No Winter Lasts Forever............

SOS Headquarters

No Spring Skips Its Turn.........

Hello dear friends: I Hope all of you are doing well, especially managing the mandatory confinement, that's really hard for me but, I count my blessings because my family and friends are ok and that's what's important.

The SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge for the next 10 days encourages you to focus your imagination on Spring/Passover/Easter so we hope you get inspired to come and play along with us.

This image is from an Inkadinkado stamp I bought about 5 years ago and I can't believe I've used it maybe twice?? I love it, besides the flowers blooming and trees showing off their new greenery, Robin's nests are a sure sign that Spring has arrived, love the soft blue color of the eggs, simply lovely.
I just stamped the image on Strathmore Bristol paper and colored it with Prismacolor pencils, I added some enamel dots from Gina Marie Designs and some gold paint to the Butterfly wings.
The pattern paper is from a retired line from Lili of the Valley, the corner details are from Cherry Lynn.
This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

Love, love this sentiment from Elizabeth Craft Designs and it's called "Winter-Spring".

I hope you come along and play with us over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, stop by the blog to check out my teammates' awesome creations.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.
