Spring is coming!



I promise, spring really is coming. Although, if here in the Northeast, we have been having very nice weather for this time of year. This adorable chick snowglobe image definitely made me think of spring. It is a digital image from A Day for Daisies which they were offering free if you played in their challenge which was to use glitter (with one of their images, of course). I discovered ADFD since they are the sponsors for Sweet Sketch Wednesday #138 challenge this week. That sketch is the one that begins this post. Such a fun sketch. They have changed up their challenges a bit and now require the use of an image from the sponsor. These chicks were just perfect. I'm also entering the For Fun challenge which is to use farm animals ONLY. As you can see in the picture below, I used a glitter pen to color over the eggs and added little dots in the air of the globe to mimic snow.

This is just great! I do love how you colored the image and added all the sparkle. Up here in MI, we have had the mildest winter in years. I'm afraid my flowers are going to start coming up.
Thanks for joining us at Sweet Sketch Wednesdays.
Hugs, Heide

This is a beautiful card! I almost picked up that same image the other day, and I dare say you've sold me on it. :) I love how vibrant and glittery you made it. I can't believe that's all from a glitter pen. Gorgeous!
