Hi All!!  Sorry I have been missing for the last few days.  I have so busy trying to catch up from last week when I had such a busy crafting week and also take a brief break.  I have been feeling a little stressed lately.  The respite was indeed good for me.  Still lots of spring  cleaning to go...Only problem is, that it really is not spring here yet. LOL!  Snow, snow and more snow.....Please stop and go away.

I made this card when looking out the wintery weather on the outside....One can dream, right?  Yes, it would be nice to be watering my flowers.

I just love the bright and fun colors of the My Mind's Eye Tickled Pink pad which my dear friend Crystal sent to me in a RAK.  Isn't she the sweetest?!

The layout of my card uses the Sweet Stop sketch for this week.  The image is Ellie Loves to Garden from Your Next Stamp.  I colored the image with copics and sponged the clouds with a scalloped circle and my SU Baja Breeze ink.

Chris, it may be cold and snowing outside, but I can tell you have spring in your heart with this beautifully crafted card. That paper is so pretty and cheerful it should chase your "winter blues" away!!! Cute cute image on this too. I love the Sweet Shop sketches and you did a phenomenal job with it. Hope you finish your spring cleaning soon.
