Winter Watcher: Spring Style

So I haven’t really visited Blog Land too much this week. But that’s not to say I haven’t been busy creating. I have some fantastic new images that have kept my hands (and pencils!) quite busy. And I can’t wait to share them with you! But…not yet! Not even a sneak peek! I know, I’m terrible. I will tell you this though. They are from Stamp Insanity’s newest line that will be released very, very soon! You will love them!

But on to today’s project. I had started this version of Sweet Pea Stamp’s Winter Watcher some time ago and never finished her. Well, today was her day! She and her lovely cat are done and mounted on a card!


I am so done with Winter that I couldn’t bear to make it look Wintry. I needed it to feel more like Spring! So I added some happy little buttons and a few bits of ribbon.


I think the colors are joyful! Please click on any of the pics to see them bigger! I used Twinkle H2O’s and colored pencils to color this pretty lady and her feline in. The paper is Prism and K & Co.

I so needed a card like this one today! It’s grey and dreary here, so these bright colors definitely helped my sleepy mood! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Gorgeous! Love the springy colors and your title makes me think of that movie The Watcher in the Woods with Bette Davis. My parents would rent that for me and I'd watch it over and over!!
