A Fresh Hello

I created this design a few weeks ago and am just now getting the time to upload it. Love this fun color combo…another variation of my teal/olive combos…this one in darker tones pulled from the My Mind’s Eye patterned paper layer. To keep it fresh…a vanilla card base.

This morning I’m sitting here with a coffee and a peanut butter cookie we made last night. It’s been so long since I baked cookies…everyone was MOST appreciative. Lots of snow here today after yesterday’s snow squalls. At one point I could not even see the driveway…about 10 feet from my living room window! Now if the temperatures would just come up slightly to make it a little more bearable…these kids could get out and play in it! I do love winter but right now…I’d love some spring!

Fresh Hello


This design uses some very simple stamping of this Kim Hughes’ Silhouette Blooms 1 stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms. Simply inked and repeat stamped twice more without reinking. This stamp is sooooooo pretty you just don’t need any fancy techniques. The new Silhouette Blooms 2 is just as stunning and I can’t wait for it to arrive in the mail! I actually have my peripheral vision fixed on the mailbox as I write this! 😉

Edited to add…Can you hear me shouting with joy?! My HUGE pile of new rubber JUST arrived! (10:17 am) Wohoo!!! I’m off to start cutting! 🙂 I’m bouncin’!

For my background, I simply stamped it with my French Script Backgrounder in Canvas Palette Hybrid Ink and inked the edges to highlight the texture of the Prism cardstock. One of the things I love about Prism cardstock is the two options…one side has a bumply texture and the other is smooth. To add a little embellishing…a scrap of olive May Arts ribbon held with a jumbo Karen Foster Designs brad.
