Its coming

We have had a mild winter, but now we are going to be getting some snow just when we are ready for winter to be over.  I think we are expected to get about an inch or so this afternoon and possibly upto three to four by tomorrow morning.  I have to work tonight so I don't look forward to driving in during all that since they don't like to clear the roads until it stops.  It will be interesting to see how it all works out since the weather forecasters can be wrong so often.

I made a couple cards that have more of a pastel - spring like feel to them.  The first one is a birthday card using Torico's new cupcake image.  She has several different cupcakes on Birdie Brown.  Then I did an Easter card using Karen Middleton's cat with an egg.  I used the colors from the Color Create Challenge which worked well for this card.  My last card is using Bugaboo's sock Monkey image which works perfectly for this weeks Cupcake Inspiration Challenge.
