It's Time For Some Green

It's been a beautiful, quiet Sunday.  The winds a bit too nippy to be outside yet, but the sun is shining and I was so excited when we discovered our Snowdrops are blooming!  Spring is definitely on the way!

The afternoon went by quickly while I spent some time in my craft room. This pretty little lady is from Rick St. Dennis, you'll find his Etsy shop here.  She's colored with Prismacolor pencils.  I really think I need to start using a little darker colors; I like pastels but she's looking a little washed out. 

Thanks so much for visiting and have a blessed day!
