Hello Spring

 Today we have it raining all day and I have large puddles all over my yard. The birds were playing in them and it was driving my cat crazy. I know we need the rain, but I want more sun and some warmer weather. I made this card at the beginning of the month, but just haven't had a chance to post it. It is using some dies that I have had and just not used.

Snowman friend Merry Christmas

 I colored this image a long time ago, but found it now when I was moving. I put it together at the beginning of the month, but didn't get a chance to post it until a few minutes before the sketch challenge closed, whew. I just wish that I had more time to play; however, work and my daughter's wedding planning is keeping me busy. I just love this image and didn't want to let it go to waste.

Bronte's Birthday

 I had this wonderful image by Mo Manning Bronte Birthday that I just had fun coloring. I haven't colored in such a long time, that I actually have done a few things that I had printed out that I found when I was moving.
