It's Been A Long TIme

It has been almost a month since my last post and that long since I've made a card.  Say what?  Quite a bit going on in my life lately, not to mention that the MoJo is gone.  So I made a card today to send to a friend.  Not crazy about it but hopefully I can get back in the groove soon.
I am tired of winter - wind, snow ice.  Yesterday was the first day in three weeks that the wind wasn't blowing us off the planet so I walked a bit outside.  Hyacinths and Tulips are up out of the ground.  How do they grow in freezing temperatures?  Autumn is my favorite season until I go through Winter and then Spring is my favorite! haha
All that to say that I wanted to make a Spring card to send to my friend in another state and I always think Daffodils when I think of Spring.
The image is a Power Poppy Digital Stamp which I colored with Copics and Prisma pencils.
I don't use ribbon very often but I used two strips of grosgrain to highlight the yellow of the flowers.

Hope you are seeing signs of Spring where you live. The wind is back again today but the sun is out.
