I'm back!

Hello!!!  I'm back.  I've been on vacation for a week... in deepest darkest Wales with no phone, internet or TV.  PROPER relaxation.
So I am thrilled to see all the entries for my giveaway - and look - 600 followers today.  Amazing. :)
Here is a card I made with some FABULOUS new digikits by Vinnie Pearce.  Oh how I love her.
The beautiful bird is from THIS kit, and the gorgeous background paper from THIS kit (Look... they're on sale!!!).  The sentiment is from THIS Hero Arts set.
Blue Bird
Happy Weekend to you all and thanks for always leaving such sweet messages and always making me smile.

I'm glad you had a nice vacation. As a teacher I can appreciate the importance of that recharge time =) I love this bird on the string. So clever. That background paper may just be the lure that makes me finally try some digital images.
