It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood here, but I took a fancy today to Paper Craft's Moxie Fab World challenge, "Cure for the Winter Blues." There were several images given to stir your creative juices, for example:
Because they are already sprotting their leaves and little tiny buds, I went with one of my all-time-favorite-classic images: the Hero Arts Hydrangea:
Isn't this stamp a truly "happy, happy" image that never grows old? I did the darker shading with a Marvy navy blue marker but on the glossy paper it looks so much lighter in the picture.

in the cream and navy blue:
I was a little ahead of my time. It won't "count" for this challenge, of course, because it was posted here two weeks ago, but it bears pasting here today for inspirational purposes because the colors are so spot on.
Happy rest of the day to everyone! I'm off with a friend to see a matinee of The Iron Lady. We were so bummed that we missed it when it was first in town, but hooray, it has come back! Thanks for stopping by!
