Spring Will Arrive

As I have mentioned before, I live in the snow belt region of Ontario. We still have lots of the white stuff around and they are forecasting more in the next few days. I hear that the skiing is terrific right now, but I no longer take part in such winter activities. Sometimes, at this point of the year, we begin to wonder if spring will ever get around to visiting us again. It is not unusual for us to have snow lingering in the shadows well into April, and we long for the sight of green grass. (I really shouldn't complain, as we have had a relatively mild winter this year.) When I saw this digital stamp by Mo Manning, I just couldn't resist turning the little bird into a robin. The stamp is entitled, A Little Birdie Told Me, so I decided that the little birdie could be telling this adorable little girl that spring would arrive eventually.

The card base is made from Memory Box card stock. The focal image is coloured with Copic markers on Solar White Neenah paper. I cut out the image and adhered it with 3D mounting squares onto a background constructed of some gorgeous My Mind's Eye paper from the Reunion collection. I added a chipboard border under the window, also from My Mind's Eye, with a stamped sentiment from Hero Arts. As a finishing touch, I used twine to tie a bow above the sentiment. Here is a close-up of the detail on the card:

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week, where the topic is "Anything Goes".

Until next time,
