A Pixie Challenge and Wild Flowers Release!!!

Good morning everyone!
We're all excited for today's Pixie Dust Studio's New Release!!! 

First, here's Pixie's story ;)
Now it's time to meet the...
Wild Flowers

Aren't they the cutest bunch you've ever seen?!

I have 2 projects to share with you right now :)
Oh! and both of my creations have also been inspired by the following challenges :)
ABC Challenge - N is for New (new DCWV paper pad!)
Cupcake Craft Challenge 76 - Four Legged and Furry
Dutch Dare Card Challenge #70 - Summer in Winter
Pile It On Challenge #4 - Enough of Winter Colors
Practical Scrappers - Die Cuts (I used my Slice to create my flowers!)

First up is my card using "Zeeba the Zebra"!

Welllll, I decided to follow Pixie's footsteps and found this sunshine-y lil zebra sitting in the flower fields!
Isn't she adorable?!
Long story short - went to Michael's the other day for some adhesive... walked out with DCWV's Songbird paper pad too, lol! I don't usually do 12x12 pads - but look at these colors! They just sang to me ;)

Oh, and lookie here :) I made up the inside too!

I also used my Slice to make the lil flowers!

Zeeba Card Details:
Paper(s): DCWV Songbird DP; Bazzill CS
Ink(s): Copic Markers; Atyou Spica Glitter Pens - Orange and Lime
Accessories: Making Memories Slice - Animal Crackers Cartridge Button Flowers; May Arts Ribbon; Martha Stewart Border Punch

Next, I created an 8x8 layout using "Flip the Monkey" and "Safari Wink"...

I was going through our pics from when we first moved into our new place and a few pics of my 2 lil monkey's having a good time making silly faces :)

Who could resist putting this together?! ;)
Just Goofing Layout Details:
Paper(s): DCWV Songbird DP; Bazzill CS
Ink(s): Copic Markers
