I'm so ready for Spring!

By the time we reach the end of February, I am sick of the cold!  Cold, by itself, isn't so bad. It's the wind I despise. The wind comes along and strips away that little halo of heat your body makes around itself. It chills me right down to my bones!

So, here's a little flower card to wish for spring flowers!
I made this for a co-worker, who had been my mentee, who decided to try a different route with her career.  We worked together for some years and she was very detailed, diligent and willing to continuously learn and improve. She will be missed in the office!

This card uses my favourite scrap paper idea - monochrome ribbon tails. In this one, I matched the blue with a neutral ivory/yellowish colour. The flowers are a stamp I acquired from Annabelle Stamps (in Australia). I coloured them with my Bic Mark-It alcohol markers. I think the vibrant purple is a great contrast to the soft background.
In fact, I've had a lot of fun playing with my alcohol markers.  I have three kinds: Copic, Bic Mark-Its and a couple blending pairs from Close To My Heart. (I will show you a comparison in a future post.)

I'm in to spring imagery right now! Flowers, Easter bunnies and Butterflies! Today, we had some beautiful sunshine, even though we're still below zero. I'll take it as a promise of spring in my books!
