Spring is in the Air

Well....spring is in the air - the snow is melting, birds are singing and I actually heard and saw two geese fly overhead the other day. Gotta trust those birds.
And birds - oh my I love this little chick from Sugar Creek Hollow. She has such cute "googly" feet. I just have no other word for those wonderful little toes. She is part of an Easter Digi Special over at Sugar Creek Hollow! The Proverb at the bottom of the card is in the "Freebie" section of the website.

I've used the sketch put out by Corrosive Challenge this week. It gave me the opportunity to use a piece of designer paper that was bright and "loud" and I don't think I'd use this side of the paper ordinarily. But broken into strips it works well.











My second card is for the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast Sunday. The featured stamper was Vera and this is the card I copied. I changed the position of the card and the colours - but what caught my eye the most about Vera's card was the same striped paper going in different directions on top of each other. I thought it was pretty neat.

Well, I'm getting all tense getting my hand chime group ready for Music Festival next week. My husband is getting his bands ready for competition too. We're very happily married - and knew we were both in Education when we met - but two music teachers in the same household at certain times of the year - IS NUTS!!!!! But this too passes and we all move on to funner (?) things.

Hope all is relaxing and warmer in your area of the world - thanks for stopping by -
