Now would you look at that? How did it become Sunday so soon? I keep thinking it is Saturday. Today is the last day of February and tomorrow is the first day of March - wowzers!

It has been a gorgeous weekend here weather-wise. The chickadees are outside my craft room enjoying life right now.

With that said - bring on the bright, spring colors!!!

Today's Challenges: 1. Stampin' Royalty has a bright and cheerful color challenge this week:

2. Create 4 Fun has a new wonderful sketch challenge this week:

3. Charisma Cardz Challenge this week is "birthday card with a twist (use a candle)."

4. Crazy 4 Challenges this week is "It's all about Texture (use at least 3 textures)."

And this is what I came up with :)
