Rose colored..daffodils?



I know it's been a week since my last post. I've had no time for blog hopping or posting because I've been swamped with wedding invites for a customer. This is my busy season and I become a hermit in my studio!
Did everyone have a nice Easter? This was the first time in 3 years that we haven't had snow for Easter Sunday so we had our egg-hunt outside! See our crocuses? Yay for spring!


My mother swears there is such a thing as pink daffodils so I guess this card isn't too far-fetched.

When I have a few spare moments I've been practicing with my Copics, but I have sooo much to learn that my work sometimes feels sophomoric. I had fun with this card though, because I love the touches of Spring Moss and Avocado with Scarlet Jewel. So pretty together, don't you think?

I will get back to hopping and commenting as soon as I have more than 10 minutes on my computer, but with my regular job and the wedding customers I don't know when that will be. I miss you guys!

I thought I'd leave you with a pic of my plate for Easter Dinner. We had, as always, seitan ham (home made wheat meat) with pineapple dijon sauce, smashed red-skinned potatoes with scallions and chives, roasted asparagus and this year I added corn casserole with red peppers.

Thanks for stopping by! Regular posting to resume soon I hope!

Beautiful daffodils! I can hardly wait to see mine. And there are 'pink' daffodils. The centers/cups are pink. But when creating, anything goes so maybe a purple or polka dot flower next time!
