Happy Spring!!

Okay wishful thinking on the Spring bit but I am just longing for some greenery and sunshine so I had to ink up this sweet new PI stamp from MFT and use some happy paper from October Afternoon.

I started by stamping my image twice. Once onto PTI Cream Cardstock and once onto the red and cream gingham paper so I could paper piece this little sweeties dress. The rest of her is colored with my copics. My dp is October Afternoons Farm Fresh and all cardstock is SU. This green ribbon is from MFT also and I just LOVE it as you will see between yesterdays card, todays and one I will post either later or tomorrow. It is really yummy ribbon and makes a great bow. (see yesterdays post). And before I forget, my layout is this weeks Mercys Tuesday Sketch. MTSC62.

So yes we are getting slammed with a ton of snow. My dh had to go into the office this morning so I needed to get out there and shovel and let me tell you, I need to make an appt to work on my arms because when I was finished my arms were like jelly!! I dont work out my arms but I really thought that with all the grocery bags I can carry at once I was working SOME muscle but I am sadly mistaken!!! I think I need to do curls with those grocery bags!!! Does anyone else have arm excercises that work? Please share if you do!!

Thanks so much for visiting me today. I love the company especially on a snowy day like today!! Enjoy...
