It's Spring!

Hmmm, not sure what happened but I've been in a bit of a funk since the weekend.  The hubby even commented that I need to "relax" and that I seem "high strung".  Funny...I feel high strung!  2 weeks with no Pepsi and I'm exhausted all the time...but I'm not giving in.  Then last night, the little one climbed into our bed at 2 am and started talking nonsense, then told us that "When Martina goes to heaven we'll have to get her a gift." Martina is our daycare provider...yikes!  Okay, boohoo me, onto the good stuff.

To make this card, I went in search of challenges...I just have not been feeling the inspiration.  I found a whole bunch that I could work with, and this is the result.
The paper is from an old K & Company Matte Stack but the image is brand new, first time inked!  Lily Butterfly arrived on my doorstep a few weeks back, but she's been neglected.  With all the talk of spring, I wanted to make something bright and cheery.    I hope you like it.

My card qualifies for the following challenges:
All Sorts Challenge Blog - Spring is in the Air
Raise the Bar - Fuits of Labour
S2G Challenges - Spring/Pastels

I've been trying to gather and take a picture of the copics I use when I colour an image...so much easier than listing them.  So, here are the copics that I used for this image...you'll see that I'm trying to label all my Ciao's so they are easier to find.  I still used the computer for a couple of them.

Stamps:  Pink Cat Studio Lily Butterfly
Paper:  K & Co, CTMH Clover Leaf, Bubblegum
Ink:  Copic Markers, Memento Black
Accessories:  Bella Dots, Prima Flowers, Misc. Button
