I am ready for Spring



I am so ready for spring, consistent temps, not too cold, not too hot, the greens you only get in the spring, pale butterflies making love to flowers and fat bees busy spreading pollen and making honey, yep that is what I am ready for.  I am finished with Valentine's they are all mailed out mine and other peeps, YEAH!  It is after 5-6 weeks of creating that I truly realize I do not breath at my table, well I take in little wisps but not life giving breathing, so I have gotten into the habit of turning on my favorite TV channel "Veria Living" when Yoga segments are one and every once in a while will step away and do a couple of the yoga positions, it has helped tremendously when I remember to do it, lol.  So Friday night I have this red flag, my top of the list stress indicator, the dreaded cold sore on the top right corner of my mouth, hate, hate, hate that, stingy and pulsing to remind me I stress out!  BUT, I watched a documentary last week on Mutant Bees, oh my goodness, I have shared with friends for years that local raw honey will help eliminate outside, pollen related allergies, 1-2 tablespoons in the morning are a remarkable help, what I did not know are the headways drs. and scientists are making in realizing the other healing properties of honey.  They are using it for flesh eating viruses with unbelievable success, so Friday night I took some of the honey and rubbed it on the irratating cold sore, Saturday morning it was not there, so tuck that in your bonnet for future reference, who would have thought it?  Enough of my rambling, the card, I finally did a lot of me time, just surfing the internet, enjoying blog land and creating.  The card is a standard A-2, the scalloped oval is "Spellbinders.  The line drawings are mine.  I took the butterfly and daisey's and cut for a mask, masked them onto the oval with my Copics and airbrush, then cut another  two butterflies adhered them together, used Copics again and when I was ready to attach to the card I slit the upper and back wing and adhered only the back wing to the card and pulled the front wing forward for dimension.  The background papers, my new love "Bits of Ivory" the bees and frame  from "Soups On".  Did a small bow and added a pin with misc. beads.  My own little of piece of spring until it really gets here.  Happy Sunday, Hugs
