OWH MWT - flowers

Hey there! Can you believe tomorrow is Thursday already? I admit I'm glad; I had been sleeping in later than usual during my daughter's Christmas vacation and this morning's wake up was rather brutal. :o


Today's Operation Write Home challenge is to make a card with flowers. It's time to make spring cards already, given the time it takes for cards to be mailed overseas and then back here to family and friends. I will also admit that sometimes it's hard to project my mindset forward that far... I can play holiday music in the fall to inspire me but the winter wonderland and arctic winds outside my window don't exact scream, "spring!!"



One of my new-to-me and cheap Tim Holtz finds came in very handy on this card, which is also sketch 138:


Basic Grey Eva dp; Gina K cardstock (dark chocolate)
Unity stamp co "feel the joy" (flower) and random sentiment stamp
Tim Holtz victorian velvet and antique linen inks
random pearls from stash
Sorry the picture is a bit blurry! :( The sentiment reads "love you love you love you always". Thanks for visiting me today! :) Remember, my friend Sarah and I are teaming up to challenge each other in our crafting for 2013. We'll announce our first challenge soon!
