The Rains Came and The Flowers Are Blooming

Gosh, can you believe it's April 28th already! Spring has finally sprung, the trees are leafed, the rain has stopped for today at least, the flowers are beginning to bloom and I've finally turned off the furnace.  I've made this card to share that I think fits the following 3 challenges:
1.  SCAD Friends With Heart (The color blue & Flowers)
2.  Simon Says Stamp Challenge (Anything Goes) They are having a blog hop too
3.  Stamp With Fun (Sketch)

The image is the adorable Hey Birdie from SCAD and the new Peekers set by Elizabeth Bell.  Just click on the link to see the complete set. She is just one of the sweetest and cutest images in the new set.  She was colored with Copics, masked and the blue sky stamped with Colorbox Chalk.  The DP is from K&Co Julianne paper pack and the silver matting is from my stash and I have no idea where I got it.  The flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts with the flowers having a touch of Star Dust Stickles on them. Oh I love those SD Stickles...........lol  A Spellbinder's scalloped circle die and a MS Branch Punch also used.  The flourish was cut on the Cricut and smothered in those wonderful SD Stickles.  I added Diamond Glaze to the water in the birdbath and when dry Viva Decor Hologram Glitter. The Copics that were used are: E21, 00, 000 - R39, 37, 35 - YG67, 63, & G20 - B95, 93, 91, 000 - C6, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 - YR24, 31, Y21, 11, 0. 

Thanks so very much for stopping by and I really hope to see you again soon.  If you have the time to leave me a comment I'll be sure and pop over to see what's new with you and your blog.

My 2nd Blog Anniversary comes to a close at midnight tonight and I will be drawing 2 lucky winners tomorrow morning.  The winners will be posted no later than 6 pm here on my blog, so stay tuned you may be one of the lucky ones.
"Hugs" Carol (Granny)
