Looking forward to warmer days...

Usually my favorite season is Winter. I love the rainy overcast cool days and bright stars on clear nights. I love the muted colors and knowing everything is resting for the spring days that are coming. Here in Texas it is rare to have a hard freeze but this year we have one that has set it. Since I am stuck indoors with my great kids who already have cabin fever, and I have no chance of getting out for the next few days I am dreaming of warmer weather. Who in their right mind would be looking forward to 100+ degree summer days? ME that's who! Crazy huh? So inspired by the the freezing temperatures outside and the warmer days to come I made this card.

I used Close to My Heart's "Sunny Yellow", "White Daisy" and black card stocks, markers, and stamp pads. The flowers are Just Blooms dyed with re-inkers to match. The flower stamp is a stamp wheel I picked up somewhere (???). Just simply stamp, color, layer and embellish. Oh how the "Sunny Yellow" and sunflowers remind me of the warm summer days to come! Enjoy!
