All Aflutter

How is everyone on this fine Thursday? The sun is beaming, the trees are budding, the birds are tweeting ... it's a great day! Plus tomorrow is FRIDAY. Can I get a *woot-woot*!!! *snicker*

Today, we have a splendid CAS card to share with you and also a sneak peek at a new pack called Happy Thoughts. The idea for the new pack came from a customer request for a pack of thinking of you/encouragement cards. We love it when our customers ask us to design packs for them b/c it lets us know what occasions we have not met for them yet. And it's all about the customer, after all!

Whitney did a fantastic job on this one, IMHO! The colors were straight from this week's CR84FN Color Challenge. They lent themselves perfectly to this cheery encouragement card. The stamps are from Verve, and we were inspired to pull them out and give them some love with the March Diva's Inspiration Blog Hop and Verve Fan Hop.


If you were feeling a little down and out, wouldn't you love to receive this card in the mail? I know I sure would! Clean and simple and full of lots of cheer.

Thanks for fluttering by today! We hope you've enjoyed your layover!
