Waiting on Spring...


Hello once again my sweet friends.
How are all of you doing?  I am running a bit slow this morning.
It's hard to get motivated to get on the computer when the weather outside
is perfect..  There is a little nip in the air but nothing a sweatshirt thrown on
couldn't handle. 



Besides the hummingbirds buzzing around there is not a whole lot
to photograph these days.  But before you know it spring will be here.
And there will be lots of pretty things to take photos of. 
Till then you get to see a photo of some type of brush playing in the light.


And of course the card I made for this weeks challenge over at 



I am hosting this week and the challenge I came up with is to 
create a card or project for your Best Friend..




The image I used is once again from Digital Papers. 
I just love the girly feel this has. Perfect for your Girlfriend.




To get all the details on this challenge you know what to do..


This week over at City Crafters we have a the sweet and talented Wendy
from Apple and Apricot as our guest designer.  We also have the talented Stella
joining us this week..  And if you play along with us you could win a wonderful 
prize that Stella has put together for us.  So Hop on over to CCCB for all the details. 




So I am leaving you with this fuzzy faced critter I caught. 
I think this tiny little dragonfly needs a shave..  Maybe he's just 
enjoying this nice weather as well.

I do hope you enjoy your week.

Till next time.

Hugs~
