Yearning....

...for spring! Yes I am! {grin}



As soon as I saw this cute Yearning stamp at Stamper's Dream, I bought it right up. Oh my gosh, isn't it just THE cutest? I love it! the image is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, colored with Prisma Pencils, and I added some Stickles (eucalyptus, yellow, and orange peel) to the daisy and grass. The circle and scallop circle are both up on foam tape. I added some machine stitching to the Material Girl DP panel and then wrapped a piece of Ivory Wired Net Ribbon around it.

Here's a close-up (click on it if you want to see it bigger):



Thanks so much for stopping by!

I too am yearning for spring. It's been raining cats and dogs (no hedgehogs) here for the past 2 days. At least it's getting rid of all of our snow! I can actually see (brown) grass in the front yard now :)
