Hello, my friends!

Here is the great sketch for Challenge #10:
I made another Easter card using a fun bunny image from Bugaboo called Egg Shower. I had a good time picking the papers for this one. I thought it was so cute how the raindrop paper turned upside down looked like an egg shower! lol You might have to click on the picture to see it better. I've added Stickles to the spots on the umbrella and to accent the bunny. Again, if you enlarge the photo you can see it better. I added some fun dies, some pearls and ribbon and it's a card! :o)

Speaking of Spring...
When I was a kid, March 21st was always known as the first day of Spring.
These years it seems to always begin on March 20th but I the 21st is the first FULL day of Spring, right?
So with that in mind, I'm going to pretend today is the last day of Winter and share a few seasonal photos with you!
A pretty sunset. The little trees are heavy with snow. This was early in the season:
Then later...my fluffy little tree:
These beautiful Waxwings come every year...hundreds of them! This one was right outside my sun-room window:
The beautiful frost pattern on my sun-room door:
This one was taken last week. We've had two more snowfalls since then. That's me waving at you! :o)
Well...Spring is here now! I think somebody needs to tell all my snow!
Have a happy day! :o)
