Spring is here! ..... ?

I sure hope so! It's still pretty cold even with the temperature wavering in the 40's. Audrey and I have been going out for short walks through the parks everyday. I bundle her up really warm and then we set off to look for signs of Spring. Her favorite is spotting squirrels gathering their acorns and of course the little birds fluttering by. We stay away from pigeons, yuck.

I'm not much of a Spring time card person -- maybe because I didn't start this hobby until after the Summer, so I missed the season entirely. You just have to think bright, pretty colors, right?

I had a hard time staying away from my brown. :(

Another try, think PASTELS! This was a bit of a pain to do with masking, but I like the results.

  15. for some reason I can't see all of the photos, but I do love the first card that I can see. believe you me, if you lived in northeast Ohio you would know that spring is all about brown with snow still falling and then melting. ;) wink, wink, wink!!! I happen to love the colors you used, so be content with what you have created - it is gorgeous!
