Roll On Spring. . .

Hiya folks!

Hope I find you all after the weekend? I'm hoping to pop into town today to get some craft shopping in, as long as it doesn't snow again. Trying to melt just now, but more slushy stuff forecast for later.

I wanted to pop by and post my card made with my new image released to the Delicious Doodles Shop on Saturday, 'Snowdrops'. I am hoping we get a good Spring this year, so late last year, but the apples loved it. I always get a fantastic show of snowdrops in my garden, took a photo of some of the clumps last spring, and thought it was about time I got round to drawing one of them, this is the result:

Managed to make a card with the image, which I coloured with the usual watercolour pencils, scanned and duplicated for the layers.

My dp's are all various digital ones, apart from the script. I made that myself using a lovely poem I googled which you can find HERE. The author is a lady by the name of Angela Yardy.

Used up some ribbon and lace from the stash, on top of another dp that was trimmed with an MS punch. Last thing was the addition of some pearls in the corners. Just lifts it a bit I think.

Hope you like it. I am currently working on a 'dark' project for my other blog, Delicious Darkness, which is there specifically for my more gothic/alternative stuff. Thought I should keep them seperate from my more mainstream stuff!! LOL. I will post that later in the week, as long as I get it finished by then!!

OK, need to dry the hair now and get myself ready for my shopping spree. See ya later folks!

Some challenges I am entering:
Stamp Something - Digi Day
SCSC - Texture
CYDA - Anything Goes
Daring Cardmakers - Snowdrops
