Tall and Thin

Hello my fellow crafters! :)

I meant to post this card this morning but I was out the house really early and didn't get home until sun down. I took a day off from work and spend most of today at the salon (close to 6 hours to be exactly). I have natural curls and I need to straighten my hair every year. It has been well over a year and half since I last did it. My hair was so fluffy that I had to put it up everyday. So today I finally got it done again and now it's super FLAT. It will take a couple of weeks before it looks natural. Anyway...

I made this card over the weekend. I don't make this card size often and since In Style's challenge was to make one, why not. I actually like it because it's different. It fits in a legal size envelope. I am very please with the color combo as well, with The Corrosive calls for. I don't make a lot of Thinking of You cards either but Stampin' Sisters in Christ's theme is just that this week so here it is! :) Next, Danni's Flutterby Wednesday, fairy/butterfly along with flowers. Okay, a couple more challenges: Artful Inkable and Creative Card Crew both ask for something sparkly.

Wow! that's a neat one... i don't thinking i'm gutsy to do a tall n thin... maybe cause it's hard to find envelopes here... LOL... love the colors you used and the image is so sweet! btw, i just love your sprout! you definitely have my vote! so chic sassy! =D hugs, Kris

great card, love the bright colours.

6 hours in the salon - I'd have been climbing the walls, must be worth it though if it lasts you a year.I have naturally horrible hair - do you think they could cure me lol!

Woah! 6 hours! My hair is awful, it's half straight, half wavy.

But my youngest daughter has curls and I don't know really how to take care of them, her hair is always frizzing up on hot days... so I just pull it back into a ponytail. We're hoping it straightens out as she gets older... lol

Your card came out Great!

Hi KIM!! :) How are ya?!! Well, you've been busy creating, that's for sure. What a super CUTE card!! I love your bright fun colors and that sweet fairy!! It's fun to break out of the normal card size and try things like tall cards huh? It's been quite a while since I've made one of those.

Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges this week!! =0)

Very pretty! I love that size card and don't do them often, either, but it's nice to do something different for a change. Thanks for playing the AI challenge!
