Think Spring

Hello and happy Thursday!  Have you been having nice weather?  It's been beautiful here.  I actually think we broke the record high yesterday ... yeah!  It feels like June rather than March but I'm not complaining.  It's suppose to start cooling down in a day or two so I'm enjoying this gorgeous weather while I can ;) 

Today I made a card for a good friend.  She has a lot going on in her life right now and I thought this adorable image from Sassy Cheryl's Digis just might cheer her up a little. I colored this cute image with copics and colored pencils and then applied some paint for dots on the flower.  There's glitter paint on the bee's wings of course.  I made the rosette with some lace from my stash and then added a button.  My sentiment is from my much-loved Precious Remembrance Shop's Friend Stamp Set. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your day.

Hugs, Anita
