Spring fever!

If you could see all the fun stuff that I've been creating recently, you would have NO doubt that I have a serious fever - spring fever, that is! I'm sure that I'm not alone with that affliction! Let's hope we all get our remedy soon!

That being said, I'm pulling out all sorts of springy colors and dainty little patterns and having a blast with them. This card sums that up perfectly, don't you think? The image is Delphinium & Peony from Lockhart Stamp Co. and is colored with Prismacolor pencils. I used Labels 3 from Spellbinders and topped it all off with a layer of Pixie Dust Blingz from Shimmerz. Wow - just look at the way it brought it life!

You probably also notice the stitching on the card...know what this means? My beloved sewing machine is off its death bed! I had made MANY attempts at taking the poor thing off life support in recent months, just to have my hopes dashed and dreams broken. One valiant last effort on Friday to resuscitate it was met with glorious success, and now I have my old friend back at my side, stronger than ever. :)

Be well.
