Spring, Spring Where For Art Thee Spring!

Hi all,
Can't believe how cold the weather is after such sunny days. We had brought the rabbit out of the garage into the sunshine and now we've had to put her back because she is too cold. I have been rather busy with work having to put in more hours and unfortunately I haven't visited as many of my blog friends as I would have liked, but I am going to try to catch up. My daughter had her stitches removed from her hand, but it hasn't healed just as well as it should have, so she has had to be off work for a little while longer. Will have to be making birthday cards for my daughters as one is 19 on Wednesday and my other daughter is 21 on the 24th of April (didn't plan that too well).

Hope everyone is well. Here is a card I made when the sun was shining.

Main image LOTV coloured with Promarkers and Copics, then cut out with Spellbinders Labels Ten.
Papers by Papermania which were stitched.
Brown card stock from stash.
Memory box Catalina Wreath.
Cheery Lyn Heart Dies.
Martha Stewart Butterfly and Leaf punch.
Flowers WOC and others.
Added pearls and pins.
Corner dies Cheery Lyns Lace Corder Deco B.
Sentiment by Whimsical Designs- Whimsical fun volume.
