Spring is in the air

The glorious weather this afternoon inspired me to make this card.



I treated myself to some new stamps recently and this is one of them, I have admired them on other people's blogs but would prefer to stamp rather than using a digi download. Coloured with copics, just treated myself to some copic sketch markers, so you will see a lot of auburn haired characters on my cards for a while, just humour me!!!
I am supposed to be on a stash diet, but a girl has got to have new stamps from time to time, a few new punches and more copics, the only thing I haven't bought recently is papers, I have my very own paper mountain and I am determined to make inroads into it before buying any more.... watch this space!

I am entering this into 3 challenges
Get Sketchy - sketch
Dutch Dare - Summer in Winter
ABC - N - New, stamps and border punch

Hi Sam,
Great sunny card, just what I needed to see on a dark winter's morning. I love digis but I find it much easier to use stamps so tend to go for them more often. I keep looking in Mo's shop but can't decide what to get, I want them all!
