Waiting for Spring......

Hello all!
After yet another week of snow showers and cold temperatures, I am really in the mood for Spring - right now please!  It seems to be taking forever to get here and my warm week in Las Vegas feels like it was months, not weeks ago.  Still the advantage of not wanting to to go outside into the dreary cold is that it means plenty of indoor time for crafting!  Always a silver lining somewhere :)
                            I recently coloured up an image that I had been wanting to get to for a long time - the gorgeous "Pearls in my hair" from 'A day for daisies'.   I love the sketchy feel to their images and the DT always comes up with completely fabulous inspiration pieces too.  After I had coloured her, I decided to keep all the focus on the image and made a very CAS card by just matting the image and a printed sentiment and adding a few little sparkles on the side.


                      I would like to enter her into the challenges at A day for daisies,  QKR stampede,  4 crafty chicks,  Sparkles , Oozak and Addicted to CAS.


Thanks so much for stopping by :)
