So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
- Irish Blessing

 This is for 2 challenges.The first challenge is for For Fun Challenge..did the Groundhog say Spring or Winter! I opted for SPRING!

 The Stamp TV color challenge using bubblegum, sweet mango and black onyx. For me that was a very unusual color combination...but it did work...but it did take me awhile to come up with a design combo I could like!

 I used Tim Holtz Distress INks, wild honey, black soot, worn lipstick, stormy sky and used water with them to create the watercolor effect. I have just taken a class at Archivers on doing this and this was my first solo attempt! It really is a neat process!

I embossed the saying with white, the bird with gold
and added the ribbon and pearls.This is the inside and
I used spellbinders Labels 15 and Scapmart Exclusive
 labels around the Hero Stamps.
The dp was a stash piece.
Inside and yes spring is coming!
