A sweet goodbye to Winter…

It may have started off at 30 degrees this morning, but by 11am it was 64 degrees.  Ah, Spring!  Seriously, even the birds were tweeting outside this morning. 

I suppose this should get me in a Spring Cleaning mood. NOT!!  But I did put my own laundry away, organized the drawers in my dresser, tossed two things and put several more in the bag to donate.  Started a load of laundry and ran the dishwasher.  enough…!

So now I can reward myself with a little coloring.

I decided to make a thank you card for a friend.  But at the same time it was a 'Thank you for leaving, Winter, and not being very hard on us this year'.   I was inspired to use this adorable stamp, Siku and Shiya, by Mo Manning for Stampavie.  I see the boy as Winter and the girl as Spring, doing a little eskimo kiss in greeting.

Aren't they sweet?

I used the following colors from my Copic Markers to color them:

Boy:

  • YG23/YG25/YG63/YG67
  • B21/B93/B95/B97
  • E51/E31/E13
  • Teensy bit of E53 in the fur and trim, blended out with C00/C1
  • C1/C3 for shoe bottoms

Girl:

  • RV21/RV32/RV34 
  • B21/B93/B95/B97
  • R85/R89 
  • E51/E31/E13
  • Teensy bit of RV21 in the fur trim, blended out with C00/C1
  • C1/C3 for shoe bottoms

Sky: B0000/B01

Snow: C00/C1/C3/C5 for shadows

Spellbinders Labels Eight was used to diecut and emboss the focal point image.

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed the card as much as I enjoyed coloring it.

Hmmm. I may even sweep and vacuum.  Call the paramedics, my husband may collapse from this sudden spurt of housework.  *pick up the paddles and yell, CLEAR!*
