Spring has Sprung

Here is a real springy card for this Sunday.  Everything looks like spring here.  The trees are all budding out and the flowers are blooming.  Even the bluebonnets are blooming.  But, we woke up this morning to a very windy and cold day.  Hopefully this will be a short cool spell.  I was getting used to the warm weather we were having.  Back to my spring card, isn't this just the cutest image?  I used a digi stamp from Mabelle RO called Spring Chickie.  You can get her here.  I have used a sketch from Sketch Wednesday.  Here it is.
Here is a close up of Spring Chickie.
