The winter that won't quit has reared its ugly head again and is dumping another foot of snow in my yard. I took this opportunity to clean the house and make a thank you card. Later I'll watch another episode of The Walking Dead. I had a lot more fun making the card than I did cleaning the house in case you're wondering.
The card is a thank you card which I needed to replenish my stash. I've been concentrating on those a lot lately because I was wiped out. At my office we tend to receive lots of candy and other assorted gifts from customers at the end of the year and I always donate the thank you cards to be sent. Once I did that I realized that I really didn't have all that many left so I'll be making quite a few of those as time goes by. Today's card was made with the colors at Color Throwdown and the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch.
I think it's been a while since I inked up this pretty Verve flower. It's one of my favorites so that's a real shame. It's so easy to get caught up with the latest new stamping stuff and neglect the things that we already have. So I like to peruse my stash every so often and see what's been gathering dust. This flower is timeless and classic and I'll never part with it so it's only fitting that I take it out and give it some ink every so often!
This crazy winter weather seems to be affecting lots of people across the country so I hope that wherever you are you are safe and holed up with your stamping supplies! Spring is coming - it's only a matter of time - so hang in there!
