feeling winter blues....

So here is the deal, I am a Colorado girl at heart- think open spaces and BLUE Skies! Colorado is the state I lived in the longest in my life, 8th grade through college-9 years. Crazy to think that is the LONGEST I have lived anywhere! YIKES. The state of Florida comes in 2nd- with 5 years. We lived in Clearwater, FL for a year and then Navarre, FL for 4 years. What do these two states have in common I ask you??? SUNSHINE!!!!!

I am thankful that as I sit here writing this little blurb that the sun is shining but I have not seen much of it this winter and that has seriously made me a little nutty! The sun gives me my pep and helps to keep my drive going....grey skies make me want to curl up, snuggle and read(oh eat too!). I know I am not alone in this crazy seasonal depression thing but seriously it BITES!

I am hoping that Spring is on its way soon! The white fluffy stuff is pretty and fun but I think I am over it already! :)

So yesterday I dived into my craft room to work on an upcoming little project...pick up on a tease here...and I made 8 cards to teach in February. After taking the pictures this morning, I can tell how much I am longing for April Showers to Bring May flowers! I love the colors and ease that they work together- hope you do too!

Here is hoping that this touch of Spring brought a smile to your face like it did mine....and stay tuned for the 7 other cards that go along with this class!
