Spring Fling

Spring Fling...
I told you I was thinking spring! These are definitely my fav colors right now! I love the first sight of crocus, daffodil & tulips! Ahhhh!
This poochy was colored with pastels. Though in my limited artistic knowledge I noticed there are various mediums called pastels! My Stampin Up chalks say pastels, my oil crayons say pastels...does someone out there want to fill me in...what are others referring to when they say pastels????? I used the oil crayons here and I really like how you can get varying shades. Teach Me! :)
Kazan's sketch was perfect for this little number (2Sketches4You) and Crafty Muse took it easy on us this week encouraging us to make a card with our favorite colors....think Spring! I don't know the company for this image, I rec'd it a while back...do you know? Would love to buy the stamp!!! The pup is so cute taking time to stop and smell the flowers.......don't we all need to do that!
I pray today, you would take time to stand still and consider the beauty of this wonderful creation we call Earth! Blessings!

Maria, I love it! No clue about the pastel thing though other than maybe they mean more of the white paper is showing through! Truly a guess! this is just so adorable and fresh!! Wow and your coloring is amazing!! Fantastic job!
