As you can see, my thoughts are turning toward Spring. It's kinda hard not to as we are at 61 degrees and the wind is whipping and there is a possibility of severe thunderstorms predicted for the Tennessee Valley today! I know you didn't visit for a weather forecast but it's definitely on my mind this morning. I am so ready for Spring; but deep down inside, I know Winter isn't finished with us just yet! Mother Nature is a tease!
I want to share a little card I finished a couple of days ago...the image is a Sarah Kay image that I just love and this little girl so reminds me of warm weather. I colored her with distress inks and mounted her onto papers out of my stash. I used a Martha Stewart Punch for the border and then quickly covered it with the image and the flowers. I don't know why I do that when I do so love the look of the borders, but it just seems to happen. My flowers are from Wild Orchid and I love them. They are so easy to color to match your card...I always buy white and then color them with distress inks. The leaves are also from Wild Orchid and I used shimmer paint to add a little hi-light to them. I wasn't sure if I liked the look or not, but I think I do. What do you think? I hope you like her.
Well I am off for another cup of coffee and some visits to other blogs. I hope your day is a good one and remember to spend a little time just for you!
