Have you heard we're in for a huge snowstorm this week? In our area outside Chicago, we are expecting about 18 inches of the white stuff Tuesday/Wednesday (although I heard that one computer model is predicting up to 34 inches!!!!)
I guess "snow on the brain" was my inspiration for this birthday card I made for my Dad. I like the look of this stamp, but everytime I use black ink on it I always think it looks too dark, so this time I thought I'd try a snowy look. I like it! In fact, I think I might have to make a couple more of these to add to my stash. I would have done them all earlier, but I ran out of ribbon - darn, guess that means I need to go ribbon shopping! (tee-hee!)
I'm not sure why the card looks kind of wonky in this photo. I think I need to investigate how to take better pictures of my cards. That might be a good project on Wednesday during the snowday it looks like we'll have.
I was hoping that this week would bring good health to our home, unfortunately, my little guy is still coughing a lot. So, he staying home again today - my older son was so excited to go back to school today after missing three days last week.....we're so lucky that he loves school!
I hope you and your families are all healthy and if you're in the path of this upcoming snowstorm, I hope you stay safe and warm. Seems to me it will be the perfect time to stay inside and get inky!
