Is anyone else ready for Spring and some daffodils?  We have a neighbor who has an entire hill planted with the bulbs and it is absolutely stunning when it blooms.
Once again, I wanted to show you one of the new backgrounds.  This one is by Seth Apter and is called Universe.  To make the background, I stamped the Cover a Card onto cream cardstock using Versamark ink and then colored it with an assortment of yellow, brown and rust Pan Pastels.

I thought the finished background had an industrial, grungy feel to it and that it might be interesting to pair with something "softer" such as a flower.  The Daffodil Stalk image was stamped onto 140lb watercolor paper and painted with some Peerless Watercolors and then the Something Will Grow sentiment finished the card.  Can you tell I have been going through an inspirational quote phase?  They have really been speaking to me lately.
