Longing for Spring
Well we have had another absolutely freezing day here in my neck of the woods.....I am not sure that I can remember such a bitterly cold wind, even in the depths of winter! We have had snow flurries again, and this time the flakes fell down like little balls of polystyrene. I am beginning to wonder if Spring is ever going to arrive!
Never mind - as long as I can make some cards with some lovely bright colours and my favourite images, I know I can always keep a smile on my face.
So here's a card that I made with that very thought in mind. I used a lovely stamp from the Pip range at Sugar Nellie for this card. I only have two of them so far, but I just know that I will be adding to them...I just love everything about her.
I really enjoyed colouring her in to match the freebie papers which I got from a magazine, although I think I need a bit more blending practice, not to mention figuring out how to texturise and highlight the hair a bit better. Oh well, I guess I will have to practice some more colouring......what a shame lol!!
