Happy Spring!

Oh baby, I wish it were Spring outside today! We woke up to no heat in the house and snow falling outside. Brrrr...Thankfully, we have a fireplace so we were able to get a bit of warmth downstairs before the furnace guy got here to fix our almost $200 problem that only took five minutes to fix....Humm....I think I'm in the wrong line of work! LOL! Either that or I'm going to start heating with wood. Ever feel like you'd like to be more in control of your own "stuff", like food, heat, electricity? That's it, I'm moving to a farm in the mountains!, the bears, and the great outdoors that should make for quite a combination!! LOL! Anyway, today's card features another soon-to-be released Sweet 'n Sassy digi image, Early Bird. Isn't it wonderful? I'm thinking this would be a great image for a window card...And how do you like my birch tree? I didn't want there to be too much brown in the picture since the nest was brown. I found that if I colored the little lines to the tree in brown and then went over the lines with a colorless blender, that a tiny bit of the brown ran and created a great very pale color for the trees. The lovely papers used are from Bo Bunny, purchased at Wholly Scrap. My fab layout is from today's Splitcoast sketch challenge, which is being hosted by Korin...owner of Sweet 'n Sassy! Why not hop on over to SCS and participate in today's challenge.... Enjoy! PS - And if you didn't weigh in on yesterday's cards, scroll down and check 'em out!

I don't know what part of the country you're in, but I've been waking up frozen in Southern California. We don't use our heater if we can help it so we just pile on the layers.
I really enjoy seeing all of your delightful card creations, you've provided me with such wonderful inspiration!!

You really made this image come to life, Kim. Thank you for the lovely inspiration! I hope that things are warmer for your family now!! I do hear you about sometimes craving more control over the necessities of life, but I also think we learn a lot from needing to be dependent sometimes.
