New Beginnings - Video - Unity Blog hop




Is it Spring already?
...the warmer temps around here is  making me feel like Spring has arrived..the snow is melting away and the birds are confused and  back already! I know..I can hear you say.. don't get fooled by this sudden blanket of warmth we still have a lot of white to get through before we can see any green!
.......but I can always paint some flowers and make it look like Spring on my blog..can't I ?



Sentiments like these which are  large enough to be the focal point of my card coupled with a font that is just my absolute favorite are enough to  inspire me to get painting even when I am totally out creative energy!



This lovely sentiment is from Unity Kit Of The Month -magic Of Beginnings . The background has been sketched using watercolors.


 ..and finally, as promised, here is the video for the card below.. I posted this yesterday and if you want to see some close up stills then click here-Strength
