I'm ready for spring!

We had rain and some snow mixed in all day yesterday and the temperature today is straining to reach 30 degrees! I know I've said I love the snow, and I do, but now I am so ready for spring! My yard is such a mess...I am just itching to get out there and start cleaning up and anxious to see the tiny green sprigs of life popping up all over! Okay, back to reality.



This adorable Tilda from Magnolia I picked up from Magnolia-licious a few weeks ago. I stamped her and then masked the image in order to stamp the background. I decided to go with a soft spring look and watercolored the image with Adirondack reinkers. These images are large so I decided to go with a large square format (one of my favs...although a pain to mail!) and used these lovely papers from Making Memories. I added a few buttons and a ribbon (which really isn't that purple irl) and used my Nesties to cut out the image and scallop mat. The SWEET sentiment is from a Heidi Grace clear set. One of my lights was out when I was taking this picture which has thrown the color off a bit and made the background so dark.

Anyway, happy Monday.
