Welcome back and Happy Sunday to all my friends.  Wish I could say it was warm and sunny here, but again we are having some cold, rainy weather.  Boo! Hiss!  I wasn't made for Winter. My skin gets all dry and flaky and the skin on my fingers split from being so dry even though I lather them up all day with hand lotion. I'm ready for Spring!

  1. Hi Maggie, love your bright card but oh my gosh the thought of eating ice cream is making me shiver ... lol! Christine xx OSAAT teamie.

    1. I agree. I love ice cream, but I seldom eat it in the winter when it's so cold.

  2. Thanks for doing such a wonderful job with my image! The background is just perfect for this digi. :)


    Your Sister OSAAT DT

    1. Thanks CraftyGirl. It was a little daunting until I found the paper and then it just came together.

  3. I can certainly see you are ready for Spring/Summer with this gorgeous creation Maggie. Love you colour combo on this one and amazing job matching the ribbon to the dp, not easy by a long shot. BTW - have you by any chance tried warm wax for your hands or E45 - both are fab for dry skin probs - just a thought :) :) big hugs, Jane xxxxx

    1. Thanks Mimi. No, I haven't tried either of those. Will look into it.

  4. I'm more than ready for spring too Maggie! Ucky winter weather we're having.
    Love your springtime card and those cute little umbrellas on the patterned paper. The ice cream looks yummy!

  5. Your sweet, bright card makes me wish for summer.

  6. This is fabulous Maggie - I could do with that ice cream at the moment, we are sweltering!
