It's Spring

or at least they say it's spring.  It's certainly not spring here. We've been getting lots of heavy, wet snow all day today.  It's supposed to continue tonight and tomorrow and we're supposed to get 15-20 com of it on tuesday!  Maybe I'll get my blizzard day yet!

I've got a Sugar Nellie image for you in this post. I've colored her up for the Sugar Bowl Challenge.  The Challenge is a sketch along with the theme of Spring,and I've managed to make it all work, I think.  I really like the orange and green colors.  Copics were used again, along with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I also texturized the two paper strips with a cuttlebug folder. I added a wee bit of glossy accents to the coffee to add a bit of shine to it.

I hope it's definitely Spring in your neck of the woods. If so, send it ,my way please!
