Think Spring!

So this doesn't count as being an 'obscure' occasion for us... 'but January is National Hobby Month and that means we get to celebrate what we love to do all month long.

I am so sick of snow, frigid temps and being house-bound... how 'bout you? So I chose to make something that reminded me of Spring. Daffodils fit the bill as they are one of the first bulbs to flower. I love daffodils.. just wish the local deer wouldn't use them as snacks!

Today's card is for a few challenges. I used the sketch from Mercy's Tuesday sketch challenge #56 for this week, did some Cuttlebug embossing for the dare at Digital Tuesday Challenge, and added a grosgrain bow and button for the challenge at Tuesday morning sketches.




This digital image is one of my very first digis I purchased when I found it at Sketching Stamper. Artist Christine Dark does amazing botanical designs great for coloring enthusiasts... I love her work!

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day and think Spring!!

'Til next time have fun and be safe in all you do!

Details: Daffodil image from Sketching Stamper, Cuttlebug embossing folders, prisma pencils with OMS, ribbon from Michael's, button from my stash, misc DP, Neenah white cardstock.

Just beautiful, Peggy! I am with you on the snow...I have been cooped up for almost a month now! Talk about cabin fever! Can't wait for some of this to go away so we can get together! I miss our coloring days!

Spring would be nice right about now since it hasn't been this cold here this long since the 1940's or something like that. I am not used to below freezing temps! Your card is gorgeous!
