Spring Chick

Have you ever had a tough time finishing a card? That's what happened here. No matter what I tried I couldn't find the right embellishment. I used flowers a post or two ago so I wanted something different. Buttons didn't look so hot. So I did what I could to salvage it? I just cut off the bottom portion of the card so I didn't have to fill in the void. So I guess you know my little secret. When my cards begin to get smaller its an attempt to prevent them from going in the trash. On a positive note I just love that Sarah Kay image. Don't you?

okey dokey...we will all be on the lookout now for shrinking cards!

ROFL...Don't we all do that...or are we a select few?

Love the final outcome though.
