Hell of a Spring !

If you're looking for my Twisted Thursday post, please scroll down to the next post.

     So the northeast has record snow and storms all winter and now the temperatures warm up, the snow melts, and the floods start.  This card is a bit outside my norm but I'm sending it to relatives who live near the Ohio River.  Of course, with the flooding, there are a lot more people who are 'near' the Ohio River than usual.  So I guess this has to be for all of you who are facing the massive northeastern snowmelt with a bit of trepidation.  :-D

     The image is from Rick St. Dennis; a little bit 'dark,' maybe brightened a bit with the sentiment.     :-D

     I used ProMarkers to color, then die cut both the image and the mat.  The black ribbon is threaded through two, photo-corner punched spots.  The sentiment is hand cut and matted.  I added three pearls on each side of the sentiment and layered it all onto a black card front.  I love the CAS, masculine look of it.

I applaud your hard work and lighter sentiment for this dark image...strange and scary little guy! Yup, lots of water now that the snow is melting!

Your coloring is amazing. Sorry to hear about the flooding. We are hoping that our snow melts slowly or we might float away.
