Ready for Spring


Is anyone other than me ready for a little Spring or Summer weather!!!!!  They need to shorten winter to about one month and let it go at that if you ask me.......or course, no one has asked me just yet!

I'm here today with an inspiration post for our All Dressed Up DT.  I used one of the three Little Autumn Girls that you can find in the STORE.  Cute images abound over there so be sure and check all of them out.  The sentiment is from SU and the patterned papers are from a Simon Says Stamp kit of the month.

I don't normally wear shorts in the winter time around here but do on occasion.  Some days are almost warm enough to crank up the AC.  Gotta love Texas winters!

Don't forget!!!!!!!!!   All Dressed Up is having a challenge AND Blog Hop!  Check it out!

Thanks for stopping by........
Lynn

I'll bet you look great in shorts. Your little friend here does. She is cute as a pin and I love the pretty flowered paper behind her. Have a good week ahead.

I am definitely ready for spring, and your card reminds me of the warmer weather with these light & airy colors! Those mini chevrons and florals in the papers are as cute as this little girl! Thanks for letting me enjoy spring for a moment anyway. I just heard on the tv that it's going to snow again tomorrow afternoon into Wednesday morning....groan :)

This is just precious, Lynn. I see you color hair really well..something I need to work on.

I'm all for one month of winter and then move on to 90-95 degrees. I like my hot days but not the humidity. I do go around in flip flops all winter (inside) but I wear a Cuddl Dud top, too Can't stand for my arms to get cold.

MaryH said...

Aw, Ma'am, she is just cute as can be with her little boots & purse, all ready to go out somewhere. You always manage to have the prettiest papers and combine them so well, with the diff patterns & such. Liked the nice crisp white silky ribbon trim too. I'm with you on the month long winter too. Maybe do the same for the hot summer. And have longer spring & fall? Let's get it on the ballot, hmmm? Along with the food pill. Gee, you're coming up with good idees lady. That's Texas style, huney chile. (Darn spell check doesn't want me to type southern!) TFS

We've had temps above 0C for the last week & I feel almost like wearing shorts, lol :D That's alright, we have another 25cm dump of snow coming tomorrow so I'll get over that urge :)
This little cutie is just so freaking cute! I love how you did her hair!

NanaConnie said...

Oh, I do love it when you use patterned dp, Lynn! Fantastic coloring, especially on her hair. Fab color combo.

Tammy said...

Oh I so wish the winter was reduced by not one but two month out here lol. It never seems to end :(

What a sweet image and she is colored beautifully!!! Love the pretty papers in the background, too!!!! I have just about had enough of our Texas winter...time for spring!!!!!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Another wonderful card! Methinks you haven't lived in Texas long enough if you can still consider shorts in winter? Or maybe you don't get as hot as us in Southern AZ. We get cold in the winter here... cold by our lizard standards. Between 70 and 80 is sweater weather and under 70 requires a parka and long johns!!!

Margaret said...

Another sweet card! I really like the soft, pretty papers and the adorable image! I don't think I'll be wearing shorts any time soon, but we did consider it light jacket weather earlier when it warmed up to 40!
