Kindness Inspires

Happy Monday friends!!  Hopefully you all had an awesome weekend and stayed cool in the process.  We've had over a 100 degree days here in Jersey - with the humidity so thick you could cut it with a knife!  Thankfully, it seems like today will only reach about 85 and you can actually walk outside without hitting a brick wall!

Anyway, on to my card for today!  I've been a Tiddly Inks virgin, but not anymore ;)   I can't tell you how much fun I had making this - I just love these colors together, and managed to find scraps of one of my favorite papers that I've had forever that I've been refusing to part with ;) 

So here is Poppy - isn't she precious?!  She's part of the Goth line over at Tiddly Inks and the sentiment is from TLC.  I went a touch distress-happy with my Cranberry Colorbox Pigment Ink, and as you can see - I made a mess.  Remind me never to do THAT again!  I think it kinda adds a little sumthin', sumthin' to the card ;)

Hope you all have a fabulous start to your week and, as always, thanks for leaving me some love - it always brightens my day!
