Evenin' all, how are we tonight? Tis a little bit chilly around the tip of my tail and there was a definite coating of frost on the fur this morning. Could this be the long overdue winter finally arriving? I doubt it, it will probably be back up to 18C tomorrow! This time last year we were up to our knees in snow.
Now, as my boss will tell you, I have a knack of finding ways to avoid horrible jobs, like filing. And right now, Christmas is falling into that category. So, when I found this stamp whilst having a rummage, it did not take much persuading for me to use it to make a card for my dad that is only three months before the due date!
Ingredients for this card:
Stamped Image: High Hopes
Papers: MME Lime Twist and scrap from box
Medium: Distress Inks
Now, I have a bit of a grumble. And it all came home to roost with this particular pad of MME papers. I love quality papers that are a decent thickness and have a good finish to them and MME papers fall nicely into that category, along with some other big names on the market, but ....... why do double sided?! In this pad there are only two sheets of each - so you end up using two designs for one card (the reverse of this alphabet paper is the lush brown polka dot) - it makes my heart weep as it feels so wasteful. So, here is a small suggestion, reduce the weight of the papers ever so slightly (these are more like a light cardstock anyway) and only print on one side! Or is that just me?
Anyway, it is grocery shopping for me tonight - my life is one big, frantic, social whirl - so I'm off to try and write a list. Be back with you on Friday with a DT card for Winter Wonderland.
