{2.3.2012} a sketch for februrary

Feeling Spring…

Arizona’s winter has been weird this year.  Where is the cold?  I’m just hoping this warm winter means we are going to have a mild summer. Doubtful.  Not that I am complaining, but kinda. Maybe. Just a little.  I’d like a little winter before spring hits.

So, of course, I had to use the spring is in the air sentiment.  It is so true.  A new month means Unity released a new kit of the month called {Lucky to Have You}. You will want to click HERE to see the full kit my friends.


It also means we start a new KOM sketch challenge.

You are welcome to use the sketch however it inspires you.
The PRIZE is huge…
A FREE kit of the month PLUS 100 Unity stamps!
Amazing, right?
Hope you will play along with us this month.
You can click HERE for all the deets.

It is Friends with Flair Friday… head on back to the Unity blog to see all the fabulous projects linked up for today.

    You are going to get me buying these Unity stamps…I love those umbrellas!

    Oh, cute! I love the twine bow 🙂
    And, if you want some winter, I have some extra. 15 cm of snow fell Wednesday, and this morning walking the kids to school it was -25C with the windchill. You are welcome to it 😉 lol

    BEAUTIFUL card. And Delaware has had NO winter thus far. Very unsettling. The plants are confused…and so are the birds. I see the flocks returning and it’s a bit too early for that!

    This is adorable. I love the stamped vintage number image in the umbrella and the twine accent. Cute raindrop background paper too. Our weather in NY has been weird as well. I am hoping for a little snow myself.
