Spring Time Bear

Yes, I know the Meteorological Office have said that Spring is here, the birds seem to think it is, and the flowers are pushing their way through, but in my book Spring doesn't start officially until 21 March.   I wonder if the MO can explain the snow we had last night and again this morning. Spring?  Who are you guys kidding?!

But if we can't have real Spring yet, at least we can still look forward to it, which is what I had done with this little chap

This is Spring Time Bear from the last LOTV release
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Vintage Photo, Brushed Corduroy, Tattered Rose, Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap
Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain, Black Soot, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany, Mustard Seed
Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass
Papers are from the Nitwit/LOTV Country Lady pad
Sentiment is LOTV Scroll Sentiments
Martha Stewart border punch
Memory Box Whimsical Florish (snipped in half to get it either side of the image)
and I can finally name those corners - SCACD Classic Corners - ta dah!

Thanks for popping over to see me.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Oooh, just how scrumptious is this backing paper? It's just perfect for the image and the image is coloured to perfection. All round gorgeousness. I'm cold and the fire has broken :( Obviously I need more layers of fat and so to this end I have munched my way through a substantial amount of chocolate digestives. I'm sure I'll be toastie tomorrow :) Jayne xx

I agree with you, for me Spring has always started on the 21st March. We have had a dusting of snow and the temperature plunged to goodness know what, but it is extremely cold brrrrrrrrrrrr!
Another delightful card with a very cute little character :o)
