Beat those winter blues!

Ugg. I am usually a "winter" person for the most part but after having a few teaser days with temperatures near 60, it is really hard to face a day when they return back to the around 35 mark. This wonderful image of Scarlette from Bugaboo makes me feel a little better! Of course I am still green with envy that my mom & sister are flying off to warm Cancun this weekend (lucky dogs!) but I do know summer is just around the corner!
DP: Die Cuts With a View for all but the yellow tone on tone dots, it came for a QVC kit from many yrs ago
Sun, beach balls & sentiments are from The {Stamps} of Life
 I used pencils to color Scarlette & the little beach balls(with glossy accent over top) & chalks for the background
I got the "recipe" for this one from  Sweet Sketch Wednesday
I am also entering it on:
Do You Stack Up? Where the challenge is all about patterned paper
Totally Stampalicious Where the theme is no reason at all/just because

I hope you enjoy & that it helps shake a few of those winter blues!

  1. I too am ready for Spring but there's a "huge" snowstorm coming our way tomorrow night. They are saying 12-20" but we will see as 12" will be only a minor inconvenience to natives like me.

    Love the cheeriness of this card and it's bright colors. HURRY UP SPRING! Great job!
