Spring has Sprung

Hidy ho, crafty peeps!

I know it's still February here...but I'm tellin' ya, Spring is here. Daffodils, iris, and tulips are blooming. Trees are budding. My allergies are in turbo drive.

Yep, it's Spring alright.

I'm taking a break from my regularly scheduled sneezing session to bring you my project for the mid-way point of the current challenge over at House Mouse and Friends!
Our current theme is 
"Rain or Shine"
(or, as always, ANYTHING GOES...as long as it's a House Mouse image)

I chose a rainy theme for my project....and since the daffodils are blooming, this stamp is PERFECT! Poor little guy...he looks absolutely...soggy.
I colored up the image with my Prismacolor Pencils and used a Copic marker to stipple the background. I used the "Retro Circles" embossing folder by Sizzix for the card front, and a Martha Stewart edge punch along its bottom edge.
So, grab your umbrella or your sun screen and come play along! You still have a whole week to enter!!!

We have a lovely prize this time around!
