Spring Is Here

Spring is here and I didn't miss it and even the the weather was very agreeable with a nice 72 degrees.  The day was perfect with the exception that I sat inside a building looking out my window watching the squirrels play and run around.  Spring was finally here and although I do love Spring, my allergies were in full force and for once I didn't mind.  Then of course as we say in Texas just give it a day and change will come.  And change it did...the temperature dropped to the mid 40s and I think the birds went into hibernation.  It was nice while it lasted and it will come around again.

My inspiration for my card was seeing all the decorations in the stores for Easter with the yellows and bright colors.  You can't help but be happy with such warm colors, and there are a lot of challenges out there with themes of Easter and Spring so I think my card is perfect for these challenges.  I had fun  creating this card and coloring this adorable image.

My card recipe:
DP: My Minds Eye "Breeze"
CS:  Bazzill Mustard Yellow
Image: Elisabeth Bell Digis
Flowers: Wild Orchid
MS: Butterfly Punch and Lace
Spellbinders: Grand Classic Oval and Grand Scalloped Oval
Marianne Dies: Leaves and Flourish
Recollections: Bling

I added Stickles to her headband and the petals of the roses as well as the butterfly wings.

The image was colored using the following copic markers:
Skin - E00, E11
Hair - E31, E35, E47
Clothes - Y26, Y21, Y23, W3, W1, W00
Water and Grass - B00, B60, C1, BG96, BG93

The inside of the card looks like this.  The sentiment on the front and quote on the inside of the card were both computer generated.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:

My Creative Moments- Springtime
2 Sisters Challenge Blog - Challenge #136 Easter/Springtime
Paper Creator's Crafts - Challenge#6 Spring Has Sprung
One Stop Craft Challenge - Recipe Challenge
Sweet Stamps - Lots of Layers
Lady Anne's Sentimental Friday - Challenge #7 Anything Goes
A Gem of A Challenge - Challenge #72 On the Move

Tomorrow is supposed to bring back the Spring like temperatures and the sun is supposed to rise early in the morning.  I am so looking forward to those days and while I may not be able to enjoy all of them, I will enjoy the ones I am blessed to have.  Here are a few words for thought.

Maybe God 
put Easter in the Spring
to remind us that he makes 
miraculous things happen 
when we do nothing more
than open ourselves up to him.

Where ever you are I hope your evening is peaceful and full of the beauty that surrounds us every day for free.  Breathe the beauty in and release it with your creativity in crafting.

Thanks for stopping by
