Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday.
It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a sketch challenge for us and it is such a great sketch:
On a personal note:
Lou and I have just returned from a Caribbean cruise. It was wonderful to spend my birthday in Havana, Cuba and to feel some warm air and the sun on my face. It was 60 degrees at home yesterday and we are watching the snow melt. It was very odd sitting on the front porch in the sun and still seeing the garden covered in snow :-) But, we know that Spring is definitely on her way as we watched - and listened - to multiple Sandhill Cranes flying overhead yesterday. At one point we saw 20 of them flying in formation over our house. We also heard the trilling of the Red Shouldered Blackbird and noticed a couple of Robins had returned. this morning it was the turn of the Mallards and the Canadian Geese. I need to check, but I think the Junco's have left, which is a sure sign that Spring is on her way.
I'll have more about our Cuba trip - and a couple more cards - for you later this week. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
