Sweet Spring....are you coming?

I woke up to a cold, foggy, grey day. I must admit I have the worst case of spring fever this year. I can not wait to have the doors and windows open and sunshine pouring in. I am afraid I am three to four months ahead of schedule. LOL! I did manage to plod over to the mailbox only to discover two lovely surprises awaiting me. My lovely friend from across the pond...Elaine  had send me a large envelope filled with some of the most wonderful goodies. She is one of the most generous people I know. (She is also one of the most talented!) This Kraftin Kimmie stamp is one of the stamps Elaine sent me. Is she not the cutest? I was first introduced to these stamps by another dear friend Amanda. Although I have teased her about these stamps I must admit watching Amanda work her magic with these stamps has made me fall for them also. I colored the image with Copics. I used my die-namics die for the lace and added a some blue half pearls. I also added a silver frame to the sentiment (SU). The bird is my attempt at a robin (spring bird!) LOL. Thank you Elaine for all my goodies I will have so much fun using them and will think of you when I do!

I hope you will stop by and see their lovely work!
