have planned for September? Be sure to check out all the details and help spread the word for your chance to win that cool CANDY too! :)
