Spring is coming, so they keep saying!

Hello all!
we managed to avoid the predicted snow storm but have still got the cold temperatures and blustery winds today - when will Spring finally arrive in the Garden State???
             Anyway, at least I can pretend it's Spring by joining in with this month's challenges at Make it Colourful, where they have an easy and hard challenge every month to encourage your colouring skills.  This card fits in with both themes - the easy challenge is to colour flowers and trees with a Spring feel and the harder challenge is to make wood look realistic.  I think my tree trunk looks a cartoon type of way at least!
       I merged the Tree of Love and Geeky Love digis and the whole scene was coloured using Copics.  I framed it and cut a sentiment using my Cameo to finish it off.  I definitely wanted to keep the layout quick and simple as colouring the scene took hours to do.

       I would like to enter this in to the challenges at Make it Colourful, Crafty Bloggers, Kaboodle DoodlesMarker PopStamp and CreateFan-tastic Tuesday and Through the Craftroom Door.

Thanks for popping in!

My a/c came on this past weekend! And I have the temp set at 79, so it doesn't come on until the house hits 81! I am really not ready for the heat, but it will be here soon!
