Spring Colors is our Challenge

I know that much of the country is enduring a long hard winter but its time to 
dream of spring  Here in the desert southwest Spring started in January. Of 
course come May when you all are enjoying delightful weather we will be 
enduring the brutal summer heat. I love the wonderful 
colors of spring dont you??For this weeks Challenge.I have used an image 
from the New March Release Friends being showcased
 this week. After coloring I have cut it out with the Spellbinder
 Decorative Label One. Colored and cut out one of the hummers
 from the Hum Along Set and pop dotted it onto the flower.
 The little floral side panels are from the Chateau Lavender
 Collection.I also added some embossed vellum to soften it
 up a bit.The sentiment if for the Bring on the Sun Set 
mounted on a piece cut with a Spellbinder. All was
 stitched around. So excited that my husband was 
able to fix my  Pfaff, its working and what a pleasure
 to sew on a machine that has a nice even 
stitch instead of the newer terrible one!

We would love you to join our challenge this week and the winner
will be taking home this Stamp Set;;;;;

Just beautiful, Davi. And, the stitches look super. Husbands can do the best things, can't they? I love your side panels.
I'll be glad to see the hummers here probably end of April.

July and August are our hottest and most miserable months with the heat and unbearable humidity. Believe me, though, I love it compared to winter.
