Hello there...

Hello, hello!

Can you believe that in my neck of the woods the first day of spring was ushered in with snow and rain? I couldn't believe it... I woke up yesterday and the ground was covered in a thin layer of snow! Mother Nature must be a bit confused because I've already got crocus and daffodils coming up in the flower beds. At least the rain that followed helped to make it disappear, now I just hope it warms back up again. So did anyone out there actually get a beautiful first day of spring?

My card today sure has the colors and brightness that I'm wishing for. I colored up Drozy's Darling Fairy Watering from the ATS March release and fussy cut her out so that it would be easy to create a little scene with her. The papers are Bella Blvd scraps that have been hanging around... if you haven't guessed yet, I can never resist a good cloud print paper. ;)
I colored her up nice and vibrant to match and kept the embellishing to a minimum since the prints were so busy. It's a pretty simple card but I think it turned out cute enough. :)

Alrighty, time to get ready for work. Later gators!

Super cute card! That Bella Blvd cloud paper is one of my most hoarded papers - not meaning I have lots of it, but it is one I am most reluctant to cut into because I love it so much! I love seeing it on your gorgeous card!
I have had cold weather all this week, barely mid 30's. I left Alaska but can't get away from the cold!:)Traci
