It WAS looking like Spring!

We have had two flurries of snow today - enough to cover the grass, although it did melt fairly quickly.
When we went out this morning, even though it was sunny, there was a nip in the air!

My journal page is celebrating a sunny Spring day - we did have quite a few of those last week!

I spritzed my page lightly before adding some sprinkles of Brushos and then spritzing again. I let it dry naturally overnight.
This morning I stamped some Woodware and Paper Artsy JOFY flowers and coloured them in using a combination of Fibralos and Derwent Coloursoft crayons. I also used a white pen and a gold pen. I then used a grey crayon around the outline of all of the flowers and stems.

The quote is a Woodware one bought a while ago but used for the first time today!

I would like to enter the following challenges

Craft Stamper - Take it, make it challenge April - Spring Flowers

Country View Challenges Blog -April challenge - Spring

Moo Mania and More - Floral challenge  

Thanks for looking, Chris

great quote, lovely page! we had a flurry of snow - barely enough to notice - but typically as I was carrying 2 large bags of shopping home from work. Hoping for some warmer weather before too long... although looking at the forecasts I think I'll be disappointed.

Gorgeous, gorgeous! I love the colors - I love your design. Did I tell you that I thought your spread is gorgeous!

I would imagine there was a nip in the air seeing you had a bit of snow!

The Spring has been rather fickle this year for sure... sorry you has to deal with the white stuff again :( Love your page !!!! It really is one of my favorites ♥ Great quote too. Have a great week and see you again soon ♥

I would gladly have traded the snow for my hail, high winds, torrential rains, etc. we had overnight. I simply adore your colorful spring inspired page, and that quote is right on the money!
