It's the first of March and that means a new page for my calendar! I'm of course talking about Kate Crane's lovely Calendar Challenge, for more info on that please visit Kate's blog. I wanted to make my page as energetic and happy as I could because during this time of the year I'm always almost giving up on hope of ever seeing spring at all (more about this at the end of my post...), so I used lots of yellow, red and orange. And a few little birdies and a cute dress - please spring, come already! :)

Tässä taas näytille pelkkä tausta (jouduin tosin kuvaamaan tämän illalla keinovalossa, joten värit saattavat hieman valehdella) / Here's just the background (I had to photograph it in the evening so there wasn't any natural light which means the colours might be a bit 'wrong').
I know the 1st of March is considered to be the first day of spring so I thought I'd show you what the first day of spring looks like over here in Finland. I took this picture at our backyard, it's the railing on our terrace and there's over 30 centimetres (over 12 inches) of snow on top of it! (That is my craft ruler you see against the snow and it is 30 centimetres/12 inches). I think there's even more snow on the ground... So no green grass and no spring flowers - bohoo! I'm so ready for spring to come (although I'm worried we might be buried in snow before it does... ;D ) and all this snow to melt away!
Kiitos, kun käväisit ja kiitos, jos kommentoit! Mukavaa kevään alkua! (Positiivisuus palkitaan, eikö?! ;) )
Thanks for your visit and for any comment you may wish to leave me! Have a happy March! :)
