ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, February 3, 2015
Hello Friends!!  Winter is just beginning and I am already looking forward to spring, warmth and flowers.  We have not even had snow yet... LOL!

To get part of my fix, I decided to stamp and color flowers since I can't see them outside or pick them.

I created this card for the color challenge at the ODBD Shining the Light.

I had a good time playing with my copics!!  I have had such little time for it lately as I try to diet and exercise, go to PT, home school my girls, and etc.!!
