It may be winter outside

but in my heart (aka craft room) it's spring!

We awoke to a cold morning and wet snow falling.  Last year at this time it was sunny and warm.  The big positive is that it is warm in here enabling me to get this card finished. 

Some poor souls in the UK are without power and suffering blizzard like conditions and in Cornwall one poor lady lost her life as a result of a mud slide - her flat and others collapsed due to the really wet weather.  It is easy to take a nice warm home for granted.

The card I am sharing today uses the MFP sketch with a twist challenge and Mother's Magnolias image as my starting point.  Papers were from my scrap tray and the deep peach card used for layering was to pick up on the colours in the flower centre.  It was stamped in Memento black and coloured with Copics.  A Martha Stewart border punch was used for the lacy border strip.

Thank you for checking this out and all the blog hop posts this week - I hope you enjoyed it and got some inspiration from all the team. 

Have a good weekend and if you are safe and warm give thanks!
