Garden From the Heart Thank You

Garden From the Heart
January is the time for Seed Catalogs and New Year's Resolutions.  There's nothing like curling up on the couch with new seed catalogs, and a cup of hot cocoa to bring warmth and hope.  The Garden from the Heart stamp seemed the perfect stamp set to wish you a Happy New Year.

On January 16 I will be hosting an opportunity tea. To reserve a place at the table call me today at 419-560-5014. Can't make the tea but want information.

Lovely As a Tree in the Light of the Moon

Lovely as a tree 002 

Last night as I walked my dog along the snow covered path in the moonlit woods behind our house, the night time sky made a desperate attempt to cover me in darkness. But the attempt was in vain, for the moon shone brightly on my snowy white path. The stars twinkled as if winking at me. Everywhere I walked the snow sparkled like diamonds.

Stamping Tips: Above is my attempt to capture the moment. To make the snow, I pressed a torn piece of Whisper White card stock onto my VersaMark pad. The moon is a 1" Circle punch of Glossy White card stock. The tree lined background is from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set, and was stamped with Basic Black craft ink. The stars are from the itty bitty background stamp set stamped with Whisper White craft ink. Next, I coated all the inked images with iridescent Ice Embossing powder and heat embossed them with my Heat Tool.  To convey the message that I could see clearly, I attached a window sheet with Mini Library Clips.  The card base is also a window sheet.

Having trouble getting your Mojo going after the Christmas Holiday? Try following this simple sketch from a SUDSOL Chat & Challenge.  Sometimes I have trouble reving up my creative engine too, and that's when I go to a sketch for inspiration.  We're getting a lovely covering of fluffy White snowflakes at the moment.  They're so beautiful that I couldn't resist adding snowflakes using the Jumbo Snowflake punch for this quick and easy after Christmas Thank You card.
