You’re a Real Wing Dinger!

geethanks 

Good morning!!  I spent my last day of Spring Break making cards, doing laundry and watching the World’s Curling tournament :)  I played around with this week’s Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and am happy with what came out on this card :)  I wasn’t sure about the 2 side squares so I went out of the box and had some fun with the large corrugated flower and bow!!  I flipped through my Labels sets and picked out the Number 5 stamps then found the perfect Back in the Saddle sentiment to fit!  I told you I am not finished with this set, not for a long while yet!  So what is a “wing dinger?”  Well, I’m the daughter of a cowboy so this phrase was not new to me.  According to the Urban Dictionary it means "sweet!" It's Irish of origin, referring to fairies that flew around with bells and were indentified with good luck. It is widely thought the wing dingers were the inspiration for Disney's Tinkerbell. Okay, so we’ve had Cowboy Glam and Cowboy Shabby…now we have Cowboy Pretty!  Thanks for stopping by and hope your week is starting out well :)
