Looking Forward To Spring

We see little hints of Spring - daffodils poking up, faint color on tips of branches, some warm days and then we have the forecast of snow this weekend.  It is those crazy weeks between winter and spring.  Aren't we all ready for Spring?  I get anxious around this time of year.   So here is a card in anticipation:
I knew I wanted to go with the wood theme so I just kept playing around until I came up with this combo.  I used a piece of Kraft and embossed with a wood grain EF then rubbed some ink on the top to bring out the dimension.  The piece of wood grain designer paper is a sneak preview of some new Doodle Pantry papers coming out in a few days.
The image is by Robyn's Fetish.

So while I wait (impatiently) for more signs of Spring such as bird's nests, I will continue to enjoy the early signs and also the majestic eagles that are so plentiful in February and March.
