What happened to Spring???

We were just starting to get a peek into some milder weather...all the snow had disappeared....the birds were chirping away in the morning....I was really getting encouraged that Spring was actually making an appearance. Then came the sleet and snow last night!  I couldn't believe it when I saw across the top (or bottom?) of the TV...."Winter Snow Warning"!! What? What happened to Spring?! 

I guess I should be used to it by now - after all, this is Michigan! I'm getting over it, but I'm so ready for some relief from all the white stuff.

Which brings me to my card!
I was feeling "springy" so brought out Stamping Bella's Lizzy Lollipop
This little guy/gal (?) just always makes me smile!  

I colored the image with Copics and for the ground shadow using my Prismas and gamsol.  I traced around the inside of the Nestability I used leaving just enough room for my sentiment, which I'm sure you can tell I did by hand! (Wish I had Paula's ability to do those handwritten sentiments!) I added a little stitching, layered some Basic Grey Origins on Stampin Up! YoYo Yellow, a ribbon and a daisy!  Of course I had to add a little Stickles glitter on the wings and the ends of his antennae! Gotta have the bling factor, you know?!! 

For the inside of this card, I kept with the "bee" theme and layered another sheet of my Basic Grey Origins (which, incidentally, I have been hoarding so it was tough to let go of both pages of this pattern in my little 6x6 pad!!) onto some Stampin Up! Yo Yo Yellow.

I used one of my new favorite Nestabilities - Labels Sixteen...then stamped the sentiment and the little bee. Not sure where either one of those came from! Did some minor coloring with my Copics, added some sparkle to the wings of the bee and called it a day!

This card went together pretty easily and I love coloring this image! The Lollipops are some of my favorite stamps at Stamping Bella!

Hope you're having a good week wherever you are and no snow!!
