Spring Has Sprung in CT (at least at the moment!!)

Oh my goodness.......the weather is warm (high 40's and into the 50's), the sky is as blue as can be, not a cloud in the sky, no snow on the ground, no rain........wow.....have I been enjoying the change!!!  I just sat outside yesterday for an hour or so, playing with the dog and enjoying the WARMTH of the sun.  When I went swimming (inside....it ain't that warm yet!!!!) yesterday and today, I could just wear a zip up hoodie....the winter coat left home.  Took a mile walk yesterday with the dog, a slow walk of course, with my knee/feet issues.  Hope to do the same today.......cuz...........

IT IS GLORIOUS!!!!  (Can you tell I am ready for spring!!!)

This card was actually done for three reasons.  First for today's Color Challenge on SCS, secondly for today's Teapot Tuesday Challenge on SCS, and also for an RAK request on SCS.

The image is by Penny Black (isn't she the sweetest?), the dp is by MS, other cardstock and piercing kit by SU.  I colored with Copics and die cut with Spellbinder's Nesties, then finished it off with my last piece of celery twill from SU.

DOES ANYONE HAVE THAT CELERY TWILL GATHERING DUST AT THEIR HOME????  I WOULD LOVE TO BUY IT FROM YOU?????

That is the sweetest little image! And I am so glad you got to enjoy the blue skies and sun, even if it is snowy outside the sun and blue sky make it better, but hey! Your snow is gone and Spring is on its way!
