Hey! What Happened to Spring?

It's been such a cold spring here, and now it's hot and muggy. We were still using the heat last week and now we have the A/C running. What gives? Oh, yeah...I remember...I live in New England, lol!

I actually got some stamping done last night!!! I did a really cool card that I can't share with you just yet. I have to keep it under wraps for another month. Aaaargh...not going to be easy, but I'm sworn to secrecy.

Here's one I can show you now, though, and I'm really pleased with the way it came out. Those bright colors really make me happy lately. The image I used is available from smARTworks in the ABC Fresh Picked set. The printed paper is all from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie 6x6 collection. In fact, I did this card for this week's Basic Grey challenge.

I should also tell you about the flower in the corner. It didn't come that color, and neither did the brad I used in the center. The flower was a pale yellow Prima that I colored with Copic markers to match the yellow in my image. Same for the used to be a glittery white. I just colored over it with a brown Copic marker and presto chango...instant sunflower!
