This is a card for a friend who became the grand age of 11 last week. She shares my adoration of felines and spring, I found this excellent image at east wind which combined both. She also asked if she could be eaten by an anaconda from Christmas, so she has a healthy grasp on the surreal (I offered to put her in a sleeping bag full of jelly and gone off milk, to help her prepare.)
I do like silver birches in the spring with their lambs tails and fresh green leafs. Although I love them in the autum when they turn golden, so expect to this image again with an autumn twist. Here is an espeaically springlike Squirrel for the whole vibe.
I am entering the card (not the Squirrel, he will not stay still) into the following challenges:
east wind - spring
through the craft room door - anything goes
cateredcrop - spring fever
the squirrel and the fox - autumn or Spring - seemed suitable
