  1. I love Doodle Pantry and this image is soooo cute. What a sentiment for this image. Cute, cute, cute. I love flamingos too - my Mom even still has fake ones in her yard (as a joke but I think she secretly doesn't think of them as a joke and really loves them). Hugz!

  2. Awesome card Elizabeth. I love the pinwheel. I haven't tried my hand at those yet, but I will...they are way too cute. I love the designer paper you used on this card too. Very pretty. And your bling in the feathers are the bomb!

  3. So cute - I have to print this one off today and play - love the pinwheel too.
