Feels like Spring!

I don't know what the weather was like in your neck of the woods, but it felt like spring was in the air here in Chatham this past weekend. Oh, it was still cool...temps just over zero (in the mid 30's for my American friends) but it was sunny and the snow was melting. It made for messy walking for me and the Bessie girl with all the wet sidewalks, but so nice to be outside.



To celebrate the sunshine, and wish for an early spring, I pulled out i-wish-i-looked-so-good-on-a-bike-abella. She is such an appropriate image for me cause there is a little Bessie girl riding on the back! However, I would NEVER get my girl to sit still in a basket on a bike, one squirrel or another dog and she be gone in a flash! AND she would never allow me to put a bow in her hair...more so, hubs would NEVER allow it...LOL! But the thought of it is something I can wish for! Did you notice what I did to the basket? I took my .005 marker, held my breath, steadied my hand, and added the weaving to make it look like more of a basket! Gotta admit, I'm pretty proud of that little piece of artistic mastery since I can't draw worth a darn!

Don't forget....this week's theme is winter or winter sports! Even though some of us are wishing for spring....winter ain't gone yet so let's at least try to embrace it while it is still here!

This is such a sweet card! I love the soft colors. It makes me want to jump on my bike, but, oh yeah, we just got another 3" of snow.

Your coloring is just so amazing. I wish I could be a fly on the wall when you color. And to be able to go for a bike ride without freezing my ears, nose, fingers, etc...wouldn't that be nice?!?!?!
