The Colors of Spring......FMS80




After a visit from the Easter bunny this past weekend we all headed to Cousin Cindy's for our annual Easter dinner.  Last year at dinner we were all so excited knowing that there would be a new little one at this year's event!  So on Sunday Miss Emma was the guest of honor and was as charming as could be as she was passed from lap to lap.  I worked on this card when I came home that night -  and I may have been inspired by this picture my daughter took earlier in the day!  I am so ready for spring and the return of color to the northeast!




I am delighted to be hosting the sketch challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  I kept the sketch very simple - should be a great starting point for some wonderful creations!
