Bloggers Challenge 143 -- Think Spring

I just officially joined the Bloggers Challenge group. This will be my first official post. The theme this week is "Think Spring".
There are a lot of things that say spring. However, today as I arrived home after running errands, I saw my first robin of the season. I got really excited. Robins to me indicate that spring is near. What better image is there to show spring than a robin and robins eggs. The stamp image is from I Brake for Stamps. I colored it with Copics on Cryogen paper. The punched frame is done with a Fiskars punch. I love the look of the pearl embellishments. Hopefully spring will really arrive soon!
