Wishing You A Day Full of Happiness

Hi everyone, and hope you are having a great weekend.

I don't normally go much on pre-coloured images and toppers, but i thought I would buy a pack from the new LotV release (as well as my new paper pads!)  to have in "in case of emergencies" lol! 

I think this new pack of images of "James and Jenny bear" is just sooo cute (so cute in fact that I actually have the stamps for two of the images in there!!), so I decided to have a dabble. The one thing it didn't result in though is a "quick card", as I spent som uch time lovingly faffing about with my background and embellishments that the card took every bit as long as one normally does! 

Anyhow, this is what I made ...

Papers: Maja Designs;
Supplies: LotV topper from Art Pad 23 "James & Jenny Bear"; sentiment from Art pad 8 "Sentiments; pearls from The Hobby House; cheesecloth from The Ribbon Girl; ribbon, lace and large pearl brad from my stash;
Tools: "Floral ovals" nestabilities; Joycrafts butterfly die.
