Spring is around the corner!!!

Wow - what a crazy week! The weather has been all over the place, but in general on the cool side. The sun has peeked out very little and rain seems to be the norm.....yuck! I think I am in definite need of some vitamin D. This may explain the bright colors on my cards this week :) As I began to play with my copics, creating some pretty little springy flowers, it seemed that only vibrant backgrounds called out to me - seriously I fought this urge as it took me way out of my usual comfort zone, but I followed the call and created some pretty intensely colored cards!

WARNING - you may wish to put some sunglasses on before viewing, and please note the creator of these cards is not responsible for your eyes being overwhelmed by the brightness - LOL!!

  2. I tried leaving a comment just a moment ago, but I don't think it took. If you end up with two from me then you'll understand. I love the sunshine on your cards. I haven'tt seen the sun at my house all week. I was hoping for sunshine today but it didn't happen. The flowers you chose to stamp are so pretty.
