Picnic Anyone?

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!

Your border still peeks out from the flowers!! This is definitely a spring time card!! The sun is shining here, currently no wind. Of course it is also 28 degrees right now (but a high of 56 is in the forcast!!) haha

So Spring, Glenda! It is definitely spring here even if we have some cooler weather. It was 72 degrees at midnight last night. The birds were up early and a red bird and a bluejay were picking bugs out of my newly dug garden and one of them had already snipped off portions of my bel pepper leaves! Have a wonderful day!
