Spring is Here!!

Good morning everyone!! I hope you are having a great day....I have nothing to do today except stamp!! Well, I could mop the kitchen floor, clean the bathrooms, run the sweeper, dust, but I really don't want to so off to the craft room I go...LOL!!!  I'm feeling a lot better...thanks for all the well wishes!! I went back to the doctor Monday and she decided I did have pneumonia so I got some antibiotics, an inhaler, and some cough syrup with codiene. The cough is still there but I have a little more get up and go...yeaaaa!!!

I made this card last night during Project Runway All Stars...I was disappointed that Austin didn't win...I sooo love all his gorgeous clothes!! Anyway... The sweet Whipper Snapper image was colored with Copics, the papers are from Echo Park's Walk in the Park and Country Drive, and I used the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #233.

Aren't these just the cutest little birds...I splurged on several new Whipper Snapper stamps..they are so much fun to color!!

I made this for a few other challenges, too:
1. Crafts and Me Challenge - springy colors
2. Celebrate the Occasion - welcome spring
3. Crazy Amigo Challenge - spring
4. Papertake Weekly -  bingo (buttons, flowers, diecuts)
5. Incy Wincy Challenge - things with wings

Thanks for visiting...have a great Friday!!!!

Hi Joan! Now that you have a diagnosis, I hope you will be better FAST! What a darling Spring card with those cute little blue birdies and the wonderful wide zigzag!! Hugs, GF!

Cassie said...

Well at least they figured out what you have, and now you can focus on getting to 100%. Such a darling card, Joan, and if I were you I'd be in the craft room all day too. Cleaning is highly overrated ;)

Tammy said...

I prescribe plenty of stamping and creating. Absolutely positively no cooking, cleaning, or laundry!
Love your sweet card and darling image. The blue and yellow color combo is so striking.
Hope you feel 100% soon!

Glad you are feeling better, my mom had pneumonia and was down for about 4 weeks. Make sure you don't over due :) I think you should just stamp and not clean. Your card is so pretty, loving those sweet birds with the paper. Have a great weekend.
