Dropping By

Well Spring has finally arrived! I went to walk my dog at 5:40 a.m. this morning - heavy sweater and winter coat on, opened the garage door and was hit full on by warm, moist, humidity filled air! 

After taking a few layers off, I enjoyed a nice walk, albeit in the pitch black dark. It was nice to enjoy a +15 degree morning after such a brutally cold winter.

Inspired by warmth and sun and thoughts of summer fun, I put together the card below using Waddles - isn't he the cutest, happiest penguin you have ever seen? 


I coloured him and the sky with alcohol markers. I wasn't happy with my clouds so I filled them in with cotton balls to make some puffy clouds. Honestly I didn't want to start over with the colouring so I tried to find an appropriate "fix".
